Brian Jones was fragile and ill-equipped for life in the global spotlight. A musical genius who could play countless instruments, his talent was offset by a weakness for temptation which led him time and again into trouble.

Jones displayed a huge talent for music  - his early obsession with blues and jazz led him to advertise for the bandmates which became the Rolling Stones.  He also was a playboy - fathering six illegitimate children with six different women -  and had an affinity for drugs and alcohol. As one contributor notes, he was the “DNA of the band’s rebellious nature.”

The Disappearance of My Mother

Dir: Beniamino Barrese
