Happy 72nd birthday Brian! You’ve been a huge part of my life since I first got into the Stones last June, and I believe that without you, they would never have gotten where they did. You brought so much to the band through your incredible abilities on multiple instruments. You added an essential hint of darkness to Paint it Black with your sitar, turned Lady Jane into an Elizabethan masterpiece with your dulcimer, added a touch of beauty to Ruby Tuesday with your piano and recorder and made No Expectations absolutely breathtaking with your slide guitar. Thank you for everything you brought to the The Rolling Stones and the world of music. We love you and miss you still after nearly forty-five years.
