Other Info - After John Squire parting company with The Stone Roses in March 1996, he formed the Seahorses (with Chris Helme, Stuart Fletcher and Andy Watts). After the Seahorses parted company with Andy Watts around the time of their 3rd single 'Love Me And Leave Me' they went through a Spinal Tap-style series of drummers until the seat was finally filled my Mark Heaney. When the Seahorses split in 1999 in the middle of recording their second studio album, John Squire put an advert out in the NME classifieds for his 'Skunk Works Project'.

He ended up working with a band with Simon Tong, Simon Jones (both ex-Verve) and Seahorses latter-day drummer Mark Heaney, sadly this did not work out they went their seperate ways, John Squire leaving to find his voice and his solo career, the others to form the short-lived, The Shining.

John Squire launched his solo career by playing Stone Roses classic tune 'Waterfall' live on the Zoe Ball Xfm show in October 2002. His first two gigs at Glasgow's King Tuts and Liverpool University opened with the instrumental outro of the classic 'I Am The Resurrection', much to the fans' delight. 'Time Changes Everything' was a hit with both his fanbase and the critics (for a change) with the NME calling it his best work since The Stone Roses debut LP (8/10).

His follow-up album 'Marshall's House' took inspiration from the works of Edward Hopper, an American Realist artist. This year also saw John Squire exhibit his artwork for the first time at London's ICA, amongst his works were many of the originals that were used for the Stone Roses record covers.
