Stone Roses Back

Share this post

I’m usually suspect of reunion tours but I’d love to see the Stone Roses in 2012.  More from the Guardian:

Some will say they are doing it for fool’s gold, others will wonder if – as they enter middle age – they just wanna be adored. But fans of theStone Roses will only care about one thing: the band have confirmed they are reuniting, with two gigs planned for next year, followed by a world tour.

They will be playing new songs, but when asked about a new album Ian Brown said: “We hope so, but we said that before didn’t we?” He added: “We’ll ride this until the wheels come off, like we did last time.”

Despite legal wrangling with record companies, fall-outs and vehement assurances they would never get back together, the original lineup – singer Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary “Mani” Mounfield and drummer Alan “Reni” Wren – announced two gigs at Heaton Park in Manchester on 29 and 30 June 2012.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
