we will miss you brian!

I loved him deeply. He was so much more than people ever knew or saw. (…) All he ever wanted was the simple love and comfort of a home and family, but like an old dog, he had been kicked so long and so hard all of that was buried underneath years of hurt and resentment.” - Suki Potier

When I met Brian Jones I liked him quite a lot. He was a good fellow, you know. I got to know him very well, I think, and I felt very close to him; you know how it is with some people, you feel for them, feel near them. (…) He was very nice and sincere and sensitive, and we must remember that’s what he was.” - George Harrison

I loved him a lot. He was very, very important to me. (…) I hung out with him quite a lot, and I’ve missed him terribly, and I always felt than when he finally did collapse, that the Stones were a very different group.” - Pete Townshend

He was very curious, he wanted to know everything. He would call me from the States, ask what I was wearing, was I sleeping was on the right side or left side, on the belly or back… (…) And he was very gentle, he’d tell me how beautiful I looked, like this.. He was asking also about my family, my parents, if I was happy, what I did, what did I study.” - Zouzou

I was surprised when he died, he was actually getting his house together. He’d be showing me round there and he’d be painting all these walls.” - Charlie Watts

We were so happy. When Brian bought the farmhouse he said he wanted to live there the rest of his life. And he did. But it was too short. (…) One of the hardest things was that when Brian died he was my boyfriend – but suddenly he belonged to another world and other people – and I couldn’t really cope with that.” - Anna Wohlin

Happy birthday Brian, I wish you could have celebrated your 74th birthday with your nearest and dearest, with your children and grandchildren. Imagine you being a grandpa! I’m sure you would have many stories to tell them, and my heart hurts because you never got, nor will ever get, the chance to do that. I wish you were still alive. I hope you are at peace.

Time for School

Because I can’t let @heidipoo-xox captain this ship alone. <3


Brock wasn’t sure what time it was, but he knew it was entirely too early for a small body to be bouncing on their bed, chanting, “Time to wake up! Time to wake up!”

“Brock, your daughter is awake.” Came the muffled response from the lump next to him.

“Why is she always my daughter in the morning?” He grumbled as he turned onto his back and gazed up at his daughter.

Today In Beatles History

September 19, 1934

On this day Beatles manager Brian Samuel Epstein was born in Liverpool, Lancashire, England to parents Harry and Queenie.

Besides the Fab Four, Epstein also managed several acts such as Cilla Black, Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas, Gerry and the Pacemakers and The Fourmost.

Brian would’ve turned 80 had he not overdosed on sleeping pills in 1967. The manager was, finally, recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has had a comic book-like-book written of him, and has two films in production based on his life. Hopefully future generations of Beatles fans will not fail to recognize the hard work Brian did to get the band to, as they said, “the toppermost of the poppermost”.

We miss you, Brian Epstein

ENFP and INTJ drunk moment #2
  • *laying in bed watching The Breakfast Club while really, really drunk*
  • ENFP: *pulls out laptop to look up a certain trivia fact from the movie*
  • INTJ: *glances over* *notices the 40 tabs open on chrome*
  • INTJ: *face palms and whines* "Whyyyy. Why so many tabs??" *moaning and unintelligible words*
  • "It makes no sense. Just close them. Put them in bookmarks or folders. There is no organization. Whyyyyy"
  • *more moaning*
  • ENFP: "Oh stop it, this isn't the first time you've seen them. Now shhhh and watch the movie. We have to go back now because you missed Brian being high which is quite honestly a highlight of the movie."
  • Like last ENFP INTJ drunk moments, INTJ remembers none of this

Lewis Brian Hopkins Jones
February 28th, 1942 - July 3rd, 1969

Happy 72nd birthday Brian! You’ve been a huge part of my life since I first got into the Stones last June, and I believe that without you, they would never have gotten where they did. You brought so much to the band through your incredible abilities on multiple instruments. You added an essential hint of darkness to Paint it Black with your sitar, turned Lady Jane into an Elizabethan masterpiece with your dulcimer, added a touch of beauty to Ruby Tuesday with your piano and recorder and made No Expectations absolutely breathtaking with your slide guitar. Thank you for everything you brought to the The Rolling Stones and the world of music. We love you and miss you still after nearly forty-five years.
