Rolling Stone: Life and Death of Brian Jones
Gary Lucas, Please Kill Me!, 7 September 2020
The acclaimed guitarist Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley, Gods and Monsters, Lou Reed, et al.) has long held a special flame for Brian Jones, the co-founder of the Rolling Stones whose deep love of American blues gave the band a gritty edge the Beatles lacked. A provocative new documentary, Rolling Stone: Life and Death of Brian Jones, inspires Lucas to examine Brian's often overlooked importance to the Stones, as well as Brian's influence on Lucas himself.
