The Stone Roses are back once again. The glorious English band originally from Manchester are ready to shake the UK once again. After their debut album in 1989 I doubt they would have imagined that they would get this welcoming response.

After forming in 1983 and being around for what it seems thousands of years, it’s no wonder all the generations are fans with millions scrambling to get tickets to see them tour in 2016. Of course all venues are now sold out with odd tickets still floating about that will no doubt cost you more than your soul.

 I have to say that I was never really a fan of The Stone Roses until quite recently. God I hate it when people jump on the latest band hype? But it’s because of everyone talking about them that has made me want to listen to them.

After watching Spike Island it was confirmed, in love. That film is so well written and the way the describe The Stone Roses and music in general is exquisite. They managed to capture what a gig really feels like. The atmosphere that seems to shake the ground. Friends, enemies and strangers coming together by one force. The Stone Roses. If you haven’t watched Spike Island I strong suggest you do, the music is a huge element but it’s also about the gangs triumphs and mischief. God I wish I was an edgy teenager like them.

The Stone Roses have toured before, they’ve headline festivals but I’ve never seen this much of a reaction. Those lucky enough to see them at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium or at T in the Park, fucking relish in it.

My favourite songs are; I Wanna Be Adored, Waterfall and I Am The Resurrection.

You can also see The Stone Roses in action via a documentary filmed by Shane Meadows.
