The Rolling Stones Drug Freak Out At Bar Revealed


In former The Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman’s new documentary The Quiet One, he discussed his relationship with ex-bandmates Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and the late Brian Jones. He discussed Jones freaking out on LSD at a club. A story about Mick Jagger being disrespected over money at a club recently surfaced.

“I was really sad when Brian started to fall to bits, basically. We’d be in L.A. and we’d go out to the clubs, and he’d be on LSD and he’d be getting out the limo and going, ‘Oh look, there’s snakes all over the ground! The ceiling’s on fire!’ I just used to let him get on with it, but he would go off on those tangents a lot.”

Jones died shortly after his exit from The Rolling Stones, passing away on July 3, 1969, as one of the first members of the 27 club, which later included Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain.

Twin Cities wrote in a review, “Most of the film deals, if only glancingly, with his time with the Stones, jumping from the death of the band’s original leader Brian Jones to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards’ famous feuds, to his bandmates’ drug use, his own sex addiction, the demands of touring, fame and the controversial 1969 performance at the Altamont Speedway in California, during which an audience member was fatally stabbed.

It’s all very eventful, to be sure, but there is little insight offered up into any kind of larger meaning, whether psychological, musical or sociological.”

John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono recently made a stunning revelation about Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
