Brian Jones

He looked like a real sweet guy, why did he have 2 get into drugs? I'll bet he was a real sweetie

Lewis Brian Hopkins-Jones was born on February 28, 1942 in Cheltenham, Glouchestershire, England. He died on July 3, 1969, in Hartfield, Sussex, England and the suspected cause of death was drowning. He was  5'6'' and he was the one to come up with the name for the band, by taking it from an old Muddy Waters song called Rollin' Stone Blues.

The first woman he ever truly loved was an Italian-born model named Anita Pallenberg. He composed the music for a movie she was in called Degree of Murder in 1967. He also began experimenting with alcohol and drugs. He fell even deeper into drugs and alcohol when he found out that Anita had left him for fellow Stones member Keith Richards and that they had sex in the back of a car. In November 1968, he bought Cotchford Farm, the house formerly owned by Winnie the Pooh author A.A. Milne. The Stones Rock and Roll Circus was the last time anyone saw Brian alive. In June 1969, he lost touch with the band

His trademark is his long blonde hair.

Is interred at Priory Road Cemetery in Glouchestershire, England
Was kicked out of the Rolling Stones for heavy drug use.
Considered the original founding member and namer of the Stones
At 27 years old, he is a member of the Forever 27 club. This is a club for all musicians who died at that age, including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and Janis Joplin
