HISTORY


The Stones were the group which chased the Beatles through the sixties. However this gave them a bad image . The orginal members were, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards Brian Jones, Billy Wyman and Charlie Watts.  The group was started due to Mick's love of music and Brian's knowlege of the music. Keith became the creatative song writter after the song Satifaction but before this time Brian was the main man.  Brian was slowly being pushed out of the group and he had just quit the group and then two weeks later is when the swiming pool accident happen. We will never know if it was a accident or a drug overdose. Brian passed away in the mid-sixties and one wonders what the Stones would have done if he was still with them.  Mick taylor replaced brian in the summer of 1969 however he left the group in 1974 when Ron woods enter the group. The groups section of a name in 1962 was from a old Muddy Waters tune called Rolling Stone Blues.The group started with a Decca records contact and played a lennon/Mc Carthy song called I wanna Be Your Man. The groups first major hit was in June of 1964 with the song Not Fade Away. The groups major hit came in July of 1965 with the song Satisfaction.  In my opinion the album "Let it Bleed" was their masterpiece. There songs include "Love in Vain", "Midnight Rambler", "Gimmie Shelter" and many other great songs. The Stones continue on the hit train even through the nineties. The Stones would have to be considered a major inflenece to music.

The Stones are one of the few bands from the sixty's who can still fill a Stadium in the nineties! The Ro;;ings Stones were also another group who were on the Ed Sullivan show offen.  One of my favorite Rock trivia's has to due with the Stones on Sullivan. The night they played "Lets Spend The Night Together"  they were asked and did play the song singing "Lets Spend Some Time Together" ! The one thing which you must give the Stones credit of  being the one of the only groups ,who had major hits in the sixtys'seventies.eighties, and nineties!!!!!! In 1997 /98 the group just completed a world tour ,with their latest album "Bridges of Babylon" Two albums which every record collection should have is "Hot Rocks' and "Hot Rocks II"

Another major event in The Stones career which they may not want to remember is their famous Altamount Speedway Concert in California in 1969 just six months after the peaceful concert in Woodstock the nightmarsish murder occurred in front of the stage as the Hells Angels were being the body guards for the group. This event was made into a movie called Gimme Shelter. The incident happened during the group playing the song Sympathy for the devil and the group wasbanned from playing this song inmany locations. The group layed low for a year and a half after this happened but then came back into the spotlight with their Sticky Fingers album and the song Brown Sugar.

The group has always been know for their bad side of life . They have offen gotten into troble with the law in reguards to drugs and sex . but without a doubt they are one of the worlds greatest groups and have influenece music throughout their career.

Another part of the group history is their unbeleiveable concerts.   I would assume that they have sold out more stadiums than any other rock group in history and are still going strong today!!

It's hard to overestimate the importance of the Rolling Stones in rock & roll history. The group, which formed in London in 1962, distilled so much of the music that had come before it and has exerted a decisive influence on so much that has come after.

Every album the group released through the early Seventies - from The Rolling Stones in 1964 to Exile on Main Street in 1972 -- is essential not simply to an understanding of the music of that era, but to an understanding of the era itself. Though the Stones were not overtly political in their early years, their obsession with African American music - from Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf to Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye and Don Covay - struck a chord that resonated with the goals of the civil rights movement.

Soon, of course, the Stones - singer Mick Jagger, guitarists Keith Richards and Brian Jones, bassist Bill Wyman and drummer Charlie Watts, in those days - became synonymous with the rebellious attitude of that era. Songs like "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," "Street Fighting Man," "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Gimme Shelter" captured the violence, frustration and chaos of that era. For the Stones, the Sixties were not a time of peace and love.

The Stones were an indomitable force on the music scene, and they have continued to be to this day. Tattoo You (1981) added the classics "Start Me Up" and "Waiting on a Friend" to the Stones' repertoire, and took its prominent place among the Stones' most compelling - and most popular - later albums. Possibly the most underrated album of the Stones' career, Dirty Work finds the band at its rawest and most rhythmically charged, a reflection of the tumult within the band when it was recorded. True Stones fans have long worn their appreciation of Dirty Work as a hip badge of honor.
 


