Sunday Morning Blues: July 3rd, 2016

July 3rd is the day before our country’s birthday, but it was also a dark day in Classic Rock.

Brian Jones, one of the founders of the Rolling Stones and one who used to bill himself as a blues act named Elmo Lewis, passed away after drowning in his swimming pool outside of London in 1969.

It was Jones’ genius on multiple instruments that enlivened many a Stones hit and his decline from drug abuse and death was one of rock’s most tragic.

Equally tragic was the loss of Jim Morrison, who perished in Paris in 1971 on July 3rd.

The Doors actually performed many blues songs during their career; we handpicked three of the best to highlight this brilliant lyricist, songwriter and singer.
