Wayback Wednesday: Brian Jones Of The Rolling Stones

February 28th is the birth anniversary of Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones. Jones was the founder and original leader of the Stones. He came up with the name for the band. But within a year, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, whom Jones recruited as band members, began taking over the direction of the group.

This video details Jones’ all-too-short career, and how his time with The Stones, and sadly, his life, came to an end.
