Brian Jones' Diary
The year 1969 was one of the most pivotal years modern history: the first moon landing; Woodstock; the Tate-LaBianca murders; the first trans-Atlantic flight of the Concorde; and the end of the 1960’s revolution on the blood-soaked track of Altamont Speedway in California.
This negative synergy began with a body found on the bottom of a swimming pool in southern England on July 3rd. The founder, artistic driver and symbol of the Rolling Stones, Brian Jones, died under mysterious circumstances that night launching a bizarre string of celebrity deaths which included Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison. It also signaled the end of music as an artistic endeavor and ushered in the era of big business.
"Brian Jones’ Diary," explores this transitory time in history through eyes of a rock wannabee named Andrew Widgeon, who just happens to die violently in the midst of playing a Rolling Stone song. A disheartened soul, Andy is propelled to an area between life and death where he comes face-to-face with his idol, Brian Jones, the founder of the Rolling Stones, as well as a gathering of persons who died at the same instant as Jones.
The area appears to be a giant holding pen for all the unattained dreams of the 1960’s with young Andy as the reluctant interloper.

Brian Jones Aftermath
"I found this to be a very enjoyable read. Well worth it if you love Brian Jones. The author actually nails what Brian Jones would be like in the afterlife. Of course the story really revolves around another musician who is obscure. These broken musicians in a strange way come together as fate would have it to inadvertantly help one a other along with a small group of others. A lot is referenced to Brian when he was alive. Especially his musicianship and his contribution to the Rolling Stones. The author does not forget that Brian Jones was just as important as Mick and Keith were. She also does not sugarcoat what a big pain Brian could be when he wanted to be. Just a very bizzare entertaining fictional read".
"I am a HUGE fan of Brian Jones and really enjoyed this book. Not the most historically accurate account of Brian's life and the events he went through and was part of but I was still entertained. Give it a read"!
