    Default Stone Roses Reunion - 2011 edition

    Will it actually happen this time?

    http://www.nme.com/news/the-stone-roses/55962

    The Stone Roses are finally set to reunite this year according to one newspaper report.

    The Sun reports that singer Ian Brown and guitarist John Squire have "buried the hatched", paving the way for a comeback later in the year.

    The newspaper claims that the pair made up at the funeral of bassist Mani's mother recently.

    A source is quoted as saying: "It was an emotional reunion. There were no harsh words. It was a heartwarming breaking of bread. They had a lot to catch up on and have been in regular contact since."

    A "megabucks reunion" is supposedly on the cards now, if the trio can convince drummer Reni to get on board.

    Although rumours of the Manchester baggy legends reuniting have cropped up many times over the years, Brown and Squire have always quashed them. Mani, meanwhile, has spoken positively about wanting to reunite.

    The Stone Roses split in 1996 after releasing two albums. Brown has pursued a solo career since, while Squire moved into painting after forming The Seahorses and releasing solo material. Mani currently plays in Primal Scream.

    But efffffff yes that'd be amazing. Of course, it might be another Blur & Pulp deal.... EBA. Everywhere But America.

    aaand there goes that.

    New rumours about The Stone Roses possibly reforming in 2011 have been quashed by bassist Mani.

    This morning (April 7) a UK tabloid newspaper claimed that the band, who split in 1996, were set to get back together for gigs this year.

    The report was based on singer Ian Brown and John Squire recently meeting again for what is believed to be the first time since the split. Now Mani has told NME that reports of a band reunion are false.

    "I'm disgusted that my personal grief has been invaded and hijacked by these nonsensical stories," he said, referring to the fact that Brown and Squire met up at his mother's funeral.

    He added: "Two old friends meeting up after 15 years to pay their respects to my mother does not constitute the reformation of The Stone Roses. Please fuck off and leave it alone. It isn't true and isn't happening."

    The band released two albums in their career. Brown has pursued a solo career since, while Squire moved into painting after forming The Seahorses and releasing solo material. Mani currently plays in Primal Scream.

    NME reporting on an article from The Sun should have been all you needed to know regarding the validity of this claim.

    Sure wish Ian Brown could sing a lick live... he can't. But if they reform I'd be there just the same- like the rest of us saps.

    Guess we'll wait for the press conference tomorrow.....

    Ian Brown has reportedly confirmed that the much talked about reunion of The Stone Roses is definitely taking place.

    According to The Sun this morning (October 17), magician Dynamo, who is a close friend of Brown, showed the paper's journalist a text message from the singer about the reunion, which said: "We are going to rule the world again. It's happening."

    Rumours of a reunion flared up on Friday (October 14), with a major music publicist refusing to confirm or deny that a planned announcement on Tuesday (October 18) would indeed be declaring the band's return. It follows news breaking last April that singer Ian Brown and guitarist John Squire had met up for what was thought to be the first time since the band's 1996 split.

    The band's former drummer Alan 'Reni' Wren became the first member of the band to break ranks on the reunion rumours on Friday (October 14), contacting NME with a cryptic message that read: "Not before 9T will I wear the hat 4 the Roses again".

    According to the tabloid's report, Elbow's Guy Garvey has also confirmed the reunion, with a source telling the paper: "Guy was talking to friends about how the original line-up had been rehearsing over the summer in Manchester."

    If Friday's rumours are to be believed, plans for The Stone Roses reunion will include a large scale show in Manchester's Heaton Park next summer.

    A couple of things that stand out when reading their official site.

    1. Those shows are stated to be "part of a tour" the way they phrase it makes it seem that these are not the first shows back.

    2. That they will be doing a world tour unlike other British reunions like Blur and so far Pulp.

    Both of these things makes it so Coachella has a real shot at this reunion.

    I don't know what is more shocking - that the stone roses are reuniting, or that the sun was right.

    also, I doubt coachella will get gigs before the uk does. that would be a super anti-climactic comeback.

    I don't see why this is the case, it's all about $$$$ and Coachella kicks off the festival season so it has an advantage there.

    I mean there has been many performers that reunited at Coachella before their home country: Jesus and Mary Chain, Daft Punk, Bauhaus, Portishead, The Verve etc.
