The Stone Roses



The Stone Roses were an English alternative rock band formed in Manchester, England in 1984. They were one of the pioneering groups of the Madchestermovement that was active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band's most notable lineup consisted of vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassistGary "Mani" Mounfield, and drummer Alan "Reni" Wren.

The band released their d├ębut album, The Stone Roses, in 1989. The album was a breakthrough success for the band. At this time the Stone Roses decided to capitalise on their success by signing to a major label; however, their current record label Silvertone would not let them out of their contract, which led to a long legal battle that culminated with the band signing with Geffen Records in 1991, and then finally releasing their second album Second Coming in 1994. The group soon disbanded after several lineup changes throughout the supporting tour, which began with Reni first departing, followed by Squire.
