The Stone Roses are definitely reforming, and Reni will be playing drums.
The drummer’s cryptic comment that was only sent to Louder Than War and to the NME was intended as a red herring and he is back on drums.
An insider to the band, who have been rehearsing in Manchester all summer – which we had heard about but couldn’t mention, also told us that there was new material and there will be a third album which would be their first release since the ‘Second Coming’.
There is still speculation quite where the band will be playing; Heaton Park, Manchester is a possibility but it would fit the tradition of the band to play a more off the wall location.
We received a text from Ian Brown on Friday confirming the reformation and sounding very upbeat about the return of the band.
All should be revealed at the London press conference tomorrow that we will all be attending.
