Rock Musician. He was a guitarist and founding member of the seminal and influential English rock band "The Rolling Stones". Responsible for naming and promoting the group in its early days, he hired Mick Jagger as the group's vocalist, who brought along guitarist Keith Richards. From 1962 to 1969, he learned to play a number of musical instruments, texturing the Rolling Stones songs with instruments as diverse as marimbas, sitar, dulcimer, and the moog synthesizer. In 1967, he wrote the score to the film "A Degree of Murder," which would be Germany's entry in the Cannes Film Festival that year. By 1968, he was desirous to see the Rolling Stones return to their rhythm and blues roots, and the bands efforts in that direction produced the album "Beggar's Banquet." By early 1969, he had become disillusioned with the band, and bitter about the direction that his band had gone. He had also become distrustful of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, and had begun withdrawing from recording sessions. In June of 1969, it was announced that Brian had left the band. On July 3, 1969, he was found at the bottom of his swimming pool, drowned, at the age of 27. (bio by: Eric Hemphill)
