: 30 years ago today Brian died. It just dosen't seem possible that it could be that long. I can remember seeing Brian on TV in the sixties playing guitar, sitar and recorder and vibes (to name a few) and thinking how cool he was to play these instruments. But truth is, his life was not cool. His life was too short and filled with problems, but in those 27 short years he made many of us fans smile. But no, life is not cool when it ends so tragically and for no good reason. I know you are at peace now Brian and that is cool. Many of us old Stones fans miss you, too bad the newer Stones fans never got to know you or understand how important you were to the band. You were the soul of the Stones, no question and the Stones did lose something that they never have been able to replace since you died.

That's my favorite Stones-era (with Brian)... :((( I'll pay my tribute and respects by dressing like Marianne Faithfull tomorrow at the Mods & Rockers bash at the Egyptian Theatre! YAY!!! :D :D :D Swinging Sixties London-style, of course!!! :D :D :D
