It seems like every day a rumor emerges about a defunct band that fans hold in reverence reuniting and returning to its glory days. The Stone Roses would like you to know, when it comes to them, it’ll never happen.
The British press had begun to speculate that the band would reform to celebrate the 20th anniversary and reissue of their 1989 debut album.
Guitarist Jason Squire told the BBC the rumors were rubbish.
Asked on BBC Newsnight whether there was any chance of the group playing again, he replied: “None whatsoever.”
Squire, now an artist, earlier used one of his own artworks to respond to press speculation that the Manchester band had agreed to a 21-date comeback tour.
A message superimposed onto a piece of art said: “I have no desire whatsoever to desecrate the grave of seminal Manchester pop group The Stone Roses.”
There you have it. The Stone Roses are done. Over. Finished. History.
