Description

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 debuts 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. This book features: interviews with some of those closest to the band, including ex-manager Gareth Evans; the full story behind the delayed release of "Second Coming"; a full run-down of post-Roses activities; a complete discography, including solo releases.
