Brian Jones recording for 'Ruby Tuesday'

Brian Jones recording for ‘Ruby Tuesday’

Remember him? Brian Jones, founder of the Rolling Stones. Talented, smart, savvy, and overtaken by substance abuse, he was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool a few short months after he’d been asked to leave the band. It was 1969 and he was 27.

I wasn’t much of a Stones fan but for some reason I liked Brian Jones. I could never understand all the hundreds of girls screaming at the sight of Mick Jagger;  I thought Brian was way cuter. ‘Ruby Tuesday’ was released in 1967, but I didn’t realize it was him playing the recorder bit until years later.
