The Stone Roses And The Resurrection of British Pop

The Reunion Edition




A classic biography charting the rise, fall and resurrection of one of the greatest bands in British music history

'The Stone Roses have become folk heroes, frozen in time. And their story, with roots in punk through post-punk, scooter boys, skinheads, Northern Soul, psychedelia, acid house and Madchester, is everything that is great about British street culture.'

Reni. Mani. Ian Brown. John Squire.

Names that will forever be remembered for creating their defining album The Stone Roses and a unique but inimitable baggy style.

Their phenomenal story was first documented by the man who was with them every step of the way: John Robb. And now, in this special edition of his acclaimed and intimate biography, Robb brings the ultimate rock 'n' roll tale fully up to date.
