Brian Jones

1942 – 1969

Lewis Brian Hopkins Jones (28 February 1942 – 3 July 1969)

known as Brian Jones, was an English musician and a founding member of the Rolling Stones.
His main instruments were the guitar and the harmonica, but he played a wide variety of other instruments. His innovative use of traditional or folk instruments, such as the sitar and marimba, was integral to the changing sound of the band.
He was originally the leader of the group, but Mick Jagger and Keith Richards soon overshadowed him, especially after they became a successful songwriting team. Jones developed a serious drug abuse problem over the years and his role in the band steadily diminished.
He left the Rolling Stones in June 1969 to be replaced by guitarist Mick Taylor.
At around midnight on the night of 2–3 July 1969, Jones was discovered motionless at the bottom of his swimming pool at Cotchford Farm. His Swedish girlfriend, Anna Wohlin, was convinced he was alive when they took him out, insisting he still had a pulse. However, by the time the doctors arrived, it was too late, and he was pronounced dead. The coroner's report stated "death by misadventure", and noted his liver and heart were heavily enlarged by drug and alcohol abuse. As Jones was 27 at the time of his death, he is one of the well known members of the 27 Club.
