Brian Jones, a founding member of the Rolling Stones was found dead in his swimming pool in 1969.  His house outside London had been owned by what famous author?

Answer: A.A. Milne

Here’s the rest of the Rock N’ Roll Diary for today:

  • 1969: The Rolling Stones were hit by personal tragedy when Brian Jones, the band’s former guitarist and a founding member, was found dead in his swimming pool outside London.  Though it was ruled an accidental drowning, some have said there was foul play involved.  He had been with the group since 1962 and quit just a month before.
  • 1973: David Bowie announced to a concert crowd in London that he was retiring from public performance.  He was back onstage within 11 months.
