Brian Jones - 'murdered' or 'death by misadventure?'

Brian Jones, the founding member of The Rolling Stones, was found dead in his swimming pool on July 2, 1969. Despite being an excellent swimmer, he was found at the bottom of the pool. He had been drinking, and doing drugs (of course).

A few months before, he was canned from the very group he had formed (by placing an ad in a magazine for like-minded musicians) and had named. So he could have been depressed enough to commit suicide. Maybe.

The day before, he had argued with a building contractor who was living above his garage because a beam in his kitchen had collapsed and nearly brained his girlfriend. Many think this contractor murdered Jones.

Brian Jones was revered enough to have Jim Morrison write a poem about him after he died; the Beatles thought enough of him to have him guest on their song "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)" (Jones played sax). Had Jones lived, John Lennon was going to do music with him after he left the Beatles.

What do you think ultimately happened to Brian Jones?

Someone on their death bed in the past 10 years admitted that Jones was murdered... Sorry, I don't know any more details.

You can see this in the film Stoned. It's out on DVD.
