Brian Jones played the guitar, but he also played the harmonica, oboe, organ, dulcimer, mellotron, recorder, sitar, marimba, saxophone, percussions, keyboard and several brass and woodwind instruments.
Cut from a discarded drum cymbal, this piece represents the front plate of a harmonica. Although not the only instrument in Brian’s repertoire, it is symbolic of the way he breathed life into the Rolling Stones' music. He brought an undeniable richness and depth that set the Rolling Stones apart from all other Rock’n Roll bands of the day. Brian was also known for his strong sense of style and fashion. We have created a tie clip to add flare and a little edge to this conservative piece of clothing.
I invite you to take a listen to the following songs. Listen/watch for Brian’s parts. You'll notice, as we did, that Brian's unique contribution haunts each track and lingers in the subconscious, creating an intimate connection between the artist and the listener. Once you hear and identify the part as his, you cannot unhear it. It pulls at you during each subsequent listen. His legacy remains long after his death.
