Film producer Stephen Woolley has blown apart the general belief that
tragic Rolling Stones rocker Brian Jones drowned accidentally, by claiming he
was the victim of a murder.
Woolley was determined to find out the truth about the star's untimely
demise for his new movie STONED - and tracked down a woman who was present at
the scene of the 1969 incident.
Although the 48-year-old film-maker refuses to name her, she is believed
to be JANET LAWSON, a nurse who, curiously, was never interviewed by
The movie, which was screened yesterday (14MAY05) at Cannes Film Festival,
suggests the Rolling Stone's resident handyman FRANK THOROGOOD had a part in
the mysterious death.
Jones was found dead in the swimming pool outside his Sussex, England,
home in 1969 just weeks after his spiralling drug abuse led him to be sacked by
the JUMPIN' JACK FLASH rockers.
