At first when I heard The Stone Roses were reforming, I was intrigued, but a little disappointed. It seemed a bit like 4 men reaching their 50’s looking to make some money quickly, from the gigs, and a renewed interest in their recordings. But hearing they were making new music was a relief. Now, I’ve just watched the press conference and have to say, I think it’s a good thing. Mainly for themselves, they seem relaxed and pleased to be in each others company (though John Squire says very little). There is some truth in what Ian Brown says about them being a great band that plays together, and not many bands do that now. I was also pleased to hear Brown having a go at the Daily Mail journalist, there is still a critical edge to Brown, and I think and hope that that can provide the band with a desire to be more than a tribute act.
