TODAY IN ROLLING STONES’ HISTORY: June 8

June 8, 1969: Mick, Keith and Charlie visit Brian at Cotchford Farm, his home in Surrey, to inform him he has to leave the group. Later on they issue a press statement that Brian Jones is leaving the Rolling Stones. Next day Brian announces “I no longer see eye-to-eye with the others over the discs we are cutting… I want to play my kind of music, which is no longer the Stones music. The music Mick and Keith have been writing has progressed at a tangent, as far as my own taste is concerned.”

June 8, 1979: Keith signs a declaration to the court for the Toronto appeal proceedings.
“Ever since my arrest in February 1977 in this case, I was grimly determined to change my life and abstain from any drug use. My whole experience in this case and, in particular, the Order of his Honor Judge Graburn have afforded me the opportunity to give positive direction and effect on my life and future career. It was a rewarding experience for me also to have been given an opportunity to assist in my small measure the blind people of Canada. I can truthfully say that the prospect of my ever using drugs again in the future is totally alien to my thinking. My experience has also had an important effect not only on my happiness, but on my happiness at home in which my young son is brought up.”