More significantly, though, the Stones have set a standard for live performance during this time. When the Stones began to be introduced on their 1969 tour as "The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World,' they were staking that claim on the basis of their live performances. It was almost fashionable for bands to withdraw from the road at that time - Bob Dylan and the Beatles had both done so. But the Stones set out to prove that writing brilliant songs and making powerful records did not mean that you were too lofty to get up in front of your fans and rock them until their bones rattled. The Stones' live shows - epitomized, of course, by Jagger's galvanizing erotic choreography - had earned the band its reputation in its earliest years, and that flame was being rekindled.

And that's the critical misunderstanding of the question, "Is this the last time?" that has been coming up every time the Stones have toured for close to forty years now. It's true that over the decades the Stones have been in the news for many reasons that have little to do with music - arrests, provocative statement, divorces, affairs, all the usual detritus of a raucous lifetime in the public eye. And there's no doubt that Mick Jagger is as famous a celebrity as the world has ever seen.


But, for all that, the Stones are best understood as musicians, and their own acceptance of that fact is what has enabled them to carry on so well for so long. For all the tabloid headlines, Mick Jagger is finally an extraordinary lead singer and one of the most riveting performers - in any genre - ever to set foot on a stage. Keith Richards is the propulsive engine that drives the Stones and makes their music instantly recognizable. Ron Wood is a guitarist who has formed a rhythmic brotherhood with Richards, but who also colors and textures the band's songs with deft, melodic touches. And Charlie Watts, needless to say, is one of rock's greatest drummers. He is both the rock that anchors the band, and the force that swings it. At once elegant in their simplicity and soaring in their impact, none of his gestures are wasted, all are necessary. He and Darryl Jones enliven the often-monolithic notion of the rock & roll rhythm section with an irresistible, unpretentious, jazz-derived sophistication.

Musicians live and create in the moment, and that's why fans still go see the Stones. Certainly there's also a catalogue of songs that only a handful of artists could rival. Surely there's also the desire to encounter a band that has played a pristine role in defining our very idea of what rock & roll is. But seeing the Rolling Stones live is to see a working band playing as hard as they can, and there's no last time for that.
 

 


BRIAN JONES

This brilliant multi-talented musician who attempted - albeit unsuccessfully - to juggle drug use with his musical output, died under questionable circumstances on the 3rd of July, 1969. Instead of setting a cronological timeline with the inevitable ending, I have collected images and information which sway freely to and from the early moments of his career and the end of his physical life.

Born on February the 28th, 1942 to Lewis and Louisa in a small town some 120 miles out of London, Brian Jones would live all but 27 years. He met his end in the bottom of a swimming pool at his Cotchford Farm home (once owned by famed "Winnie the Pooh" author A. A. Milne.)

Allegations of murder have surfaced in years since, among them are unfounded accusations towards anyone of three or more laborers whom were working on Brian's home at the time, rumors that we will not dignify by naming the individuals involved. Despite a report years later of a "death-bed confession", it will not be discussed here in detail. A great talent in the midst of recovery from drug and alcohol dependency was lost, and though it is easy to jump to conclusions about the circumstances surrounding his demise, we respectfully decline to do so. It is of course also important to discover the truth - and if it is other than what is known, we hope it surfaces.


Sad Day
The unflattering photo featured
in NYC papers following his death.

