John B Appleby

The late author, John Appleby, self published the excellent book "38 Priory Street and all that jazz" which we consider to be an excellent factual account of the music scene in Cheltenham in the 50's and early 60's, the book contains lots of references to Brian Jones. Unfortunately the book is out of print and extremely rare, contact with the original printers has been unsuccessful and we are currently trying to trace relatives' of Mr Appleby in the Gloucester and surrounding area.

Graham Ride

We are extremely grateful to Graham Ride in allowing us to reproduce a chapter from his excellent publication 'Foundation Stone'. Graham was a personal friend of Brian Jones and his recall of his time in Brian's company is incredible. We thought that the chapter reproduced here gave an evocative perception of Brian's thoughts and attitude towards jazz and the blues at that very early stage in his career. Although Graham provided the text for us, we added the links to the snatches of music that they were both listening to, in that small flat in Selkirk House in the early 60's.
