Brain Jones played guitar for the Rolling stones and was the original founder member and manager that got gigs for the band in 1962. As the band become more popular, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards became more confident in their song writing. Brian Jones became more distant from the band and thought their musical direction was drifting away from the Rythm and Blues he had originally brought the band together for. However, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had developed a winning formula with their songs and became more focused with the bands new direction and were more in tune with the group's growing popularity. In 1969 Brian Jones left the band. He was found dead in his home swimming pool a few weeks later. Thus he became one of the iconic members of the infamous 27s club along with a number of other Rock musicians.
