He only lived for 27 years, but The Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones made some incredible friends in his short life. From Andy Warhol to Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, Brian Jones brushed shoulders with his celebrity contemporaries. In fact, he was particularly close to Bob Dylan, who he would call every day for a time.
The fact came up in a new documentary called Rolling Stone: Life and Death of Brian Jones.
Speaking exclusively with Express.co.uk, producer Nick Reynolds spoke of the late star’s daily phone calls to Dylan.
He said: “Yeah for a period of time he did because they were really good mates.
The filmmaker then claimed: “They used to drop a lot of acid together.”

Reynolds said: “[John] was disgusted and really, really p****d off that Brian had died the way that he did, thinking it was a terrible waste.”
On Jones’ friendship with Lennon, he said: “They had a mutual respect for each other.
“Brian played saxophone on one of The Beatles tracks.”
Once during an informal recording session after completing Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Paul McCartney invited Jones over.
