indigo girl amy ray takes shot at rolling stone
jan 5, 2001, 9:35 am pt


indigo girl amy ray is using her first solo album to get a few messages
across, one of which is directed at rolling stone editor and publisher jann
s. wenner.


on "lucystoners," from the forthcoming stag (allstar, dec. 7, 2000), ray
calls wenner on what she says is rolling stone's lack of adequate coverage of
the indigo girls over the years, despite the fact that nearly all of their
albums have gone gold or platinum (the magazine has never done a major
feature on the duo). the song begins with a jab at the press in general ("we
were talking ticket slump/we try to put our finger on it/and quantify the
undoing of each little step/its just a lack of press") before pointing a
finger directly at wenner.


"janny wenner, janny wenner," she sings on "lucystoners." "rolling stone's
most fearless leader/gave the boys what they deserved/but with the girls he
lost his nerve."


"[jann wenner] is a notorious symbol to a lot of women of sexism in the
industry -- that magazine is and he is -- but he's a symbol, i don't know
him," explains ray on the phone thursday (jan. 4). "it's not a personal
vendetta i have with him. i think rolling stone, rather than a tastemaker,
has been a real follower in the last five years and is willingly reflecting
sexism and i don't appreciate it."


"lucystoners" is named after followers of 19th century feminist lucy stone,
the first female in massachusetts to receive a college degree in 1847 and
organizer of one of the first national conventions on women's rights in 1850.
upon marriage, stone kept her maiden name, inspiring other women who did the
same to adopt the term "lucy stoners" as a result.


although ray says she has no personal ill will towards wenner, she does feel
rolling stone has dropped the ball on the indigo girls over the years. "i
wouldn't say i feel personally dissed by them but i would say that i feel
they have never given us our due," she says. "we have been playing together
20 years. we have a 12-year recording history with epic. we've put out seven
[studio] records, many of them have gone platinum.


"we've toured all over the world," she continues. "we've had one page in
rolling stone for our first album, a quarter-page on honor the earth, a
couple of random notes and some record reviews and that's it. that's not
enough. it's not an ego thing with me. i just think if it was a male group,
they would have paid more attention."


in all fairness to the magazine, rolling stone featured five female musical
acts on the cover in 2000, compared to that of eight male -- a respectable
ratio when taking the musical trends of the year into consideration.


representatives of rolling stone served up a solid "no comment" on ray's
lyrics.


stag, due in stores on march 6 on ray's own atlanta-based indie daemon
records, is a much more plugged-in affair than most of ray's work with the
indigo girls. many of the tunes are more in line with the ray-penned tracks
"go" from 1999's come on now social and "scooter boys" from 1997's shaming of
the sun.
