The Stone Roses background
The Stone Roses' unique sound, a mesh of '60s styled guitar pop with an '80s dance beat, led to them becoming one of the defining British bands of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The debut, eponymously titled, album The Stone Roses, became a sensation, which in turn led to the rise in popularity of other Brit bands like The Charlatans and Happy Mondays. Due to the unprecedented success of their debut album, The Stone Roses were never able to replicate that success and would go on to release just one further album in 1994.
The Stone Roses members are Ian Brown, Mani, John Squire and Reni and, when the group formed in 1985, they quickly gained a following in their hometown of Manchester. They released three singles in quick succession, the most notable being "Elephant Stone", showcasing their innovative sound of acid house and rock. By 1989 and the release of their debut album, The Stone Roses were a huge name in the music scene and had taken the UK by storm. The album featured some of the best Stone Roses songs like "I Wanna Be Adored", "Waterfall", "She Bangs the Drums", "Fools Gold" and "I Am the Resurrection".
The next album, Second Coming, was released in 1994 and displayed a heavier blues-rock sound. The album received mixed reviews and only spent a few weeks in the UK album charts. A massive tour was planned but, due to the departure of John Squire, the band eventually broke up in 1996. Thankfully, The Stone Roses are back together and have been delighting fans in recent years with their nostalgic concerts and Ian Brown showing what a magnetic frontman he still is.
