Re: Would back to back albums....and that’s it, been enough?

Weller may attract his fair share of oafs these days, but the Roses gigs are also full of monkey walking dadrock neds who chant the 'Adored' riff football style and shout 'Ian Brown! Ian Brown! Ian Brown!' to the tune of 'Here We Go/Stars and Stripes'. Of course anyone who was actually around at the...

Re: Would back to back albums....and that’s it, been enough?

In 1990 I really thought that the Roses were going to be the biggest and most important British band since The Jam. But they never came near Paul, Bruce and Rick...

Re: Would back to back albums....and that’s it, been enough?

I reckon the demand for Roses stuff was there in 90/91. The reissued Elephant Stone going Top Ten showed that, and 'Adored' went into the charts simply because of 'Where Angels Play' (it probably would have got higher if Angels had been the A Side). 'One Love' would have been number one if they had ...

Re: They're kind of pathetic

Reni seems like a really nice and modest bloke when you meet him, but he does appear to have that Brian Jones and Steve Marriott thing about him. Like those two gentlemen (especially Stevie) part of him loves the acclaim, the adulation and the rewards. But then again he also seems to have an aversio...

Re: They're kind of pathetic

I thought 'good look to 'em' where the Heaton Park bonanza was concerned, because they did get screwed over by Evans and Silvertone. That said though, they got rich quick with a massive advance and a great album deal off Geffen and they still blew it. Some Roses members used to talk about being the ...

Re: The Stone Roses 2018 Events and News Thread.

When George Harrison was approached by a journalist in late 1970 (after the 'McCartney' album and its now infamous aftermath) George was asked 'What will happen now Paul has left The Beatles?' Harrison replied (with typical Beatle/Scouse humour), 'I suppose we'll have to get another bass player'. Ca...

Re: Reni, Pete and Andy interview part 2

Cheers, Geoff... Appreciated. :) I recall Bono's description of Martin Hannett too... Martin produced '11 O' Clock Tick Tock' and would have produced 'Boy'. but he was too upset about Ian Curtis committing suicide. Bono said he thought Hannett was like (the then) Doctor Who, only a madder version (a...
