Do You Wanna Be A Rock & Roll Star? Rolling Stone Competition
Rolling Stone announced today the launch of its first-ever "Do You Wanna Be A Rock & Roll Star?" competition, in which 16 undiscovered acts will compete for the ultimate prize: To be the first band or artist not signed with a major label to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone. The winner of the six-month competition, presented in partnership with Garnier Fructis, will also receive a recording deal with Atlantic Records. "Do You Wanna Be A Rock & Roll Star?" will be featured in Rolling Stone, RollingStone.com, AOLMusic.com and AtlanticRecords.com, and will include several online voting rounds, with the final two acts going head-to-head at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in June.

The winner will be announced on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and will appear on the cover of the August 18 issue, which will be on newsstands August 5.
