A.A. MILNE (and Brian Jones) 1968

by 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…..” (Above: “Brian Jones Kicking Christopher Robin.” This was sacrilegious of course but that’s what he was — we were — doing, wasn’t it?)


Now I have a boy, and when he was young I couldn’t wait for him to be old enough so I could read him Winnie the Pooh. What a gift.
