Best Rolling Stones Members


The Top Ten

1 Brian Jones Brian Jones Lewis Brian Hopkin Jones was an English musician, the founder and the original leader of the Rolling Stones.

Brian Jones is the reason why the Stones are together. He influenced all of them by showing them the ropes of the band and the respect he gets is getting kicked out of the band and drowning. Poor guy. Sure he had problems but he was a poor soul. Rest in Peace, Brian. - MontyPython

He was The Heart and soul of the Stones.. At least in the 60's - Beatlesboy9

He started all of it. - zxm

By Steven Van Zandt, Rolling Stone Magazine, "In the beginning, it was Brian Jones' band. He named them. He managed them �" got the gigs and wrote to the paper when they got bad reviews. The attitude and aggressiveness �" they first came from him. And the tradition came from him. He was using the blues pseudonym Elmo Lewis and playing bottleneck guitar. Then, on albums like Aftermath, he was playing all of these other instruments: dulcimer, harpsichord, sitar. He was so inventive and important. If anybody gets left out of the Stones' story, he's the one."

3 Keith Richards Keith Richards Keith Richards is an English musician—primarily a guitarist—singer, songwriter, best-selling memoirist, and founding member of the rock band The Rolling Stones.

The thing I like about Kieth Richards guitar playing is it didn't matter how complex it was it mattered how good it sounded

His playing style is simple, but good! - IronSabbathPriest

6 Mick Taylor Mick Taylor Michael Kevin Taylor is an English musician, best known as a former member of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and the Rolling Stones.

He was the second guitarist at the time when the Stones were at their highest peak. Too bad he's underpaid. Keith Richards is such a greedy bastard sometimes. - IronSabbathPriest

Stones were best with Mick and Keith was toast at the time.

He was and is the best player in the business purposely undererated
