Less than a month after being kicked out of the band he started The Rolling Stones and a week after his death on July 2, 1969, Brian Jones was buried on July 10, 1969 in this lavish silver & bronze metal casket flown in from the United States and paid for by his friend Bob Dylan.
Jones was embalmed, hair bleached white, and was placed in the air-tight metal casket buried 12 feet deep in Cheltenham Cemetery to prevent exhumation by trophy hunters.
