Other Info - After finally closing the book on The Stone Roses, shortly after their darkest hour at the Reading Festival of 1996 Ian Brown considered selling Roses bootlegs (and even hinted at an interest in horticulture).



Ex-Stone Roses front man, Ian Brown has just completed his fourth studio album 'Solarized' which was released September 2004. Brown also recently played his first full Roses set-list in nearly a decade at the Claremont Landscape Gardens, Esher, Surrey.
