The Stone Roses and the Resurrection of British PopPaperback - 2012
Fully revised and updated, with brand-new chapters and exclusive details on their reformation; this is the definitive, most revered account of the band, from a journalist and musician who was there from the beginning
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. 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, groundbreaking 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 lineup and their solo careers; every high and low is documented in minute detail.