Erected in his birth place of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, memorials of Brian (Lewis Hopkin) Jones now stand. A more significant life-size statue of his likeness avaits unveiling much to the dismay of many residents whom remember him more for his troubles than his accomplishments. It may however still serve as a token of some pride as he is gazed upon as one of their own who made a name for himself to the world abroad. The legacy he left behind, including an unknown number of offspring to either underage or at times married women, have for the most part been forgiven since his life came to an unfortunate end some 35 years ago. There could be no doubt of his place in the annals of popular music history, something the residents of Cheltenham clearly recognized. Though most commonly regarded as the founder of the Rolling Stones, it does Brian no justice to imprison his talent to such a singular event. Among select others, he was a representative of the sixties musical output as a whole.

1942-66: The Rise of a Musical Visionary... words from a proud father, Lewis Jones.

"Up to a certain point, Brian was a perfectly normal, conventional boy who was well behaved and well liked. He did his studies. He was quite a model school boy. Then came this peculiar change in his early teens. He began to have some resentment of authority. He seemed to have first a mild rebellion which unfortunately became stronger as he grew older."

"For many years from the formation of the Stones, up to the end of 1966, Brian was extremely happy. What I firmly believe was the turning point in Brian's life was when he lost the only girl he ever truly loved. He changed suddenly and alarmingly from a bright enthusiastic young man to a quiet, morose, and inward-looking young man. His mother and I were quite shocked by the change in his appearance, and in our opinion, he was never the same boy again. It was at that time I think that he got mixed up with drugs perhaps, if indeed he was."

1966-69: The Decline and Fall of a Rollin' Stone.

"There were signs towards the end of his life when I would come down and see him that he was beginning to settle and he appeared calmer and he was becoming more outward looking. I feel if fate had been a little more kinder to him that he would have built up a life again with maybe a different kind of music and a different kind of group."

Brian strikes a leader's pose in 1963.

It is said that Brian was strongly against the idea of writing new material, and hoped the Stones would remain a blues 'cover' band as they were until late 1965. This was essentially Brian's band at first, and many strongly believe that he played the role of promotional representative and co-manager for the first few years. It was Brian's determination that brought the Stones to success so quickly. However, Mick [Jagger] was a talented writer and savvy businessman himself who's cooperation with Keith Richards became a prized commodity. The simple fact that Mick attracted so much attention was enough to break such an emotional soul (as was Brian's), but he found it more difficult to accept what was ever-increasingly clear ... that the band was heading in the direction that his lead singer wanted, and not his own.


Better days during the Stones first U.S. tour in 1964.
(Jones, Wyman, Watts, Jagger, Stewart, and Richards from left)

 

He gained the respect of many fellow musicians throughout his short career, such as the Beatles whom asked that he play a part in the recording sessions for Sgt. Pepper in 1967. Though You Know My Name (look up the number) was not included on Sgt. Pepper, it can be found on the Beatles' Past Masters Volume Two, and more recently (in complete form) on Anthology 2.

Though jobs of the other Stones were generally centralized to one or two roles, Brian's role was not so simply defined. He was the band's utility player on piano, guitar, harmonica (harp), drums, or whatever else was needed. At times, though more so in the earliest period, he had a strong hand in influencing the musical direction of the group. We witness a highlight in the sitar he introduced to the #1 single Paint It, Black. As Mick Jagger stated in his 1989 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame acceptance speech, Brian "...often took us off our bluesy course, with at times marvelous results."

Brian digs for buried treasure as Hendrix is left to ponder.

Brian Jones never released a solo music album or single. He did however begin a project (completed posthumously in 1972) bearing his name, though it was not of his own work. Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka was little noticed, but the inclusion of his name in the title did help to have the obscure Moroccan musical form recognized at a broader level. He played no part in the recordings, other than as a co-producer. Many incarnations of these recordings can be found on CD. It has been told that Moroccan artists to this day pay tribute to Brian in song.

<Brian Jones Presents the Pipes of Pan at Joujouka.

