Sonic Cinema Presents: Rolling Stone: Life and Death of Brian Jones
The first-ever documentary on the front-runner and founder of The Rolling Stones.

In the mid '60s, Brian Jones emerged as the poster boy of the Swingin’ London scene, topping the charts with The Rolling Stones and dating model/actress Anita Pallenberg. However, his excessive lifestyle and his reputation as "the original bad boy of Rock & Roll" cost him dearly. Targeted by the authorities and media, he spiraled out of control, losing both Anita and the respect of the Stones. Two years later, Brian was found at the bottom of his swimming pool, the verdict: death by misadventure. During the last 50 years many theories have emerged claiming that Brian was murdered and that it was covered up at high level; as this film discovers, the evidence for this is extremely compelling.

Long-time Rolling Stones bass guitarist Bill Wyman said of Jones, "He formed the band. He chose the members. He named the band. He chose the music we played. He got us gigs. ... he was very influential, very important, and then slowly lost it – highly intelligent – and just kind of wasted it and blew it all away."
