In Amsterdam tonight, the Roses didn’t return to the stage to perform their planned encore. With Ian returning to tell the audience that ‘the drummer’s gone home’.
Their performance at the Heineken Music Hall, Amsterdam was their fourth comeback gig following ecstatically received performances in Warrington and Barcelona.
We’ll wait and see how this one pans out before we say anymore.
Update: sounds like this has been blown out of proportion and some misreporting going on.

Ian Brown’s new E.P. has hit number 1 on the iTunes album chart.
Stellify, a 4 track preview from his forthcoming album, has shot straight to number 1. Featuring the tracks Stellify, Crowning of the Poor, For the Glory and Marathon Man the new E.P. is a blinder.
Here’s a lyrics snippet from For the Glory to tease you:
And when the bombs began to fall
I didn’t do it for the roses
As I was striding ten feet tall
Well, that’s another story
For the glory
The good that you do
Will follow you through yeah yeah
I did it for you
I didn’t do it for the glory
