Squire @ Move 2003

You can't really mention John Squire without thinking of Ian Brown. Despite the fact that Squire's album "Time Changes Everything" surpasses every single solo release from Brown, when it comes to the old Roses songs played today such as "Made In Stone", "How Do You Sleep?", "Tightrope" and "Fools Gold" it seems wrong with Squire on lead vocals. On his solo tracks "I Miss You", "Satellites" and "Time Changes Everything" the Dylan-esque tones suit the songs perfectly, but without Brown on vocals Squire's vocals are always going to seem like a poor relation. Whether the Roses will reform is one of constant speculation, but it was interesting to note that the only day of Move that Mani wasn't ligging in the backstage area was on the day that Squire performed.
