Luna, San Sebastian and Brian

We were always playing Luna and Galaxie 500 in the MOJO office, perhaps thanks to Jenny Bulley. Anyway, it made my day to get the news that Sympathy For The Devil has been providing a biographical backdrop for Dean Wareham, as the band travel around the Basque coast for their reunion tour. Thanks, Dean!

 

Here’s the article for Salon. 

Some of his closing words: “Trynka estimates the Brian Jones’ estate collects a mere 20,000 pounds a year in royalties for his children and grandchildren. Considering the millions and millions of dollars that the Stones make — admittedly most of it from later recordings — this seems deeply rotten.”

Sadly, none of that small amount even makes it to his children or grandchildren. In retrospect, I should have made that clearer.
