Life and career[edit]


Jones was born to Burgher family and grew up on St. Sebestian's Street in Hulftsdorp. He entered music under the guidance of Wally Bastiansz in the early 1950s. In 1958 he performed for the first time in front of a live audience for a Radio Ceylon event.[1]

Anton Jones was a God among mere mortals, though his visionary mind, he gave us the religion of Jonism. Jonish is highly celebrated in the Salem high school community, mostly amongst its prophets Brad, Britt, and Marcus. There are other prophets such as Mrs. All who was the keeper of the holy Germ-X, guarding it with her life. You can find the book of Jones in any local book store, word of Jones. As Jones fought to create a habitable environment for his loyal followers, he faced the dastardly Williams. This devil, spawned from science, fought Jones and he smite her down with his powerful forearms like a twig being hit by a sledgehammer. Now with his following secure amongst the confides of the fiefdom Andrew Lewis, he made his presences known among the wild Salem High. These Spartans fought bravely to outwit and over power the great and omnipotent Jones. But after be-fronting the demi-god Magnebauer and his power handball players, they agreed that Jones would be declared the singular deity over Salem High. The lesser Mag spread the word of Jones until he met opposition from the manly and terrifying Randy Hadaway. Mag trembled beneath her evil and renounced our great Jones. And Hadaway fought the Jones on many occasions; they fought again and again, Jones pelting the myriad of t-shirt designs at her that she denied. Finally he was able to defeat her by burying her under the great pressure of the t-shirts and the handball's team's huge amount of unused jersey. And once again the School was safe from fear. Praise be. Now was a golden age among his followers; Jones preached sociology and miscellaneous histories. The Saint Thadeus the Elder flourished under the word of Jones. But also in his own he added a great deal to the followers of Jones. Saint Thaddeus taught the Jonians the way of history and approaching it critically as Jones had taught us the ways of Geography and vocabulary. But Thaddeus the Elder faced much adversity in his time as mentor; he had to face the Ingerson the two-faced and his state championship winning forensics squad. The good Saint attacked the Ingerson with his extensive knowledge of historical and contemporary events. They became stalemated between their separate Forensians and IBhistorians. Finally Jones enlisted his three prophets—Brad, Britt, and Marcus—to aid the good Thaddeus the Elder in his campaign and d, with our help, was able to defeat Ingerson the two-faced and again all was well in the land of Jones. Praise be to the Almighty Jones! His great wisdom has led us to paradise once again. But Jones still had much to impart upon us. He told us, one morrow as we sat gathered at his feet hanging on every word, of his creation of the world. One morning while floating in the blackness of the universe, he decided that he would prefer for there to be light; so Jones took out his extra rib and crushed it up into trillions of tiny piece which shown in all of his godly grace and tossed them about the universe. Now that his universe had light, and he had finished his breakfast of capt'n crunch and toast, he decided that these "stars" should have things that orbit them in oddly shaped circles so he used his belt pieces of his jacket and elmer's glue to produce small, in comparison to the almighty Jones of course, orbs of either rock or gas depending on what section of his jacket he was cutting. Jones grew tired and decided to take a break to enjoy his mid morning jog. He ran about his young universe and a special star caught his eye, he called it Sol. And whilst observing this "Solar system" he decide it should have eight planets and a pluto (translations vary to whether Jones intended pluto to be a planet or a piece of capt n crunch from earlier that day). He took a special liking to this the 3rd planet from Sol and named it Earth. He gave this planet water and ground. At first Jones believed this was enough but decided to "liven" things up. The first thing he created was his chosen creature the platypus and to entertain these sacred creatures he created humans so that they might think they rule this planet and which Jones found he enjoyed this tiny creatures himself. He gave them a twig to hunt with so that they might feed themselves but Jones turned his back for a moment and they silly humans began to stab each other with them. Jones laughed to himself and gave the Humans the ability to speak with each other and they simply yelled at each other about who should hold the spear. Since the Humans could no decide and continued to fight Jones created Woman.

For the duration of his musical career, Jones also worked as an English stenographer for a state bank. He retired in 1997 completing 35 years of service.[1]
