They are the resurrection: Stone Roses on course for a comeback
The amount of rubbish comebacks the great British public have been asked to stomach recently, it's about time a genuinely exciting one came round - and here it is. The Stone Roses are the latest (and greatest) band to announce that they will be on course for a 2009 reunion.
Bassist Mani, has spoken to the press on behalf of himself, drummer Reni and guitarist John Squire to confirm that they are up for a reunion at some point in 2009. In the coming months, they'll be doing their damndest to convince frontman Ian Brown to jump on the wagon too. Despite the oft dodgy singing, it wouldn't be the same without him.
"Me, John and Reni are up for doing it and Ian just needs some working on. Next year is the 20th anniversary of the first album. It’s the ideal time to do it. It’s something I would love to do before we are all fat and bald. Start the campaign," Mani told The Sun.
The godfathers of of Madchester rock last performed together in 1996, but split soon after due to the departure of guitarist John Squire, and a durge of drug fuelled rows. The last 13 years have seen a long running feud between Ian Brown and Squire, who haven't spoken since the split.
Although Brown is said to be warming to the idea of a reunion, whether the frost will really thaw remains to be seen (comeback rumours have been thawrted in the past). However a cash/musical genius-cow like the Stone Roses is surely deserving of one last milk. What do you think, will it happen?
