at Cotchford Farm

in England, 1969.

Ethan Russell:

“I found myself driving through the green hills of Sussex to visit Brian Jones in his new house. With some fanfare, Brian had just bought the country home of A. A. Milne, the creator of Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh. To me it seemed somehow perfect that this blond-haired rock and roller should have inherited the house of Pooh. For Brian, with his blond pageboy haircut, looked like a fully-grown Christopher Robin…..This was sacrilegious of course but that’s what he was — we were — doing, wasn’t it? He was a Rolling Stone doing Rolling Stone things!”
