WHY BRIAN JONES?
Brian Jones formed the greatest band in the world. He put and ad in Jazz News in 1961; it attracted Ian Stewart and Jeff Bradford. Then Mick Jagger met them at the Ealing R&B Club and joined their rehearsals, bringing his mates Keith Richards and Dick Taylor.
Without Brian the Rolling Stones would surely have never existed! He also was a leader, a key member.
He was one of the first “white folks” to play slide guitar and play it like a bastard. The way he added harmonicas was outstanding. His works with special instruments like mellotron, marimba, recorder, dulcimer, clarinet, saxophone, sitar, organ, piano and harpsichord made his and the Rolling Stones sound unique an original.
He also co-wrote many songs but was not credited properly.
He left the Stones to make his own music, but unfortunately, he died some days later.
