DO YOU WANNA BE A ROCK & ROLL STAR?
Posted: August 3, 2011
On August 3, Rolling Stone’s ‘Do You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star?’ finalist, The Sheepdogs together with music industry luminaries, VIPs and media, gathered at the Empire Hotel Rooftop in New York to celebrate the unveiling of the cover and raise funds for Music Unites.
Rolling Stone’s ‘Do You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star?’ contest began with 16 unsigned acts competing for the most coveted prize in music: the cover of Rolling Stone. After four rounds of public voting, the two finalists battled it out on stage last month at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN. The ultimate winner, in addition to being the first unsigned act to ever appear on the cover, will also receive a recording contract with Atlantic Records.
The Sheepdogs were joined by the Editors of Rolling Stone and Music Unites founder and Executive Director Michelle Edgar at the cover reveal party. Additional music was provided by DJ Paul Sevigny.
