Really looking forward to the gig in February, can't wait. More updates to come after the Christmas period including more articles for my Ancient Articles section.

24th December 2002 Merry Christmas to you all from JSU. Thanks for all the support and visitors in my first few months. All to the best for 2003, lets hope it's a good one.

20th December 2002 Another JS gig cancelled for next year, 3rd Feb 2003 at the Manchester Ritz, but fear not - tickets are valid for the 2nd Feb or a refund is offered.

See the Gigs section for all ammended prices and dates.

8th December 2002 Site update - Not too much new this weekend but I have now updated most of the site with the new look. Remaining pages with 'old style' will be updated soon.

4th December 2002 I've been a bit bored at work today, so I've been messing around with my site's base font face, colour, etc. on the home and news pages. What do you think? does it look better or worse? Let me know and I'll change the rest of my site accordingly. e-mail, forum, or guestbook.

4th December 2002 And here is Q Magazine's (overdue) review of Ian Brown's Remixes Of The Spheres, click here for the article.

4th December 2002 The Stone Roses self-titled debut album, of course made it into Q's (reader-voted) 100 greatest albums ever, click here for the full article.

3rd December 2002 Despite all the rumour-mongering going about the various Stone Roses forums, no track (title or listing) has yet been confirmed as the second single off of 'Time Changes Everything', although the gossips' favourite is '15 Days'. Details of the 2nd single release to be confirmed as soon as the information is made available.

3rd December 2002 Squire Live pic finally posted for the below gig review. Apologies for the delay but I've been really busy at work recently and not had much spare time. I've got a couple of Q articles to post over the next couple of days those.

27th November 2002 NME finally gets round to publishing a review of John Squire's Liverpool University gig and it's a very good write up actually.

26th November 2002 Rumours as to which track will be the second off of Squire's solo album ('Time Changes Everything') have been flying about. One visitor to IAWS forum (1love1heart1soul), claims that there was a new video of '15 Days' available to download in the video section. '15 Days' seems more like an album track than a possible single to me. Another track rumoured is title-track 'Time Changes Everything'. Details to be confirmed as and when they arise.

24th November 2002 Just uploaded NME's review od 'Remixes Of The Spheres'. I've also added te pictures to Q's Cash For Questions interview with John Squire, see Articles section for that one.

24th November 2002 Massive news today... It's Mr John Squire's birthday, so all charge your glasses and make a toast to the finest guitarist of our generation.

23rd November 2002 As promised, I've typed up and uploaded the Q review of 'The Very Best Of The Stone Roses', also expect NME's review of 'Remixes Of The Spheres' to be posted tomorrow.

22nd November 2002 Apologies for the lack of news updates recently, I'm off work with a snotty cold. I've got a couple of reviews to post in a couple of days. Head over to This Is The Daybreak now though, because Mr McAuley has just posted his first batch of live pics on his forum.

21st November 2002 Apologies to anyone who experienced problems last night regarding the Chat Room. I had a couple of probs, when I logged on at 7.15pm, the new chat room that I set up did not seem to exist, so I had to quickly reinstate the old bravenet one. Luckily though, I managed to set up a(another!!!) new room and all went well.

17th November 2002 Just added loads more stuff to my Discography, including new 'Non Discography / Promo Items' sectoms for The Stone Roses and Ian Brown solo. Also, in order for me to produce the most complete discography on the 'net, if you have something that is not pictured in any of my discographies, then please email me with a picture of it and details such as cat no, release date, etc. and when I upload it, I'll credit you as the source.

16th November 2002 For those of you that have not yet discovered it, Mick from Elephant Stoned has made available a 2 1/2 minute sample of John Squire's live performance of 'Tightrope'.

14th November 2002 Just a quick note to say that I've sorted out a new chat room with another host, it looks quite a bit nicer and is more advanced, check it out now to see how it looks, scheduled chats are back next and every Wednesday from 7.30pm (GMT) onwards.

14th November 2002 Apologies to all who tried to get onto chat last night, unfortunantly, the people who host the chatroom were upgrading their service and the room was closed for most of the night. This was unavoidable but hopefully we will be able to do it next week. I'm also looking into some different/better providers to increase the quality of the room, now it is a regular feature - I'll keep you informed.

