When I was a teen I worshiped Brian Jones. So much so that it almost killed me (did my best to emulate him after reading Up and Down With the Stones).
Was just doing a little research to post some clips in another thread and learned something I never knew. In Ruby Tuesday he's playing a recorder, not a flute.
In my early days of musicianship a friend of mine had me listen to Ruby Tuesday and study (with my ears) the flute part. He said that's what playing with emotion was all about. I still agree.
Technically, Brian Jones wasn't much to talk about, but I think as far as writing and expressing himself on an instrument he was brilliant. And underated. Anyhow, for those who never listened closely, do yourself a favor and listen closely to what he did in this played out song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DVCgKsqn30
and I just found this rare gem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TnTx0vscE0
Was going to write and post more, but got caught up in something else. Ya'll can do the rest of the talking and posting.
