Rolling Stone’s 35th Anniversary Issue (on newsstands now) includes a collection of “American Icons” — “people, inventions and images that define our times” — and the iPod made the list. “Two years ago, I had a meeting with some people from Apple wherein I was singing the praises for iTunes,” writes electronic music artist Moby in the article. “My only problem with iTunes, I said, was that there wasn’t a portable MP3 player that was proprietary for the Mac. They kind of looked at each other with shifty eyes and said, ‘Well, we shouldn’t show this to you, because it’s only a prototype, but here it is…’ and they handed me the first-ever iPod. I couldn’t get my hands off of it. Now you can’t imagine music any other way.”
