The year The Stones recorded <i>Their Satanic Majesties Request</i> was the year that almost killed them.

In 1967, Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones all were arrested on drug charges and spent a night (or, in Jagger’s case, three nights) in jail. Jones’ longtime girlfriend Anita Pallenberg left him — for Richards. Soon after, Jones — already hobbled by the drug and alcohol abuse that contributed to his death two years later — suffered a nervous breakdown and checked into a medical facility for three weeks.
