The definitive chronicle of original Rolling Stone Brian Jones is headed to DVD and major streaming outlets on June 12th. Rolling Stone: Life And Death Of Brian Jones by Danny Garcia is clearly not sanctioned by the Rolling Stones, and features no original music. What it does have is people who knew Jones throughout his life, including testimonials from Stones tour manager Sam Cutler, Jones’ daughter Barbara Anna Marion, Dick Taylor and the late-Phil May of the Pretty Things, and Jones' confidante Prince Stash Klossowski de Rola, among an assortment of British journalists.
The film has just wrapped up a run of successful screenings across the North America, Europe, and South America after a December world premiere in London at the Regent Street Cinema.
Brian Jones, a blues enthusiast, both named and led the original group, which included Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and keyboardist Ian Stewart. Shortly after turning professional, Stewart, whose looks didn't fit with the band, signed on as their road manager.
