"The current owners are Alastair and Harriet Johns," he said.
"We sold the famous blue swimming pool tiles for them through the fan club.
"From that we raised £10,000 for the blue plaque, the bronze bust in Beechwood Place, a new bench opposite his grave and two silver cups for his schools – Dean Close and the Grammar School.
"We did this to improve the memory of Brian Jones in Cheltenham for visitors from around the world."
Born in Cheltenham, Jones first lived with his parents at 17 Eldorado Road, moving to a home in Up Hatherley in 1950.
He moved out into flats around Cheltenham in 1960 before heading to London to form the Rolling Stones in 1962.
Jones struggled with substance abuse during his lifetime and eventually fell out with his band mates, leaving the group in the months before his death.
