Why can't ROLLING STONE do corrections?

Friday moring, Kat pointed out an error: ROLLING STONE calling IMMORTAL Ann Wilson's first solo album.  It's not.  That was 2007's HOPE & GLORY.


We check the Sarah Grant article today and it still hasn't beeen fixed:

“I got serious about making a record after Chris Cornell passed,” Wilson says. “It was just one too many for me to not do anything. All of these people seemed to just get up and leave all at once — David Bowie, Tom Petty, Leonard Cohen, George Michael, Lesley Gore and others whose songs I really admired.” On Wednesday night, Wilson returned to the Kimmel set with a physical manifestation of a year’s reflection. Her debut solo album, Immortal, which was released in September, is a moving selection of covers by recently departed rock stars, one of the tracks naturally being “I Am The Highway,” Cornell’s unchained masterpiece.

Exactly how does ROLLING STONE end up with such a f**ked up error to begin with?  You can only do one debut solo album and anyone writing for ROLLING STONE should be aware of that.

Are Sarah Grant and ROLLING STONE unaware of WIKIPEDIA?  That site notes:

In 2006, Wilson began recording her first solo album, Hope & Glory, produced by Ben Mink, and released by the Rounder (Zoe) Music Group on September 11, 2007.[11] Hope & Glory features guest appearances from Elton John, k.d. lang, Alison Krauss, Gretchen Wilson, Shawn Colvin, Rufus Wainwright, Wynonna Judd, and Deana Carter. Nancy also contributed. Three singles were released from the project, "Little Problems, Little Lies", "Isolation", and "Immigrant Song". That same year, Ann and Nancy were on stage for a series of concerts in Las Vegas.
The Hope & Glory version of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" which is available on Wilson's official MySpace page charted as "the No. 9 most podcasted song of 2007" on the PMC Top10's annual countdown.

They made the mistake, it's time for them to correct it and it's a really embarrassing mistake that shouldn't have survived even one proof read.  And yet it remains uncorrected.
