The Stone Roses shows a band sizzling with skill, consumed with drive and aspiration and possessing an almost preternatural mastery of the pop paradigm. This book explores the political and cultural zeitgeist of England in 1989 and attempts to apprehend the magic ingredients that made The Stone Roses such a special and influential album.
In 1989, The Stone Roses exploded onto the music scene at the forefront of a new wave of music from Manchester. The Roses’ music – an exhilarating mixture of sixties’ pop, rock and dance – made them the UK’s most talked-about group, while their first album, The Stone Roses, is now revered as one of the finest débuts of all time. The band’s flared trousers, baggy t-shirts and floppy fringes were copied by a generation, and their 1990 gig at Spike Island in front of 30,000 people became legendary. Then, with the world at their feet, and a multi-million-dollar record contract signed, the Stone Roses disappeared only to come back 15 years later even bigger and better. Their story truly is one of resurrection.
The band, the lifestyle, the revolution. This classic biography charts the phenomenal rise of The Stone Roses to the icons they are today, using interviews, rehearsal tapes and the archives of author John Robb who was with them from the beginning. Robb's exclusive inside knowledge of The Stone Roses creates a compelling and intimate insight into how the band single-handedly set the blueprint for the resurgence of UK rock 'n' roll in the 1990s: Ian Brown's new lazy-style vocals, Reni's fluid, funk-tinged, ground-breaking drumming, and the guitar genius of John Squire. From the band members' early years to the inception of the Roses, through the tours and success, their influences and style, to the demise of the original line-up and their solo careers; every high and low is documented in minute detail. This is the definitive, most revered account of one of the most influential British bands in pop music history.
The definitive collection of Stone Roses Songs. Includes songs released on Garage Flower, The Stone Roses, Second Coming, Turns Into Stone and The Complete Stone Roses as well as B-sides. Includes full lyrics, chord symbols, guitar boxes and playing guide. All the tracks have been specially arranged in the original keys from the actual hit recordings.
Based on 400 hours of interviews with over seventy of The Stone Roses' closest associates, including six former band members, War and Peace is the first major biography of the band that defined a generation. Originally planned in collaboration with Reni, the reclusive drummer, this book had been a year in the making when the Roses, against all odds, announced their re-formation. It is a remarkable coda to an astonishing story. In 1989 their debut album and the single 'Fools Gold' made them the most exciting British export since the Sex Pistols. With their incendiary aura the Roses became figureheads of the 'Madchester' movement War and Peace traces the band's genesis, studded with violent gigs and abandoned recordings, and shaped by their infamous manager Gareth Evans. As their jeans grew wider and their songs more anthemic, the Roses' legendary gigs culminated in the era-defining Spike Island show in 1990. From this pinnacle the unravelling was spectacular. With the band refusing to play in America, arrested for vandalizing a record company and dragged through the High Court, the epic recording of their dark second album is the stuff of legend. They disbanded in turmoil in 1996. Since then the Roses myth has grown even bigger. 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'She Bangs the Drums', 'Waterfall', 'This Is the One' and 'I Am the Resurrection' have become national anthems, and their first album is widely recognized as one of the best ever made. But the true story behind their rise and fall - and resurrection - has never been told. Until now. From the Manchester backwaters to the worldwide 2012 tour, War and Peace lays bare the irresistible tale of the last of the great bands. * With 40 unseen photos, including from renowned rock photographer Dennis Morris
The Stone Roses single-handedly set the blueprint for the resurgence of UK rock'n'roll in the 1990s. But the Roses are by no means resigned to musical history, as Ian Brown continues to reach his fans as a solo artist.
Manchester’s Stone Roses woke up a stagnant late-Eighties music scene with an eponymous debut album of danceable rock that set the charts ablaze and remains a fixture in critics’ lists today. The UK went mad for them but legal hassles, family responsibilities and personal problems ensured it was downhill from then on. Ian Brown, John Squire and Mani Mounfield remain powerful forces in British rock today, and now you can read about their trials and tribulations first hand. Here are The Stone Roses in their own words.
