Dec. 18, 1966: On the day of Keith’s 23rd birthday, Tara Browne, heir to the Guinness fortune (and Brian Jones’ closest friend, which threw Brian into an irreconcilable depression), was killed when driving at high speed in his car, which collided with a parked lorry in South Kensington, London. Tara’s death was immortalized in the Beatles song ‘A Day In The Life’ after John Lennon read a report on the coroner’s verdict into Browne’s death. Keith and Anita’s third child Tara Jo Jo Gunne (born in Switzerland on March 26, 1976), was named after him, but he died when he was only 10 weeks old.