13th November 2002 The Stone Roses made it into the NME's 100 Greatest Singles, no. 6, infact. Of course the single was 'Fools Gold'. To read the article and the full 100 singles click here.

13th November 2002 Site Update - Just given my other new section - Articles a bit of a face lift, making it more user-friendly and more pleasent to the eye, enjoy.

12th November 2002 Site Update - Just added a new section MP3s, access it through my Downloads section, or my clicking here.

12th November 2002 This Is The Daybreak forum user, StringThing (Mark Strange) has written and posted a complete review of last night's King Tut gig in Glasgow, to read the full reivew, click here.

12th November 2002 John Squire performed his debut solo gig last night at Glasgow's King Tuts Wah Wah Hut. As speculated the ex-Stone Rose guitarist performed several Roses tracks including 'Waterfall' which he debuted live on Xfm previously. To read the NME article regarding the gig, click here.

10th November 2002 The Very Best Of The Stone Roses entered the UK Top 40 albums at number 19 (and at number 3 in the indie charts) and Ian Brown's 'Remixes Of The Spheres' crawled in at number 87. Not a bad result for either considering the state of today's charts.

8th November 2002 Just a quick note to that that I've got my second remix effort up on Bedroom Remixers - 'So Young (Headlight Bunny Mix)' - Check it out!! I really think that it's a top idea for a site! If you've ever messed around with a Roses track then send it to Mick and get it posted.

8th November 2002 According to Elephant Stoned - Ian Brown are Mani have collaborated on a track for the new U.N.K.L.E. album that is currently being recorded. We are (of course) encouraged not to read too much into it, with regard to all the reformation rumours flying about at the moment.

8th November 2002 Ian Brown has made it onto three releases in the last 2 weeks - his own 'Remixes Of The Spheres', 'The Very Best Of The Stone Roses' and 'Forever Delayed'. Yes, it would seem that the Manics have included Ian's remix of 'Let Robeson Sing' (which is excellent) in the tracklisting of their 'best of' (CD2 Ltd Edn). Ian Brown is currently preparing to tour with the Manics in December.

7th November 2002 Last night's chat, was again a success and very entertaining and left me late for work this morning!! We have around 20-25 peeps in between 7.30pm and 12.00am and 11 people chatting at one point. Anyway, expect to find Wednesday nights 7.30pm onwards a regular feature on this site - with all welcome. Looking forward to next week, especially if we get someone in who attended the Squire gigs (next Monday and/or Tuesday).

6th November 2002 NME reviews 'The Very Best Of The Stone Roses', strange though, they seem to have forgotten to include the fact that the tracks were remastered!. Find the full review here.

6th November 2002 If you are online tonight from 7.30pm then feel free to come and join me for my second scheduled chat, last week was a bit of a giggle, so I'm hosting another one. All are welcome, just click on 'Squire Live Chat', pick a name and c'mon in!

4th November 2002 After a quiet, lazy weekend off of site design, just thought I'd post a quick note first thing - The Very Best Of The Stone Roses and Ian Brown - Remix Of The Spheres are both out today on multi-formats, go buy.

1st November 2002 Well another month begins, it's getting dangerously close to Christmas now, only about 40 shopping days left (until I start my xmas shopping!). Expect a new poll in a day or two plus I'll archive the results for October. I'll also try and add some more items to my Discography and upload a new batch of mp3s and also display them in the downloads section as well (so you don't have to search through the tracks). I'll also post my monthly stats - as I did last month. As a final note, I recommend that you go and check out the new look 'The Squire Site', it's looking funky.

31st October 2002 My first scheduled chat was quite a success last night (considering it was a footie night!) We had around 20 people in last night and the chat lasted from 7.30pm until when I left it at 12.20am, practically asleep! Thanks to all that came, it was amusing chatting to you all. Hope to see you all next time, Wednesday 6th November (from 7.30pm), anyone else who didn't attend last night is also more than welcome!

30th October 2002 NME names The Stone Roses as 'the coolest band ever' in their latest issue (out today). The Issues features a two-page spread and ties-in with the NME's coolest people in music feature. The Roses article itself is not indepth at all, more of a pleasant reminder of how things were and how they fit into music history.

