Police to Re-Examine Brian Jones' Death

40 years after the passing of Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones, British police are said to be looking into new leads regarding his death. Originally ruled a drowning accident in 1969, there has been speculation for decades that foul play may have played a role in the case, despite Jones being under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time.

27 years old at the time of his death, Jones was a founding member of The Rolling Stones; a gifted multi-instrumentalist and arranger who made unique contributions to the band's sound and is also credited with coming up with the band's name.
