    Default Stone Roses to reform

    IMHO some things are better left in the past....


    Madchester's finest The Stone Roses are re-forming for a summer tour.

    At least 21 gigs have been planned for the UK and there are talks of a US date – possibly the Coachella Festival in California. The gigs will coincide with the re-release of the band’s self-titled debut album.

    Singer Ian Brown, who has a solo career, was the only one not sure about re-forming. But he was persuaded by guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and drummer Reni. A source said: “It’s taken a lot of time to get Ian to agree but he’s finally signed on the dotted line.

    “The rest of the band were really up for it, especially when they realised the amount of money on the table.” Squire, who designed the album’s iconic cover, quit in 1996 amid rows with Ian. The pair are rumoured never to have spoken since.

    Reni left the year before and Mani plays bass for Primal Scream, who he joined in 1996.

    Last year Mani said he would love to do a reunion “before we are all fat and bald”.

    If this happens I will weep tears of overwhelming joy and fly to England to witness what could potentially be a trainwreck.

    I saw Mani in person tonight. It was a sign.

    PS If this happens I fucking called the 20 years later thing. If it doesn't happen, I never said anything about the Stone Roses ever reforming.

    I was lucky enough to see The Stone Roses live, and they were awsome!!!!
    I saw them at the Hollywood Paladium, I think it was 1995 or 96. I can't realy remember the year, but I do remember their performance. WoW!

    They were ok at best, shockingly bad at worst (live, that is). I'd advise listening to them on your mp3 player whilst at the gig for an overall less hope destroying experience.

    Saying that, i'll still go on the off chance that Ian can now hold a note live.

    obviously it goes without saying that this would put Saturday way way over the top...

    I saw them two months after Reni left, and they were just alright. Robbie Maddix was a good drummer, but Reni was truly amazing.

    I'd love to believe this was true, if not solely for the chance to see Reni and Mani play together. But I'm dubious. I'm expecting to see a terse "Fuck that shit" statement from King Monkey by the end of the day.

    I have heard absolute horror stories of how bad Ian B is live. This won't happen for 2 reasons:
    1. If they decided to try and reunite now, they really only have a month to try and get in shape for it. I doubt they really do.
    2. I don't think GV wants a trainwreck of a performance in the same way the Happy Mondays were.

    Maybe some Euro Shows but I think the time line has over for them to do Coachella.. No way in hell they will be ready in a month.

    EDIT:
    According to this lurker they have be rehearsing for weeks now.
    I am still unsure simply because of Ian Brown.

    A 21 date tour has also been pencilled in, but I do not know the specifics.

    Greetings from England.

    Sorry I posted that and then hit the sack,I know some United lads that know Mani,he's a season ticket holder...

    As I said at the beginning, personally I think trying to create the past is a bad thing ..and they were never much good even back in the day (live that is) it was more the vibe of the day. I know quite a few that were at Spike Island and even those lads say that the music that day was poor it was the event that excelled.
    But hey it would be fun to kick the Elephantstone.

    Dude, I was at this show and I honestly don't know how you have such a glowing memory of it. Ian Brown was horrible. He was so flat during 10 Story Love Song I could barely stand it. Squire played fine but overall the band were dragging and the little acoustic get together they did at center stage for a few songs did not work either.

    But really- Ian was bad bad bad that night and the band mediocre. Manny was so pissed at the end of the show he slammed his bass down and walked off. And it wasn't an "I'm a rock star slamming my guitar on the ground!" it was "Fark this, I'm outta here!" move.

    Note that the above is difficult for me to write. I love the first album so much. It's still in my rotation to this day. But live? No. And I recently saw a live performance from Brown's solo effort. He relies heavily on effects on his drug addled voice to keep things afloat.
