Prince of Whales Pub Portland St. in Cheltenham. One of Brian's and his friends waterholes.

Selkirk house in Cheltenham, where Brian lived together with two friends in 1961. They lived on the first floor, Brian's bedroom behind the window on the right.
PS! I was invited there by the present owner of this house when I was there so I have walked the steps to the first floor as well as the floors !

 

 

The Gaumont Cinema Cheltenham ( now called the Odeon ) where Rolling Stones played in February 1964 and September 1965

The Haywaggon Pub in Heartfield, where Brian used to go on his Vespa.

No 56 Bath Road, Cheltenham Brian lived on the top floor behind the right hand top window in a small bed sitter.

 

Cothford Farm, February 28, 2005 Brianīs birthday.. Brianīs bedroom was on the first floor behind the two left windows. Brianīs music room was on the ground floor in the right hand wing building.  The author Mr A A Milne who wrote the stories about Winnie the Poh once owned this house. The room on the first floor above Brians music room was where Mr Milne had his study and where he wrote the stories

The Brian Jones Fan Club  www.brianjonesfanclub.com

The editor is Mr Trevor Hobley and the mailing address to the club is:

The Brian Jones Fan Club

48c Newtown Road

Bedworth

Warwickshire

England

CV128QS

 The Fan Club is very active and must not be mixed with the other Brian Jones Fan Club, Spirit.

One Fan Club magazine, Aftermath  is issued four times a year and the latest issue was a Joujouka Special.

Ms Pat Andrews ( Brianīs ex girlfriend and mother to one son Mark ) is also active and very supporting as well as Brians old friend since the Cheltenham teenage days Mr Dick Hattrell.They both moved up to London from Cheltenham after that Brian moved to London for good Saturday March 17th, 1962. At that time Brian had met Alexis Korner as he had played in Cheltenham two times with his band Blues Incorporated. Brian and Alexis became very close friends and Brian used to sleep on the floor under the kitchen table at Alexis place when he visited London before he moved there.The Fan Club are having meetings every year in Cheltenham to both celebrate and remember Brian, first in February because of Brianīs birthday February 28th. And then one in July around the 3rd as this date is the official day of his death.
Besides this I can also recommend the following books about Brian:

 Brian Jones by Alan Clayson.

 Foundation Stone by Graham Ride ( Graham lived with Brian in Cheltenham for nine months )

 Death of a Rolling Stone by Mandy Aftel

 Brian Jones, The last decadent by Jeremy Reed

 Then there is a book with the name, The Murder of Brian Jones by Anna Wohlin. Her story is very personal but it could be interesting to read her story of what happend at Cothford Farm that hot night between July 2 -3, 1969.

 There are two more books, Who Killed Christopher Robin and Golden Stone. The last book I have been told is of very little use. The first one Who Killed Christopher Robin should be a good book but I have not yet been able to find it.

 I can also inform you that the Fan Club is working and has put a lot of effort, and with sucsess, to have the whole Police investigation reopend. It looks today that the case will be opend up and that all documents in the investigation that was made in a hurry in 1969 will be gone through. This is VERY intresting because there are many questionmarks in this dark story. Personally I do not think that the film Stoned will answer any of those questionmarks.

We just have to wait and see.

If you have any qustions and would like to know more about Brian or anything connected to him or if you have more interesting facts in this case please contact me via the NSV web site.

 Rock On Folks and remember whenever you listen to a Rolling Stones song do as it says on the inner sleve to Let it Bleed :
THIS MUSIC SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD !!!!