During his lifetime, Brian (along with future Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page) provided the score to the rarely seen film 'Mord und Todschlag (A Degree of Murder)', yet it was never released officially in any form. The only remnants of this work are occasional screenings at small independent theatres or on public television stations after the midnight hour. Though quite rare in itself, there is a CD which surfaced a few years back claiming to be the "A Degree of Murder" soundtrack. In actuality, someone recorded the music directly off a television broadcast using a hand-held microphone pressed against the speaker. This is a deplorable method of audio reproduction, as a result, the sound quality reflects this and the CD should be avoided.

It is to note that Brian granted only few interviews to the press after 1964. Be wary of 'interview' tapes or CDs, as it is not unlikely that it will fail to contain a single word spoken by Brian himself. A 'collector' CD from a noted Stones biographer gives the notion of including a rare 1967 Jones interview with an Australian radio station. When asked whom he thought was the biggest person in show business, "Brian" went on to say, "... unfortunately he has since passed, but Elvis Presley will always be my favorite."

[Though no one doubts the year of his death as being 1969, debate has surfaced regarding the year of birth. While photographs and documents show Brian's birth year as being 1942, his tombstone has '1943' inscribed.]

Brian had a close relationship with his fans and, to this day, many have fond memories of him. Though he may have tried, he failed to overcome his addictions until after he was forced to leave the Rolling Stones in 1969. His last full tour as a member was in 1966, after which he would only make few sporadic appearances, the final being the Rock and Roll Circus in December of 1968. As described by fellow Stones' members, he had become a ball and chain by 1967. After two years, it was obvious that the band could not afford to drag him around to shows and recording sessions just so he could be too drunk or high to function. His final musical output with the band was released on the 1969 Let it Bleed album.

Brian's Legacy in the Flesh:


Julian Mark

Brian was first a first-time father at the age of 16. Though the 'facts' regarding the true lineage of other children have come into question, at least five (5) children are known to exist or have existed.

1959 (m?/d?) - Simon (originally Barry David), son born to 14-year-old student Valerie (ln?). The baby would later be adopted.
1960 (Aug. 4) - unknown, daughter born to a married Cheltenham woman.
1961 (Oct. 22) - Julian Mark, son born to Pat Andrews.
1964 (Jul. 23) -
Julian Brian, son born to Linda Lawrence.
1965 (Mar. 24) - John (Paul Andrew), son born to Dawn Molloy, later adopted.
Read the 2005 Dawn Molloy Interview here.

It is said that Brian consistently asked the mothers of his children that if the child was a boy, he be named Julian. Brian was an avid admirer of Jazz great Julian "Cannonball" Adderley.


Excerpt from an actual letter written by Brian.

<His last professional photo ©Michael Cooper.
Original news article from 1969.

CHELTENHAM, ENGLAND, July 10, 1969- Scores of teenage girls wept
outside an ancient parish church here
where Rolling Stone Brian Jones was
once a choir boy and where his last rites
were held today.
Hundreds of miniskirted long-haired girls
heard Rector Hugh Hopkins, who confirmed Jones,
speak of "Brian the rebel".
Reading the Scripture story of the prodigal son,
Hopkins said Jones "had little patience with
authority, convention and tradition"

"Typical of Generation"
In this, Hopkins said, "he was typical of many
of his generation who have come to see in the
Rolling Stones an expression of their whole
attitude to life. Much that this ancient church has
stood for 900 years seems totally irrelevant to
them. And yet it is not humbug to come here
today to offer our prayers on this tragic occasion."
Hopkins also offered prayers for Marianne
Faithfull, ill in an Australian hospital. Her close
friend, singer Mick Jagger, in Australia with
her to make a film, was the only Rolling Stone
not present. Mick Taylor, wh
o recently took
Jones' place in the group, was there with Keith
Richard, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts.

TEN REASONS WHY THE ROLLING STONES  WERE 

 THE WORLD'S GREATEST ROCK AND ROLL BAND

 

 

 1.   BRIAN JONES' HAIR

Not only the longest, and the blondest, but the most distinctive coif to come out of the (first) British Invasion... hence his invariably being positioned as the focal point of the band’s publicity photos, not to mention album covers.  "Personally, I always make a point of cleansing my hair after every meal," a young Brian would defiantly inform the press when asked if the band, as their promo boasted, bathed only during months with an “R” in them.

