July 3, 1969: Brian Jones dies in the early morning hours of July 3rd, 1969, less than a month following his exit from the band.

Keith and Mick on the Olympia shows:
Keith: “From my point of view, the more Mick is willing to go out on a limb and try a different song, that’s a sign of confidence in the band and I encourage it all the way. I can see where there is room yet for the Stones to expand into some very interesting music rather than just be the Stones. We’ve all got to feel that – otherwise it would be close-the-shop time.”
Mick: “Shine a Light was one of the unusual songs we picked, which is a song from Exile. We had never done that before, being something that was just hidden. And I was really surprised when we first did it – that people knew it. The audience starts singing along, and I was like Uh.”
