Remember When? July 1969.

HARD-living rock star Brian Jones was found dead in the swimming pool of his Sussex mansion in July 1969.

Coroner Dr Angus Sommerville decided the former Rolling Stones guitarist had drowned after taking a cocktail of drink and drugs.

But speculation continues to surround Jones's death.

The film Stoned, released in 2005, claimed he was killed by builder Frank Thorogood, said to have made a deathbed confession in 1993.

His body was embalmed, his hair bleached white and he was reportedly buried in a special metal casket paid for by Bob Dylan.