29th October 2002 Just a reminder - if you're online tomorrow night and bored then come and join me in my chatroom 'Squire Live Chat' for my first scheduled chat. I'll be on from 7.30pm, so feel free to come join me to talk Squire and Roses. If it goes well, I may schedule another chat for next week. Just click on 'Squire Live Chat', pick a name and then click 'Chat'.

27th October 2002 John Squire's debut single 'Joe Louis' was released this week, but, sadly it seems that the single failed to chart - beaten away from the Top 40 by the likes of Groove Armada, Sushi?, Hell Is For Heroes and The Polyphonic Spree. Not the best of news for Squire but I'm sure that things will pick up as I think some of the reasons it didn't chart well were because the album was released before the single and that 'Joe Louis' possibly was not the strongest track he could have released as a debut single, I believe 'Shine A Little Light' or 'Transatlantic Near Death Experience' would've had a better chance of charting.

27th October 2002 Site Update : More items added to discography and descriptions added. Another batch of mp3s uploaded to my Tracks section - more to come.

24th October 2002 The official John Squire site has announced 3 tour dates for November, lucky for the people who live near Glasgow, Liverpool and Birmingham. See my Tour Dates section for details.

24th October 2002 The first bit of news is great, last night, according to my site stats, I had my 10,000th visit (in just under 2 months!) That really is excellent, thanks go out to everyone for all this support and interest!

24th October 2002 New link added to my links page and you've got to check this one out. Bedroom Remixers, it's run by Mick from Elephant Stoned and features a load of unofficial mixes created by us of the Roses community. I've just got mine added up there - Rosa Headlight Bunny Mix!

23rd October 2002 Just a bit more tinkering with the site layout today, thanks to a bit of help from Gary from Mersey Paradise I think it looks loads better. I've also updated my Family Tree (again thanks to Mersey Paradise for some more info).

22nd October 2002 And as I'm sure you must have noticed (on your way here), I've redesigned my homepage and the layout of my site, what d'you think of it? let me know at the usual address

21st October 2002 According to a post on the official forum (by user RosscoL), Ian Brown performed 'Waterfall' at a gig in Belfast over the weekend. Although Brown still remains adamant that the Roses will not reform, you can't help thinking that this is a positive sign. Check out this short review by a member of the audioence, posted on IAWS.

20th October 2002 Just updated my tracks section to include all 3rd generation Stone Roses offspring bands such as The Shining, The Yards and Mozer. I've also tidied up the Key and added an alphabet shortcut bar to the top of the page. Click here. I've also created a Stone Roses 'Family Tree' which I've added a link to at the bottom of the (tracks) page.

20th October 2002 Just updated my links page. I now have 30 links! Forums links have been added for Official, Mersey Paradise, IAWS and TSS. Other new links added are for The Yards (Ft. Ex-Seahorses Chris Helme and Stuart Fletcher and Ex-Shed Seven Paul Banks) and Mozer (Ft. Ex-Seahorse Andy Watts).

19th October 2002 After looking around the 'net, I've discovered that there are plenty of Squire forums knocking about but a distinct lack of Squire Chatrooms. So, as a trial, I've launched my own. It's only a bravenet one so it's quite basic but I've already been chatting with a few people on there. Click here to take a look.

18th October 2002 It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of my updated Discography section (v2.0). There's still things to do, it's only 90% finished but it was taking too long and I just wanted to get it live. The John Squire and Seahorses sections are almost totally complete and The Stone Roses section is nearly there (a lot of the CDs and Box Sets are still missing full details - but they'll be up soon). Check it out here.

18th October 2002 Congrats to JON FLEMMING, who was the first person to e-mail me with all 4 correct answers to my QuikQuiz Bonus Question. If it's been bugging you then check out the answers here.

17th October 2002 I have just been looking at my achived polls, the first poll that I ran was entitled 'Not that it is likely but which Roses song would you like to see performed by Squire (solo - guitar and vocals)?. Well at least 6 people(who, of the 65 that voted wanted to hear 'Waterfall') have at least heard this 'unlikely' event (thanks to the XFM session) and may well see it - if they have bought their tickets for the 2003 tour. Click here for the archived poll.

