This book details the silent cry of a father s struggle, who tried to obtain justice in a woman s world. She did not want Brian to see or establish a relationship with his son. He did not know Brian, and Brian did not know him. She only wanted monetary support. The name Kamon means a peaceful place and was God s answer to Brian s cry to his heavenly Father for his son, and his son crying out for his father s love. As you finish reading this book, ask yourself, who is crying for the children; can anyone hear the cry of the children? Brian hears the cries of the children, who desire to know, if you will, the other half of their 23 chromosomes. Brian Jones is a father and mentor for other children. He has a Bachelors of Science in Business Management, and is currently working on his Masters Degree."
Brian Jones, the legend and icon, is familiar to generations of rock fans, but the reality of his life has always remaned mysterious. Granted godlike status alongside giants like Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin, Jones was more than the Stones' ill-fated pretty boy. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the swingin' sixties, Alan Clayson's biography reveals an extremely talented musician and a surprisingly driven man whose creative energies propelled him to fame even as they prepared him for an early drink and drug-feuelled demise. Clayson interviewed many of Jones's family and contemporaries for this in-depth portrait. Clayson examines the many spheres of Brian Jones' life, from assessing his contributions in the crucial early years of The Rolling Stones to the rumors that Jones was murdered by a bodyguard.
Brian Jones, multi-instrumentalist, visionary and the 'golden boy of the '60s', was, at the age of 27, the first rock casualty of his generation. A strange, somewhat impenetrable character, Brian Jones was a founding member and guiding spirit of The Rolling Stones. Adored and misunderstood in equal measure, Jones was perhaps the most creatively ambitious cultural force of his time, an artist whose commitment to the experimental and exotic remains profoundly influential. Always unconventional, Jones's voracious appetite for life's extremes led to unparalleled debauchery, drug and alcohol fuelled paranoia, and ultimately personal ruin. 27: Brian Jones is the third in a series of exclusive music ebooks, an ambitious project examining the perils of genius, celebrity and excess. Other titles in the series include 27: Amy Winehouse, 27: Jimi Hendrix, 27: Jim Morrison and 27: Kurt Cobain.

The untold life and mysterious death of a rock legend
Author: Laura Jackson
Publisher: Hachette UK
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In this definitive biography of Brian Jones, Laura Jackson - the first to insist that Jones was murdered and the first to identify his killer - rejects the stereotype of a narcissistic rock star who was doomed to self-destruct. Instead, she spoke to the people who knew him best: his family and friends, girlfriends and confidantes, the musicians and friends who lived and worked with him right up until his death in 1969. Jones emerges as a man of immense talent, energy and humour, but crippled by insecurities and shyness - a portrayal greatly at odds with the sordid rumours that plagued him throughout his life, which continue to this day. Jackson provides new testimony on the rivalries within the Rolling Stones and the bitter final split, together with telling details from the pathology and coroner's reports, to tell the story behind the headlines and get to the heart of the mysterious death of Brian Jones.
Does hell matter? Pastor Brian Jones wants readers to know the truth. Jones believes that the reason most Christians don’t tell their friends about Jesus has nothing to do with not knowing how—it’s because they don’t think they need to. As Jones writes, the first four years he was a pastor, he didn’t believe in hell himself. Today, he shares his story of discovering the truth that hell exists—and why many Christians are afraid to believe in it. Hell Is Real motivates Christians who have grown complacent in their view of hell. Drawing on the teachings of Jesus, Jones leads readers into a head-on collision with apocalyptic urgency—the all-consuming, inspiring conviction that will overcome readers when they realize that hell is real and they can help save people from going there.
Domitian, Emperor of Rome AD 81-96, has traditionally been portrayed as a tyrant, and his later years on the throne as a `reign of terror'. Brian Jones' biography of the emperor, the first ever in English, offers a more balanced interpretation of the life of Domitian, arguing that his foreign policy was realistic, his economic programme rigorously efficient and his supposed persecution of the early Christians non-existent. Central to an understanding of the emperor's policies, Brian Jones proposes, is his relationship with his court, rather than with the senate. Roamn historians will have to take account of this new biography which in part represents a rehabilitation of Domitian.

This textbook provides an overview of the origin and preservation of carbonate sedimentary rocks. The focus is on limestones and dolostones and the sediments from which they are derived. The approach is general and universal and draws heavily on fundamental discoveries, arresting interpretations, and keystone syntheses that have been developed over the last five decades. The book is designed as a teaching tool for upper level undergraduate classes, a fundamental reference for graduate and research students, and a scholarly source of information for practicing professionals whose expertise lies outside this specialty. The approach is rigorous, with every chapter being designed as a separate lecture on a specific topic that is encased within a larger scheme. The text is profusely illustrated with all colour diagrams and images of rocks, subsurface cores, thin sections, modern sediments, and underwater seascapes.

During the Beat Generation, Morocco saw a flourishing of arts, political change, and visits by distinguished guests from the West. Encounters between the aspects of the mystical/sacred traditions of Morocco’s mixing cultures and emissaries from the West, many who indulged in the newly-opened freedoms and sacred traditions, led variously to works of genius, momentous cross- cultural encounters, and personal fame and ruin. Events of these historical loci – the international zone of Tangier, the musical and healing hills of Joujouka, the turbulent south – have been recorded to some renown by the artistic ambassadors who made of them homes or sites of pilgrimage. Robert Palmer, Jean Genet, Brion Gysin, Paul Bowles, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Allen Ginsburg, William Burroughs – to name a few – have produced works either explicitly or implicitly informed by the energetic field created from the political, artistic, and perhaps mystical upheaval that churned in Morocco from the late 1950’s through the late ‘70s. From Bowles, whose haunting prose captures the dark and magical atmosphere through his novels, to Gysin, whose multi-faceted artistic career bears distinctly Berber and Sufi roots, there is record enough to plunge the Western psyche into deep curiosity about the era. Pilgrims continue to trace the steps of their icons, whose genius is in some ways remains identified with the mystery of Morocco.
"Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty I'm free at Last." In the midst of committing suicide at age forty-four, my mind paraphrased those words, spoken long ago by Martin Luther King, Jr. I've intentionally used the phrase "committed suicide" as opposed to attempted suicide because I succeeded. EMT's and doctors declared me dead, twice, and I remembered "Seeing the Light." That Light definitely came from the Heavens, since it appeared in the distinct shape of a cross-not simply a bright light. For those of you who've never wondered why God chose to put you on this Earth, you're lucky. From a toddler I knew I wasn't among the lucky ones. Life didn't improve over the years, or even decades, and I questioned what I'd done to God to allow life to treat me the way it had. I survived every form of child and domestic abuse imaginable, lived with a family having close ties with the Mafia, worked at the United Nations for a Soviet spy, managed an all-male rock group, and overcame intense experiences with the cult-driven Rolling Stones. What else could God have in mind for me, I asked? His answer came in a way I never imagined, and the answer was truly a miracle.
