The Stone Roses

'The Stone Roses were an English alternative rock band formed in Manchester in 1984.

They were one of the pioneering groups of the Madchester movement that was active during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The band's original lineup consisted of Ian Brown (vocals), John Squire, Andy Couzens, Pete Garner and Alan "Reni" Wren Couzens and Garner left in 1987.

Couzens' position was left vacant and Garner was replaced by Gary "Mani" Mounfield in 1987, and this completed the band's most visible lineup.

Reni would depart in 1995 and was replaced by Robbie Maddix, and a year later Squire departed and was replaced by Aziz Ibrahim.

Nigel Ippinson joined the band in 1995.

Their 1989 debut album The Stone Roses quickly achieved the status of a classic in the UK, and topped NMEs list of the Greatest British Albums of All Time.

The band decided to capitalise on their success by signing to a major label, but Silvertone would not let them out of their contract, which led to a long legal battle.

The band signed with Geffen Records in 1991, but it wouldn't be until 1994 that they released another album, Second Coming.

The album had a heavier sound to it, which was not well received by the press.

After experiencing several lineup changes throughout the supporting tour, the band decided to disband after its completion and associated touring.
