The Stone Roses by John Robb
“This classic biography charts the phenomenal rise of The Stone Roses to the icons they are today.”
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 who was with them from the beginning.
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, ground-breaking 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 line-up and their solo careers; every high and low is documented in minute detail.
This is the definitive, most revered account of one of the most influential British bands in pop music history.
Often created in opposition to mainstream music, Indie or Indie Rock is the output of authentic bands that are producing music away from the big commercial labels. The movement is regarded as being created in the UK with the release of C86 tape by NME. The C86 tape was a collection of bands and included Primal Scream, The Wedding Present, The Soup Dragons and Half Man Half Biscuit. The indie scene spawned the Stone Roses and Oasis and more recently the Arctic Monkeys and Mystery Jets. We recommend John Robb’s The Stone Roses and Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds –Any Road Will Get Us There.
