More About Brian Jones by Paul Trynka
 
 
 
Overview
For the first time, the complete story of the enigmatic founder of the Rolling Stones and the early years of the band
Brian Jones was the golden boy of the Rolling Stones--the visionary who gave the band its name and its sound. Yet he was a haunted man, and much of his brief
time with the band, before his death in 1969 at the infamous age of twenty-seven, was volatile and tragic. Some of the details of how Jones was dethroned are well
known, but the full story of his downfall is still largely untold.
"Brian Jones" is a forensic, thrilling account of Jones's life, which for the first time details his pioneering achievements and messy unraveling. With more than 120 new interviews, Trynka offers countless new revelations and sets straight the tall tales that have long marred Jones's legacy. His story is a gripping battle between
creativity and ambition, between self-sabotage and betrayal. It's all here: the girlfriends, the drugs, and some of the greatest music of all time.
Victors get to write history--but it's rarely fully true. The complete, magnificent story of the Rolling Stones can never be told until we disentangle all the threads and put Brian Jones back in the foreground.
