      Paul Trynka aims to reclaim the reputation of Brian Jones with “Sympathy for the Devil: The Birth of the Rolling Stones and the Death of Brian Jones”. Paul Trynka believes that Brian Jones’s contribution to the band is routinely downplayed by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. Whilst he might be overstating the case on occasion, I came away convinced that without Brian Jones here would have meant no Rolling Stones. He formed the band, named it, inspired his bandmates, and was the undisputed v [...]

      I must admit to being confused. About a year ago, I read Trynka's book on Brian Jones. That one had a picture of Jones wearing a striped shirt playing guitar live, audience behind him. The book that I JUST finished has a picture of Jones's face with the other Stones up at the top. That would be no big deal, but it seems that the two books differ greatly. Am I imagining this??!! If not, the book I just finished was one of the best written biographies of Jones I have ever read, probably only Bill [...]

      i found it worthwhile very little here about the actual music, rather, mostly interesting facts that validate the following:-Brian had a pioneering influence on bringing black r&b into the mainstream, especially muddy waters and howlin wolf-Brian was one of the first to champion blues-based rock and was a standard-bearing musician-Brian was in many ways "devilish", was disassociated from his family for his love of the blues and was addicted in many ways-Mick and Keith are pricks, treated Br [...]

      Clearly no fan of the Glimmer Twins is the author. There isn't a lot new here about the band's treatment of Jones nor of his genius and role in bringing not just the band but the style of blues to the rock scene. But it's an interesting tale if for no other reason than that it's well researched and flows nicely. Spoiler: He dies. In a pool.

    5. Cooper Renner on said:

      Very interesting recasting and re-examination of Jones's life and his importance to the Stones. I'm pretty sure this is the same book as Trynka's Brian Jones and the Making of the Rolling Stones, under a different title, but I may be wrong.

    6. Ruth on said:

      Wow ! Great detail and well written. I have read countless books on The Stones and this is well up at the top. Such and interesting read and well researched. Top marks despite the author's obvious dislike of Mick & Keith.
