stone roses Biography
The British rock band Stone Roses was established in 1983 in Manchester, England. The group was one of the Madchester movement's pioneering bands of the latter 1980s as well as early 1990s. The most successful lineup of the band was comprised of Ian Brown (vocalist), Alan "Reni" Wren (drummer), Gary "Mani" Mounfield (bassist) and John Squire (guitarist).
In 1989 the band released "The Stone Roses," their debut album. The set spawned top 40 UK hit "She Bangs the Drums" as well as "Fools Gold," which peaked in the No. 8 spot on UK Singles Chart. "The Stone Roses" is considered by many to be one of the all-time best British albums to ever be released.
Attempting to capitalize on the band's success, the Stone Roses attempted to signed with a major label. However Silvertone, the band's record label, refused to release them from their recording contract. A protracted legal battle ensued before 1991 when Stone Roses signed a recording contract with Geffen Records. In 1994 they released "Second Coming," their second album. John Squire wrote most of the music, featuring a heavy, dark blues-rock sound. The single "Love Spreads" peaked in the No. 2 spot on UK singles Chart. Soon after they disbanded following several lineup changes during their supporting tour. First Reni left and then Squire.
In October 2011, following intense media speculation, the band announced they were reuniting for a 2012 world tour, starting with three Manchester homecoming shows. Stone Roses also plans to record their third album soon.
