    1969: Brian Jones drowned while under the influence of drugs and alcohol after taking a midnight swim in his pool, aged 27. His body was found at the bottom of the pool by his Swedish girlfriend Anna Wohlin.

Jones was one of the founding members of The Rolling Stones and in the early 60’s used the name "Elmo Lewis."

          Did they not give Brian Jones the boot over drugs and alcohol Richards must have been keeping his head down in those days.

          To say we threw out a founding member over drugs and Keith Richards has been a member for the last 2 centuries that makes you shake your head.

            Especially since Brian Jones put the Stones together.
