'ROLLING STONE BEAT UP WOMEN'

A NEW book about the Rolling Stones claims Cheltenham-born guitarist Brian Jones was violent to women.

The late guitarist, who drowned in his swimming pool in 1969, features in the book Old Gods Almost Dead, by Stephen Davis.

Mr Davis tells how the rock star had a reputation for violence towards girlfriends.

The book reads: "Off-stage Jones was known for the brutal way in which he treated his girlfriends. One morning, during a tour of America, a beautiful young model emerged from his room in tears, covered in bruises and with both her eyes blackened, saying that he had raped her and then beat her up."

Mr Jones is also said to have had sex with prostitutes and once claimed to have slept with 130 women.

The book also looks at his drug-taking and claims that on one occasion he had sex with Marianne Faithfull after taking LSD.

In another section of the book, Mr Jones is said to have refused to play the hit song Satisfaction in concerts, instead playing the tune to Popeye The Sailor Man.

The Cheltenham-based Brian Jones fan club, which is hoping to erect a blue plaque for their hero at his former home in Eldorado Road, are shocked at the allegations.

Member David Reynolds said: "He was quite a promiscuous person and he was certainly the most good looking, his blond hair attracted women.

"Pat Andrews, his girlfriend in Cheltenham, thought he was a real sweetheart.

"He was angry when he lost his girlfriend Anita Pallenberg to Keith Richards and that seems to be something of a turning point, but I don't have any evidence to suggest that he was a violent person."

The club is hopeful that a plaque outside Mr Jones childhood Cheltenham home can be fixed to coincide with the rock star's birthday in February.
