Man, you travel to TX for one day, and in that time The Stone Roses both reunited and disbanded again. Well, that's if you follow the rumors printed in the British tabloids.
Yesterday, The Daily Mirror exclusively reported that the band was preparing a 21 gig UK tour this summer to accompany the boxed set reissue of their debut LP. An appearance at Coachella was also mentioned.
Citing a "source," the Mirror actually went on to say that both John Squire and Ian Brown (who was apparently persuaded by Squire) on board: “It’s taken a lot of time to get Ian to agree but he’s finally signed on the dotted line. The rest of the band were really up for it, especially when they realised the amount of money on the table.” Squire quit in 1996 due to, well, let's call them creative differences, with Ian. The pair are rumoured never to have spoken since.
But that was yesterday, and today is today. And with this rumor comes the quick squash by both Brown and Squire, as NME reports the guitarist notes the reunion tour info is completely "unfounded" and that John "is not initiating a reunion or tour." As if that doesn't seal the deal, Brown's publicist told the Daily Mail that the singer concurs with Squire, and that he "knows nothing about a reunion. Ian is working on his new studio album which is due out later this year."
