The Stone Roses Are Reuniting, I Am Officially Old

It's likely that most of the people reading this won't know who the hell The Stone Roses are, but for the five of you who, like me, are well into your doddering decrepitude, this news will bring back memories of an age in your life when you frequently went to bed AFTER 10pm and were able to drink more than two alcoholic beverages in a single evening without suffering a raging hangover the next day.

Ahh, memories.

ANYWAY, yes, according to The Mirror, "21 gigs have been planned for the UK and there are talks of a US date - possibly the Coachella Festival in California." I'll believe it when I see it, honestly. But saaaay, wasn't it just about a year ago that another prominent band from that era reunited? Coincidence -- OR CONSPIRACY?

Bottomline, this dubious reunion story gives me an excuse to post the following video and do a little nostalgic shoegazing dance in the privacy of my own living room. Please to enjoy:

always home and uncool

Second Coming was highly underrated by the critics.

Apryl's Antics

I have loved them for (ack) over twenty years. "Fool's Gold" is my favorite, but this one's great, too.

Classic quote from an old boyfriend: "What's 'a dord?'"

OH!! I need to find my Stone Roses CD and put it on my ipod. Thanks for reminding me of them... my brain doesn't retain musicians/song names/album titles for some reason...

Whit

If they play Coachella I'll be there with bells on. Literally. I wear bells.

Mr Lady

Turns out, they really are the resurrection, huh?

Holly

More than five of us remember the Stone Roses! I love them- brings back great memories of my college days. Of course, I also went to see Morrissey Tuesday night, so I'm just really showing my age this week.

Jen.

Banging my drum, as we speak!

TwoBusy

For the record: Second Coming is an abomination. Except for 10-Storey Love Song.

That being said, maybe they can hook up w/MBV and bring us all back to the hazy/reverb-filled days of 1991...

margemayhem

I saw MBV play in SF in October and hated it. I really AM old. Sniff!
