There is a rumour bouncing around the internet that Reni is not doing the Roses shows this summer because he is ‘ill’.
Dodgy drummer, a really good drummer in his own right, Matthew Priest told XFM radio
“I bought tickets because The Roses were one of my favourite bands and Reni was playing. But I’ve heard rumours that Reni might not be playing ”â he’s not well apparently and they’re rehearsing with another drummer. They’ve sold a lot of the 250,000 tickets because of Reni ”â I’d want to see them with Reni.”Â
A Stone Roses’ spokesperson has refuted this, saying that the band are currently rehearsing with ‘all four members’.
We were speaking to insiders last week and the rehearsals were going great with all four members of the band being there, so is seems like Matthew may have have misheard something. He also could be messing around, after all he was the one who, amusingly, made up the great King Monkey story about the Second Coming sessions- when Dodgy were in the next door studio and he claimed that everyone had to call ian brown King Monkey!
