On this day in 1969, Brian Jones passed away.
“There had been no love lost between Brian and the workmen, and a couple of days before his death Brian went up to London and stopped the workers wages, leading to an even bigger rift. On the night of his death, Brian had gone to the garage flat to try and clear the air with Thorogood, inviting him and friend Janet Lawson to the main house for a drink. Thorogood had suggested they went for a swim and Anna joined them in the pool until Janet called to say there was a phone call for her. It was while Anna was in the house taking the call that Brian drowned. She alleges that Thorogood warned her afterwards to keep her mouth shut and stick to the story he had given in his statement, that Brian appeared to have been drinking heavily.”
Rest in Peace, Brian. You’re such an inspiration to me and you’ll always be my favorite Rolling Stone
