Looks like empty rumours. Could be a blessing, i'm still getting nightmares from the "Reading" performance.  Cry

Yes, their first album was good. After that? Seriously?

not as good perhaps, but things in the world of music rarely are, especially following what was to become a classic album.

it's all subjective.

True. As I prefer early Genesis to newer in another topic here.

If they make you happy, Abby, sounds good to me.

and more denials...this time from John.  

http://www.nme.com/news/the-stone-roses/43512

I'm sure it will happen sometime, but not now.

Incidentally, am I the only person that thinks The Second Coming is a stonkingly good album?  I saw them in '95 (at the soulless hellhole that is the Brighton Centre) and they were outstanding as well....missed em in '89, mind.

I liked it.. Though "the Second Coming" in itself was a demonstration of how, if you try to go back and relive the past, it's never quite as good as it was the first time. People change, and the makers of music and their listeners are included in that. Anyway, do you think there's a studio big enough for all those egos?

(I'm not saying you need to leave your spouses, throw out all your records and be borne on the tides of Fashion. That would be boring in the end and, besides, thirtysomethings can't be too cavalier  -  the last person apart from my spouse to proposition me was this alkie at work who has been "resting" ever since. And that was a year ago. Stick to what you've got like glue, but don't try to dredge up what you had from the sands of Time (I'm mixing my metaphors like.. Delia Smith, here, aren't I? Sorry, that last one was a simile)  - as it will have suffered a sea-change while you weren't looking.)        
 
Apart from Peter Beardsley, who used to walk round Newcastle all the time and is quite tall and noticeable, Ian Brown is the only genuinely famous person whom i've seen twice, outside concerts. Once he was buying a bottle in Sainsbury's and once he was getting on a Metro just when I was getting off it.

I looked for the smiley, but I couldn't find it.  Peter Beardsley is 5ft 8 inches tall (but looked about 6 inches smaller than that)  Grin

He is, however, quite noticeable!

But "quite tall" by my standards is anything above 5'3"! Anyway, I think last time I saw him he was carrying a child on his shoulders.. I still wouldn't be much good as a witness to a crime, would I? "The mugger was..erm.. quite tall..well, that is, he might have been a quite short man with a child on his shoulders..erm..yes, I expect the child would have fallen off had that been the case..yes, i suppose I would have noticed the superfluity of arms, legs and heads..ok..CASE DISMISSED!"

This new bit of artwork, dated yesterday by a certain Mr John Squires probably tells you everything you need to know about the truth of the current rumours!  Smiley
