Brian Jones, who was a founding member of The Rolling Stones, made the formal announcement that he was leaving the band on June 8th, 1969. His reason for leaving was that he “no longer see(s) eye to eye (with the group about) the discs we are cutting.”
In reality, the band had already fired / told him he was no longer a member because of his worsening drug use. The announcement was Brian’s way trying to hide the real reason. Sadly in less than a month Brian was found dead.
To this day there are many different theories of how he died.
Many feel that after Brian left the band, they were never as good. What are your thoughts about it?