15th October 2002 I cannot believe it. I go out last night and wake up in the morning, only to discover that my site is temporarily down, due to the fact that the 322 unique visitors that stopped by yesterday used/downloaded from me 1.36gb ?!? and successfully used up my monthly bandwidth transfer quota. But fear not, I've just purchased a further 3gb but I will have to monitor it more closely. Happy downloading!

14th October 2002 I just had to reset my counter after it dropped back to 01410 for some unknown reason. Probably down to all the bandwidth that you guys used up yesterday - a massive 800mb!!!

13th October 2002 Since I first posted full details of this November's release of 'The Very Best Of' you must've been asking yourself just how good it could be.

CD-WOW are also stocking 'Time Changes Everything' for £8.99 (inc p&p) - Please note that it will probably be an Asian import (if you're after the UK version)though as they are based in Hong Kong.

16th September 2002 Well, it's Squire Day at last with plenty of copies being bought by us it would seem (from the various forums). We'll have to wait until Sunday to see just how many have been shifted and chart position it receives.

16th September 2002 Track details for the first single 'Joe Louis' (to be released 14th October 2002) are still yet to be confirmed, however, it does now seem that CD2 maybe contain some remixes. More details to follow.

15th September 2002 I've just uploaded the latest batch of artwork and I'm pleased to say it's been a great success so far with 22 submissions. I've set a final date as next Sunday (22nd September noon-ish). I will then set up a poll later that evening and run it until Monday 30th Sept 2002 and announce the final results on Tuesday 1st October, but for now there's still time - so get creating! In ARTWORK as usual.

15th September 2002 Well we didn't break the 2000 hit boundary on my site today but I've decided to post 2 tracks anyway as my site has been down all day (after it went missing for 5-brown-trouser-hours!) thankfully it's back now and the 2 tracks are available from my homepage.

15th September 2002 The Squire community goes mad. As some of you lucky sods got their albums early, the rest of us make a mad rush to the file-sharers, I downloaded Joe Louis and have listened to it constantly. Remember though kids - downloading tracks is fine for this weekend (if you're impatient) but GO BUY THE ALBUM MONDAY. Downloading instead of buying is not cool and it certainly won't help our man Squire get to no.1 or buy some new clothes!

14th September 2002 The full transcript for the John Squire interview with C4's planet sound has been typed up and posted online. Hats off to Dave R for this one. Click here.

14th September 2002 Another review of 'Time Changes Everything' this time it's written by the fools at the Guardian. Click here for the full review.

13th September 2002 NME jumps on the the band wagon, quoting Teletext. Click here for the article.

13th September 2002 According to a message posted on the ThisIsTheDaybreak Forum, John Squire is quoted as saying that he thinks a reunion is not as unlikely as was previously said. "I don't want to do a reunion tour because that would be putting matters to rest in the wrong way. If we were to reform, it would have to be to make a new album and do a proper tour with new songs. I believe that will happen one day." An actual Squire quote from p451 Channel 4 Teletext (Planet Sound). EVERYTHING'S COMING UP ROSY ?

13th September 2002 If you were watching last night's Phoenix Nights on Channel 4 then you would have seen the official advert for 'Time Changes Everything'. I couldn't believe it when I saw it. It looked very cool with excellent visuals with pop-up quotes and 'Joe Louis' playing throughout.

13th September 2002 Site Update - I've just updated my PRE-ORDER section to include the latest prices from suppliers (both Amazon and HMV have dropped the price of the std CD to compete with MVC). Also new supplier found who has also made available for PRE-ORDER - the first single off the album JOE LOUIS. They have suggested 14th October 2002 as the release date.

12th September 2002 It's competition time. After discovering and messing around with the new 'Action Painting' feature on the Official Squire site, I've decided to run a fun compo to discover the best budding artists amongst us. Find details here.

11th September 2002 Site Update - Just doing a bit of a spring cleaning with my site and files - more for my benefit than yours, however, you may find that some of the links for files and pictures have changed slightly.

11th September 2002 "Action Painting" section is added to the Official John Squire site - now you can create your own John Squire / Jackson Pollock style masterpiece, access it through the artwork section.

The rest of us needn't be bitter though and we're told Squire maybe designing other images for us to download and print onto 'fabric paper'.
