The Definative Story on the band that defined a generation, 21 Aug 2012
I was around in 1988 and watched the Roses at the Intercontinental, Spike, Blackpool, Ally Pally et al and the memories of the days came flooding back by reading Simon Spence superb record of the band from start all the way to the reunion press conference. You feel like youve been taken back in time, back to the rows, back to the vibe, and back the 89 when it really was the second summer of love. Charactors like Evans, Cressa, Phil Hall, Steve Adge all with stories that i havent seen in any book. Jon Robb book is great, but Simon Spence is book is brilliant. This truly is the One !
