Brian Jones Photographed by Ethan Russell at Cotchford Farm in England, Spring 1969

Ethan Russell was one of the definitive chroniclers of the ’60s music scene. From Jim Morrison to the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones, here are some interesting photos of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones taken by Ethan Russell at his home in England in the spring of 1969.


“I found myself driving through the green hills of Sussex to visit Brian Jones in his new house,” Russell said. “With some fanfare, Brian had just bought the country home of A. A. Milne, the creator of Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. To me it seemed somehow perfect that this blond-haired rock and roller should have inherited the house of Pooh. For Brian, with his blond pageboy haircut, looked like a fully-grown Christopher Robin. This was sacrilegious of course but that’s what he was — we were — doing, wasn’t it? He was a Rolling Stone doing Rolling Stone things!”
