Happy Birthday Brian Jones, here’s Cocksucker Blues!

Published: 28th Feb, 2012

The first part of many

Had things turned out differently, Brian Jones wouldn’t have died in a dreadful swimming pool accident, and instead he’d be turning 70 today. He might even still be lurching around on stage with his old pals Mick and Keef. But no. Still, we thought we’d doff a massive lady’s hat to the man, by splitting into two teams – one lot armed with inflatable hammers, the others with actual truncheons and pepper spray – to fight it out to choose presents. Once the other team had finished wailing and making a really big deal out of a bit of heavy bruising, it boiled down to a toss up between some nice egg cups or a notoriously naughty video of his band mates on tour. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Brian!
