Brian Jones, original member of the Rolling Stones

Founding member of The Rolling Stones, Brian Jones, was discovered motionless at the bottom of his swimming pool at Cotchford Farm by his Swedish girlfriend Anna Wohlin.  The coroner’s report stated “Death by misadventure””while under the influence of drink and drugs.”

Two days after his death, The Rolling Stones played a free show in Hyde Park. The show was originally intended to introduce their new guitarist, Mick Taylor. Before playing, Jagger read a poem by Shelley before thousands of white butterflies were released above the crowd.
