About

About Brian Jones

Brian Jones

BRIAN JONES d1969. The founder of The Rolling Stones. A talented musician and multi-instrumentalist with his main instruments being guitar, harmonica and keyboards. His innovative use of traditional folk instruments including the Sitar and Marimba became integral to the ever changing sound of the group. Although he was originally the leader of the group, his fellow band members Mick Jagger and Keith Richards soon overshadowed him, especially after they became a successful song-writing team. He developed a serious drug problem over the years, he became unreliable and his role in the band steadily diminished. He was asked to leave the group in June 1969 and guitarist Mick Taylor took his place. Brian Jones died aged just 27 less than a month later (July 3rd 1969) by drowning in the swimming pool at his home on Cotchford Farm Hartfield East Sussex. Bill Wyman said of his band-mate ; "He formed the band. He chose the members. He named the band. He chose the music we played. He got us gigs. ... Very influential, very important and then slowly lost it – highly intelligent – and just kind of wasted it and blew it all away."

Certification:

From a wonderful music autograph collection obtained by Susan B in and around the Leeds area during 1965-1967 (mostly at The Queens Hall Leeds). Many are dedicated to her with annotated places and dates. There is a post-mark attached to the rear of this letter dated May 12th 1966 ; we would assume this to be the date this letter was posted. The Rolling Stones were in the UK during most of April and May after finishing their European Tour on 5th April. They appeared on Top of The Pops on April 14th and their fourth UK album (Aftermath) was released. Between April 15-30th the group members had time off and Brian Jones spent time in Dublin with his girlfriend Anita Pallenberg. It is likely therefore that this letter was written during this break in schedule. Paint it Black was released on May 7th. AFTAL Dealer No13 and UACC RD Memorabilia UK COA.