 

 2.  ANDREW LOOG OLDHAM

Take equal parts Col. Parker and Phil Spector, mix with a liberal helping of Laurence Harvey (cf: "Expresso Bongo"), garnish with a dash of Anthony Burgess, and you have the wonderlad who transformed himself from failed pop crooner Sandy Beach to frustrated Brian Epstein gofer to chart-topping svengali of the world-famous anti-Beatles in a mere eighteen months.  Needles to say The Rolling Stones, not to mention Malcolm McLaren, would not - in fact, could not have ever risen to successfully battle the rock wars without the skilled example of Andrew Loog.

 

 3. THEIR STAGEWEAR

As a young impressionable tyke of nine, I remember how totally dumbstruck I was when chancing upon the Stones on a Red Skelton special in '64.  After months spent innocently bopping to squeaky-clean moptops on The Ed Sullivan Show, imagine my stupefaction when Mick Jagger, striped sweatshirt hanging, first suggestively shook his maracas in my parents' living room.  Keith hunched menacingly black and pirate-like over his Les Paul.  The rhythm section, shaggy and sullen.  And, ever the individual, Brian Jones nattily attired in a modish three-piece, every golden lock in place.  It must’ve worked: My grades, to say nothing of my standards, started tumbling the very next day.

 

 4. THE "PRODUCTION" ON THEIR RECORDS

The scene is Olympic Sound Studios, London, May 10, 1963 as recording of “Come On,” the Rolling Stones' first release, has just been completed:

                 Roger Savage  (engineer):  "What about the mixing?"

                 Andrew Loog Oldham  (producer):  "What's mixing?"

And thus the stage was shakily set for decades of recordings which in many ways gave birth to, and in retrospect certainly define, the very essence of garage (aka grunge, roots, and/or punk) rock.  From their initial cacophonous Oldham-by-the-seat-of-his-Levis sessions straight on up to their current multi-million-dollar-yet-still-somehow-Portastudioesque-sounding productions, Rolling Stones records are best-selling examples of the fine are of Feeling over Finesse; of Emotion over Edification.  And the ultimate irony?  "Come On" is now available on CD.

 

 5. CHARLIE WATTS' DRUMMING

Especially on "Paint It, Black"!

 

 6. THEIR ALBUM COVERS

From "December's Children" to (the untruncated original issue of) "Some Girls”, without forgetting “Through The Past Darkly,” “Sticky Fingers” (particularly the Spanish edition!)  and the until-recently-banned “Beggars Banquet,” Stones songs have always come both lovingly and luridly packaged inside the most quintessential photos, graphics and liner notes this side of “The Who Sell Out.”  Grand Prize Winner?  Without a doubt the bloody-morning-after portrait adorning the superb “Between The Buttons,” again starring Brian “Miss Amanda” Jones.  (Runner-up:  the infamous she-male sleeve on the “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing In The Shadow” single).

 

 7. "CHARLIE IS MY DARLING"

Forget "A Hard Day's Night," "Lonely Boy" and even "Gimme Shelter":  for a true docu-style glimpse of those once-swinging Sixties, "Charlie Is My Darling," produced, of course, by Andrew Oldham, boldly treads where no Arriflex had been before  (ie: into an Irish hotel ballroom circa 3 A.M., where them shit-faced Glimmer Twits butcher "Return To Sender" whilst sliding tumblers full of champagne back and forth across a grand piano top).  Also watch the band being savagely attacked on stage, and hear Brian describe what "surrealism" means to him.  I wonder why this has still never been screened in America?

