13. 3. THE STONE ROSES
Ian Brown and John Squire met at Altrincham Grammar School and went through various bands, before becoming the definitive line-up of The Stone Roses with Mani and Reni in 1987. Their debut album was a mix of classic indie and psychedelia, which became part of the “Madchester” sound. It was 5 long years before a follow-up arrived: titled The Second Coming, it didn’t get the acclaim of the debut and the band split in 1996. In 2011 they announced comeback shows and will play more gigs in 2016.
