Jagger and Richards in a way, as they conspired to remove him as the leader of the band. Brian Jones couldn't accept losing control of the band and went on a downhill spiral from which he never recovered. It was a cut throat business alright

What if Bobby Keys and Jim Horn did a tour as part of the Experience along with Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell. Sounds Rad!
or...

What if Jimi Hendrix got together with Steve Winwood and called the band "Crosstown Traffic."

In the movie "Stoned" it portrayed Brian Jones truly living the life of "Sex, Drugs, and Rock n Roll" only to leave Rock and Roll behind in the sole pursuit of the other two. Just like all dramatisation they bend the facts for dramatic effect. It's like the old chicken and the egg argument: Did Brian spiral out-of-control because he was removed or was he removed because he was spiralling out-of-control?

Brian was the true multi-instrumentalist in the Early Stones. If Mick and Keith, or Brian himself, could keep him from going out of control, perhaps the Stones would have been (even) better in their heyday?

As a fan of Steve Winwood, it is wonderful to think of the Crosstown Traffic jams he and Hendrix could have together!

Because of Brian they were a covers band, he chose the covers etc. When they started writing their own stuff, he lost leadership of the band.

if they were only going to do that, The Rolling Stones would have made as big an impact as the Searchers did

Jimi and winwood making a band called crosstown traffic. What a genius idea. Those two made a deadly combination.

I would sacrifice Keith, ****, I'd sacrifice all of the stones to have Hendrix back. And Mitch Mitchell.

Don't mess with Keef... he will cremate you... and snort you in his coke.

I remember seeing a movie about Jimi and (they) made him seem nervous about the idea of playing with Steve Wniwood. It would had been awesome if they did get together for a album or something.

Brian was brilliant, but like Syd Barratt, eventually couldn`t play due to his substance abuse. The rest of the band really had no choice but to sack him.
Rumours persist that his builder/minder Frank Thorogood was responsible for Brian`s death. I dunno-both men are dead and the true events of that July night in 1969 will probably never be known.
