my god, that is truly one ugly statue! pfew! Did he just take acid? Now I understand why to people of CHeltenham weren't too happy with all this, and even didn't want a Brian Jones street. A statue like this devaluates all estate in the street by at least 25%...

I can't believe my eyes. Didn't he deserve something better?

Sponsored by the Orangists?.. My god, and not hjust the colour but the whole cut. Also, have a look at the pictures of the unveiling: looks like some sort of prize ceremony in an old peoples home!

Wow - that's just goddamn awful!
Like some kids wanted to make a joke at night and put a cheap wig on it!

The face is wrong. It doesnt capture his character (any facet or era) - maybe its the photo, & if you see it in person...but I doubt it.

uuuuurrrrrrggggghhhhhh.....looks like my mum in the 60's on a really, really bad perm-day.....

and it's probably a bit insulting to some that they couldn't at least have commissioned his bust with a decent sculptor, did they cast a bronze efigy from work done in plasticine by the local under-fives-kiddies-group???? ...

Wow! I have to agree with everyone, that's one ugly sculpture. The only thing I do find interesting is the golden hair. But matched with the green face, Brian comes across more as a Marvel comic book villain than a musician to be seriously appreciated . . .

Poor Brian he deserved something far better than this.The artist who did this needs stringing up.Brian Jones was an icon not some cartoon character from Mars.

He looks like a motorcycle rider. Let it go. At least he is remembered.

Were any of his family in attendance?
And for that matter are his parents still alive?

Have you ever lent somebody $20 and never seen them again? It was probably worth it.

For the first time there seems to be a total consensus here in IORR!

Simply horrible. A sick joke. Tasteless.

I just woke up, but I wish I was still asleep. This is the ugliest bust I've ever seen.

LORDY< That is the ugliest bust I've ever seen. And I have seen many an ugly bust. This is where I would call for willful destruction of public property. I want to say that I hope a gang of guys gets together, gets drunk and tears that insult down. But it looks like a couple of kids already did a number on it.
Who is the master who created this piece? How can I contact him? I have some morew work for him.

At least this piece of art will not escape people's attention.

I was in a kind of shock all day and could not react. The close up picture woke me up a little bit. At least there is some resemblance with BJ.

Though it still looks like a Halloween mask...

Let it rock!

One thing is sure : no way that this bust will be stolen a day like the Jim Morrison bust on his grave in Père Lachaise during the 80's !

Look at the image below the head... it looks like a soldier wearing the wrong helmet! These people should be prosecuted!
