The original Jeff Beck Group with Ron Wood was phenomenal. Ronnie's bass playing was 'killer' and ground-breaking. Perhaps one of the best bass players in rock history.

Finally, a very good article on Brian Jones, which pretty much credits him for the formation of the Rolling Stones. What was also interesting about the piece written by Paul Trynka was his assertion that Brian was the mastermind behind turning the masses onto the blues and making it a global force. He tells of how singer Paul Jones turned Brian's invitation down to join forces with him in 19

Keith wanted to get to the bottom of what happened to Brian the night he died, but he couldn't attend his funeral a couple days later? Talk about love/hate relationships.

When it comes to the Rolling Stones' bad boy image and behavior, it all starts with Brian Jones. He was basically 'Keith Richards' on steroids, and that was in 1962.

I love the sound/tone from Keith's guitar. The song marked a new era in the Stones' music with the intro of Bobby Keys on sax. It was party time!

QuoteHis MajestyIt's great that he moved on to dulcimers, recorders, vibraphone's, marimba's, piano's, mellotrons etc etc. It's great Brian went on to all those exotic instruments for a little while, yes. But when he's still playing sitar on Beggars (by 1968, way passe) or ridiculously tapping an African drum on Midnight Rambler, it's not so great. Keith is ri

QuoteHis Majesty Quoteneptune I always felt that what made the song were the vibraphone/marimba notes played throughout the track, not so much the accordion. Lol. What's so funny about this? The vibraphone is the main riff of the song, and provides an air of elegance to the track.

Brian looks like absolute crap here. Fat, out-of-it, and . . . fat. A far cry from 1965. But, I agree with HM, why can't we at least hear Brian's rhythm guitar.

I've always loved this 1964 Stones tune which appears on Metamorphasis and, later, The London Years box set. It's got that really swinging early '60's sound with that nice echoey bass pattern. The two things I love about the track is the really deep-sounding lead guitar riff and the saxophone. According to the scant sources about this song, neither Brian nor Keith play guitar

Also, it's a known fact the Stones were in Los Angeles from December of 1965 to March, 1966 recording Aftermath. Brian probably took some trips to NYC during that time, as was his habit whenever he was in America for an extended period.

QuotePhil GoodFirst, I can't judge by the pic if it's Brian or not. What I do know is that, regarding photos, the light sometimes really fools you. I agree about light in photos fooling you. The angle of the light and depth probably makes the nose look a little more 'pointed' than it is. I think that's Brian and the photo was probably taken in January or February of

QuoteTheDailyBuzzherdNeptune, yet another infuriating side to Brian, NEVER satisfied. "I Just Can't be Satisfied" ... "Can't Get No Satisfaction". Yeah, sometimes he didn't know greatness when it blasted him in the ears. The admirable thing about Brian was that he spoke his mind. He often came across as a confused, 'unsatisfied' lad, but many great

The only non-slide solo Brian did, to my knowledge, is the Tell Me solo. There was a big discussion about this a couple of years ago and most 'experts' on the site agreed it was probably Brian because they are mere plucked chords. I also think its quite possible that the acoustic solo on Under the Boardwalk is Brian. Other than those two, there are no songs featuring Brian on non-sli

QuotepaulmBJ deserves credit for being "obsessed" about the Stones (Jagger's word), and giving them the push to make it, in the beginning. So props there, and with the french horns and sitar. Beyond that, it's all Keith. Even when BJ was technically alive, Keith had to record the lead parts. Sympathy is an example. MT blew the doors off anything BJ could contribute on guitar.

QuoteDoxaI still rate Brian's slide guitar the most effective quitar solo ever in the recorded history of the Stones with Keith's "Sympathy" solo. Brian's slide solo burst the doors open in 1963, charting new paths for how rock guitar could be used. I'm sure guys like Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Syd Barrett, Lou Reed, etc. took notice. A very underrated

QuoteRedhotcarpetI also believe that Keiths opinions on Brian are pointless if you dont know the context. I dont think he knew Brian that well, I'm sure he observed him and Brians different goals in life just like he observed the stable Mick. Keith is working class. That mattered in London in the 60s. His only goal in life was to play guitar, have a dog and a girl and heroin to numb out memo

Why else does Brian stand out in the High Tide cover? Those loud red pants!
