Today: It has been announced that the ‘mysterious’ death of Rolling Stone Brian Jones is to be the subject of an inquest.
Jones’ body is to be exhumed for thorough post-mortem tests on the grounds that his cause of death was not properly verified at the time of his death.
A founding member of The Rolling Stones, Jones is said to have drowned in 1969, during a midnight swim at his mansion in Hartfield, East Sussex.
Many people, including his former girlfriend Anna Wohlin, claim that Jones was murdered.
Evidence will be presented to the Attorney-General in the coming months.
In the meantime, our YouTube video choice of the day is this seven-minute live Rolling Stones performance from the 1964 NME Pollwinners Awards, held at the Empire Pool, Wembley.
The group are in exhuberant form in this clip, playing three songs to a baying crowd.