 

 8. THEIR INSPIRED CHOICE OF SONG MATERIAL

Nary a Stones album or concert has existed solely on the works of Jagger/Richard(s)... some dusty old (rhythm'n') blues tune has been given the nod, and been performed in testament to, the moss upon which the band has always rolled  (excepting during that "Satanic Majesties" detour).  Hands-down Number One fave cover-tune Of All Time, however, has to be their little-heard manic mangling of "I Wanna Be Your Man" which, with all due respects to Ringo, absolutely shreds the Fabs' version.  And howzabout that Dylan cover on “Stripped”, huh?!!  Anyways…

 

 9. THEIR IMPECCABLE FLAIR FOR SELF-PROMOTION

From the early daze of urinating on gas stations ("we piss anywhere, maaann...") in 1965  to their jet-setting, trend-setting string of designer drug busts in the Seventies, the Stones have always been their own best press agents.  Not surprisingly either, having graduated with day-glo colours from the Andrew Oldham "As Long As They Spell The Name Right" school of PR.  And long after most of his bass-playing contemporaries had retired to Britain's loftier cricket estates and dry-out clinics, the oldest Stone was still taunting ires by marrying every schoolgirl-slash-model within reach.  I miss Bill Wyman.

Information

 

British R&B influence rock group formed in London in January 1963. Consisted of Mick Jagger,Kieth Richards, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts on drums.  The group was promoted as The Bad Boys ,in contrast to the Beatles. The first tour was with the Ronettes in 1964. The group made one movie called Gimme Shelter which told the story of the controversial Altamont concert on 12/6/69. Jones left the group shortly before drowning on 7/3/69 and was replaced by Mick Taylor. In 1975 Ron Woods replaced Taylor and is still with the band today. The group was inducted into the Rock Hall of Fame in 1989. The group had 39 top 40 Billboard Hits , starting with their first hit Tell Me in 8/01/64.

SOME SIMPLE FACTS

Recently Exile on Main Street album was voted in the top twenty of all time greatest albums by VH-1
The Rolling Stones are one of three major groups who had their own label in this era.
Even today when the group tours it is a major news item.
After being arrested for drug possession along with The Beatles both groups reacted differently . The Beatles released Hey Jude and mild song and The Stones released Street Fighting Man.

ALTAMOUNT  FREE CONCERT

 

 

The Altamont Speedway Free Festival was an infamous rock concert held on December 6, 1969 at the then-disused Altamont Speedway in Northern California, between Tracy and Livermore. Headlined and organized by the The Rolling Stones, it also featured, in order of performance: Santana, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers, and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and FACE, with the Stones taking the stage as the final act.[1] The Grateful Dead were also scheduled to perform between CSNY and the Stones, but canceled at the last minute owing to the ensuing circumstances at the venue. Approximately 300,000 people attended the concert, and some speculated it would be "Woodstock West." Filmmakers Albert and David Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin shot footage of the concert and incorporated it into a subsequent documentary film entitled Gimme Shelter.

The event is best known for having been marred by violence, including one killing and three accidental deaths (two of the deaths were caused by a hit-and-run car accident, another death was the result of a drowning in a drainage ditch). There were also four births

By some accounts, the Hell Angels were hired to be security by the Rolling Stones on recommendation from the Grateful Dead for $500 and free beer, a story Carter and Barger both vehemently denied.

The most famous death was that of Meredith Hunter. Hunter, an 18-year-old black man became involved in an altercation with some Hells Angels and drew a long-barreled revolver. It is disputed whether or not Hunter drew his weapon before or after he was stabbed the first time. He was stabbed five times in total and kicked to death during the Rolling Stones' performance. His graphic death near the stage was clearly captured on film by three separate cameras. The killer, Alan Passaro, was arrested and tried for murder in the summer of 1972, but was acquitted after a jury concluded he acted in self-defense because Hunter was carrying a handgun, drew it, and allegedly pointed it at the stage. It was also alleged that Hunter was under the influence of drugs.

This concert was only 6 months after the Peaceful Woodstock Concert and was even called the Woodstock west Concert.
