Stone Roses Regrouping for Summer Tour?

Quote from: mirror.co.uk
Madchester's finest The Stone Roses are re-forming for a summer tour.

At least 21 gigs have been planned for the UK and there are talks of a US date – possibly the Coachella Festival in California. The gigs will coincide with the re-release of the band’s self-titled debut album.

It first came out on March 13, 1989 and shot them to fame with hits including I Wanna Be Adored and I Am The Resurrection. It is regularly voted best album ever.

Singer Ian Brown, who has a solo career, was the only one not sure about re-forming. But he was persuaded by guitarist John Squire, bassist Mani and drummer Reni. A source said: “It’s taken a lot of time to get Ian to agree but he’s finally signed on the dotted line.

“The rest of the band were really up for it, especially when they realised the amount of money on the table.” Squire, who designed the album’s iconic cover, quit in 1996 amid rows with Ian. The pair are rumoured never to have spoken since.

Reni left the year before and Mani plays bass for Primal Scream, who he joined in 1996.

Last year Mani said he would love to do a reunion “before we are all fat and bald”.

Hope they have the Thighmaster and Rogaine over there, because they'll need it. 

The only silver lining in all of this is that John and Ian finally see eye to eye on something.

Whether it actually happens or not... I love this quote. It's nice to hear someone admit the truth

Well, if there was any doubt, this is pretty definitive:
