With the Rolling Stones

Brian was a founding member of the original Stones line-up, but by the mid-60s drugs had taken control of his life. In July 1969, having recently been informed by the rest of the band that he was no longer welcome as a member, he was found dead in his swimming pool at his house in Cheltenham, England.
