How a teen Rolling Stones fan chronicled their career from the inside

CHICAGO (WGN-TV) — In 1978, Bill German turned 16-years-old, and like many kids his age was a major Rolling Stones fan.

He didn’t want to be a rock star, or simply go to their concerts. German wanted to chronicle their careers, and make a living doing so.

How does an innocent, straight-A student from an orthodox Jewish school in Brooklyn, New York, end up chasing the world’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll band around the world? It turns out his adventure had as many ups and downs as the Stones themselves.

In this piece from NewsNation affiliate WGN-TV, Larry Potash tells us how Bill German’s excellent adventure played out.
