Just in time for Memorial Day, Rolling Stone Magazine published a spread showing rock legends having fun in the sun to get us in the mood for summer.

Many of the pictures are retro and show the music icons in their junior days, making the editorial a fun blast from the past.

See gallery to view some of the pics.
