Brian Knight slide guitarist, founding member of The Rolling Stones, a respected figure in British blues history

Brian Knight, the influential vocalist, slide guitarist, harmonica player and founding member of The Rolling Stones was one of the most respected and important figures in British blues history. Brian Knight met Brian Jones on West London's blues circuit. Jones revealed that he was forming a band, proposed that Knight should sing. Geoff Bradford joined the line-up on guitar along with pianist Ian Stewart, bassist Dick Taylor (later of The Pretty Things) and a succession of drummers. It was the beginning of The Rolling Stones. Jones and Knight could not agree on which musical direction to take; Knight wanted to pursue the Muddy Waters school of blues, while Brian Jones favoured Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry styles. Brian Knight left, and Mick Jagger and Keith Richards later teamed up with Brian Jones, and the rest is history.
Brian Knight formed a new band, Blues By Six with Charlie Watts on drums. They gained prestigious London residencies at the Marquee and 100 Club, often supported by 'The Rollin' Stones Group'. In 1966, exhausted from being constantly on tour, Brian Knight quit making music until the early 70's. Brian, itching to play again, was reunited with Geoff Bradford in a band simply called The Bradford - Knight Blues Band. As a blues star, Brian continued to shine, and from the 70's - 90's he performed with Fairport Convention's Bruce Rowland, Ian Stewart (the sixth Stone), Charlie Watts, Peter Green, Dana Gillespie, Paul Jones, Ronnie Lane, Georgie Fame, Zoot Money, Chris Farlowe, Micky Moody - the list is endless.

Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones gave his approval of the project with an exclusive signature: '...Good to hear the fruits of Brian's total artistic control on this album. The result is uninterfered-with back-to-the-roots blues. Brian is one of the greatest guitar specialists. The track with Charlie and Stu brought back memories. Brian was playing with the Stones boys when I was still with my first band,
