John Squire has responded to recent reunion rumours with an outright denial.
His spokesman said he was not involved in reunion and claimed all recent reports were “unfounded from John Squire’s perspective”.
A spokesperson for Ian Brown said today, ‘We know nothing about a reunion. Ian is working on his new studio album which is due out later this year.’
The Mirror newspaper is claiming today (March 17) that the The Stone Roses are planning to reform later this year. The speculative reports seem to contradict previous commitments some ex-band members have for this year.
John Squire will be staging a major art exhibition this summer and Ian Brown is currently recording his next solo album. The report also suggests that the band may play the Coachella Festival, which is only one month away.
There’s been a flurry of activity to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Stone Roses début album.
Q, Uncut and Clash magazines have all published commemorative articles.
Update: NME released a collector’s edition on 18 April, recreating their classic Roses cover from 1989.
A box set version of The Stone Roses‘ 1989 self-titled debut album, originally released in 1989, is set to be released later this year – the album’s 20th anniversary. A smaller, ‘legacy’ edition of the album, will also be released. The expected release date is June.
