The Last Photoshoot of the Rolling Stones With Brian Jones, May 1969

To make matters worse, in March 1969, Brian Jones borrowed the band’s Jaguar to go shopping. The parked car was towed, and so Jones hired a chauffeur-driven car to get home. Then, in May 1969, Jones crashed his motorcycle into a store window and was secretly taken to hospital under a fake name. From that point on, despite attending a few recording sessions, Jones was no longer a major contributor to the band.

Talk about making a complete 180! Mick Jagger told Jones that he would be fired if he didn’t show up to a scheduled photoshoot. In the end, he showed up, but he was looking frail. His last photo as an official Rolling Stone, took place on May 21, 1969. The photos were taken by Ethan Russell, near Tower Bridge and also at George Nichol’s studio in London; later resulting in the cover and gatefold pics used for the Through The Past, Darkly (Big Hits Vol.2) compilation album.
