    I say maybe because the source is the Daily Mail which is a huge pile of shit written by lying racists but...

    If it is true, what do you all think?

    I think it will be shit but will still get a ticket anyway.

    Here's the Guardian web bit posted only an hour ago which states that Ian Brown has "signed on the dotted line". Get ready for the fastest sell out tour ever. I feel giddy!

    My god, YES! I really hope this happens and doesn't just turn out to be hearsay.

    Holy crap. I'd be in as long as the price isn't a rape-fest

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    As much as I would love to see this happen, I just can't see it. I would love to be proved wrong though.

    Singing has been fine for the last 4 or 5 times I've seen him over the last 4 or 5 years. There's the odd ropey moments still, but the whole live setup now is more in tune with brown's voice... even the recently added roses tunes sounded good.

    Best live performance was the Golden Greats tour though... voice was spot on!

    Worst, probably V98/99 (can;t remember which) but the charlatans were playing on the main stage at the same time. There were constant arguments with the v staff and it was just plain awful :(

    edit: forgot the fine!! :D

    I'd have to count tickets, but I'm guessing it's over 10 times.

    So what? It's not just about the singing.

    I'd rather see Brown sing Waterfall, or All Across the Sands than any of the current crop of British indietoss do anything.

    Except maybe drown.

    Chris Martin, you listening? Go for a swim...

    ha ha... cock waver

    I saw them play in front of 10 people.. shove that up your arse.

    It would be tremendous if this turns out to be true.

    I've seen The Complete Stone Roses a couple of times - always thought that's the closest I'd get to hearing the music played live.
    That, and my legendary renditions of Sally Cinammon in the 19th Hole bar on Vilamoura marina...
    (There's one lurker out there who knows what I'm talking about!)

    Not as nice as I used to be

    Little known fact. My band was on the same record label! :D But they left and threw paint all over the boss' office.

    And we joined waaaay after they flipped out and fecked off.

    FCUTA!

    Seminal! They may well have been, depending on your point of view. But how incredibly conceited he is. No wonder Brown hates him.

    Anyway, if rumour is to be believed it's him that's always wanted it. Sounds like sour grapes to me. Damage limitation after the idea went to shit.

    FCUTA!

    They were :)

    [optimist]
    That said, not necessarily a denial, maybe it's a statement of intent... If I'm/we're gonna do it, it;ll be done right and for the right reasons.
    [/optimist]

    Not gonna happen though is it :)

    I also bet that if they do reunite and do another album it'll be shit.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    Fixed.

    I remember in my first year at uni the Complete Stone Roses played and loads of people I knew went and bought tickets thinking that they were seeing the "complete" Stone Roses on their triumphant comeback tour.

    I tried to tell them, but they were adament that they were going to see the original band.

    And I bet these new rumours are false.
