Rolling Stones to release 50th anniversary book
From Associated Press
March 02, 2012 12:30 PM EST

NEW YORK (AP) Still no word on a Rolling Stones anniversary tour, but the band will mark its 50th year with a new book.

Hyperion announced Friday that it will publish "The Rolling Stones: 50," an illustrated autobiography. The book, featuring rare photographs and commentary from the band, is scheduled for the fall.

The Stones have told their story in book form before. "According to the Rolling Stones," an oral history, was released by Chronicle Books in 2003.

BurningJournaldotcom is reconsidering the membership of one Buckethead. Not much is known about "Bucket..." but we intend ta get to the bottom this! Perhaps life in Minnesota has caused his attitude's decline. Perhaps his relationship to another member (In questionable standing) who claims ta be a 'rail,' but we have our doubts.

While BurningJournaldotcom does not endorse any particular musical group, or style of music, we are pro music. Whether you choose ta purchase the Rolling Stones book or not, we will continue selling our remaining 37, 247 copies. They are still available at our fan store, BurningJournaldotcom/railroadjunk/books

I'm keeping the Rolling Stones vinyl I have. I have a May 1966 Offical
Guide of the Railways in which I got ambitious with a pen in my youth
and made a very artistic scribble of "Some Girls" on the back cover.
I think it only enhances the value of that copy.

1966 Official Guide. "Some Girls" released 1978. Krink's youth? OK, I buy it.

The Rolling Stones are so different from any other band. I have my fair share of Stones LP's. Last time I played one...I cant remember. Still think
their selections of old blues songs to "bring to life again" are all winners.

Talk about talent... Brian Jones, fuckin' legend on guitar. He helped start the band... Played lead, and sang harmony on some of their best known covers of early Blues singles!

Sadly he left the 'Stones too soon! I still love "12X5" and "Meet the Rolling Stones' from back in the 1960s... I was in high school when they arrived on our shores! They stunned American audiences... We never got over 'em!

Brian Jones

Brian Jones love of the blues was at the heart of what he and the rest of the Rolling Stones were about from the very beginning.

His musicianship added so much to the singles that propelled the Rolling Stones into the pop charts, and he was one of the first people in Britain to play slide guitar. But he was also one of the ultimate 60s pop stars, with a creative and cutting edge fashion sense and an iconic hairdo to match, Brian remains a style icon to this day.

Born Lewis Brian Hopkin Jones at the Park Nursing Home, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, on Saturday 28th February 1942, Brians parents were well-to-do middle class. He attended a fee paying junior school and then the local grammar school where he excelled. Although Brians father obviously gave him the musical gene (he played piano and the organ and lead the local church choir) he hoped his son was that he would follow in his academic footsteps and go to university.

Brians overriding passion was music. After first hearing a Charlie Parker record at the age of 15, Brian persuaded his parents to buy him a saxophone. Having mastered the instrument he received an acoustic guitar for his seventeenth birthday. After leaving school Brian decided against university, and he took a succession of jobs before going to see the Chris Barber Band play a concert at Cheltenham Town Hall in 1961. Their set included a blues segment featuring Alexis Korner. Brian became obsessed with the blues and practiced slide guitar while listening to Elmore James and Robert Johnson records.

Brian was soon hitch-hiking to London where he would go to the Ealing Blues Club, sometimes sitting in with the Alexis Korners band. One night, Mick and Keith, on a visit to the club, saw Brian play slide guitar and were impressed with his rendition of Elmore Jamess Dust My Broom. Soon after Brian, Ian Stewart, Mick and Keith formed a band, and began rehearsing at Sohos Bricklayers Arms pub. On the 12th July 1962 they played their first gig at the Marquee Club, billed as The Rollin Stones.

While Brians musical prowess didnt extend to composing,  his extraordinary and versatile talent as a musician is found on all his recordings with the Stones, among them, his slide guitar on Im a King Bee, Little Red Rooster and No Expectations from Beggars Banquet. He plays the sitar on Street Fighting Man and Paint It Black, organ on Lets Spend The Night Together, marimba on Under My Thumb and Out Of Time recorder on Ruby Tuesday, dulcimer and harpsichord on Lady Jane, saxophone and oboe on Dandelion, mellotron on Shes a Rainbow, and harmonica on Not Fade Away, 2120 South Michigan Avenue and Prodigal Son.

Brians increasing estrangement from the band from around 1967 onwards led to him feeling isolated and unhappy with the musical direction of the Rolling Stones. In early 1969 he decided to leave the band that he had helped to form to try and find a new musical direction for his undoubted talents. Tragically in the early hours of the 3rd July 1969, aged twenty-seven years old, Brian drowned in the swimming pool of his new home in Ashdown Forest, Sussex.

Cy thinks of the piece on Mr. Jones above and thinks about the books he has read about Mr. Jones being mostly stoked completely out of his gourd for the last couple years of his life even though he was the (then) best, most versatile musician of the group.
