The Stone Roses Reuniting, Planning World Tour
members were brought back together at bassist Mani's mother's funeral earlier this year and they feel the time is right to get back together.
For a nice article on the reunion and press conference always turn to the BBC: "The Stone Roses to reunite for tour"
Last year, I wrote an Artist Spotlight on one of my favorite 100 artists of all time (I really don't have the list put together, but it's safe to say the Stone Roses are on it). Click here for a read: Artist Spotlight: The Resurrection And The Second Coming.
For a band that exploded on to the scene, initiate the whole Brit-pop movement for the next decade, waited forever to release a lukewarm follow up and then disintegrate as quickly as they did, I'm kind of excited for these guys. Of course "the money" was probably a main reason (that's how these reunions go) but when the Stone Roses were on, they were unbelievably good. Here's to a second chance and making it through 2012 without any major incidents (like breaking up before they hit America!!!). Surprise me. Come to Indianapolis Stone Roses!
In the meantime, enjoy a few of my favorites from the band below:
