Giving Up Rock Icon Jones’ Baby

Coeur d'Alene resident Dawn Young wrote a book about having a baby with a founding member of The Rolling Stones that she gave up for adoption while living in England as a teen. She talked about the online book at her home on Monday. (SR photo: Kathy Plonka)

One of the first things you see after stepping into the house on Sutters Way is a big family photo. The color picture, taken in 1995, shows an attractive group of happy people. As is almost always the case with families, though, the smiles don’t tell the whole story. But now the woman who lives in that contemporary Coeur d’Alene home has filled in some of the blanks. Anyone wondering about the blond, doesn’t-look-like-the-others young man on the right side of the family portrait can read “Not Fade Away,” Dawn Molloy Young’s autobiographical account of being forced to give up her baby as an English teenager in the 1960s. It’s not an unusual story from that era. Except, in this case, the baby’s father was Brian Jones, a founding member of the Rolling Stones/Paul Turner, SR. More here.
