5.0 out of 5 stars This Is The One, 9 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Stone Roses And The Resurrection of British Pop: The Reunion Edition (Paperback)
This is The One!

There are many Stone Roses books out there but this was the first and is still the best- justifying its position as the best selling book on the classic band. The writer was there every stage of the way and knew all the key players and unlike some of the other books is not cribbed together from press clippings and to be honest, copied from this book.
This third edition is the best one yet and one of the great rock books.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great read for fans of the band both old and new, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Deep insight in to the early days of the band. Perhaps a bit to much about what each did after the split though.
Must admit I expected a bit more about the reunion as well.

The Stone Roses comeback has been hailed as one of the greatest of modern musical times...this book gives a great insight into the Roses themselves & the reformation of a truly one off band!

As a younger fan who was only a few months old when the debut album was released, the book gave me an amazing insight into the building of the band and the history of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Roses book just got bigger!, 5 July 2012

This review is from: The Stone Roses And The Resurrection of British Pop: The Reunion Edition (Paperback)
I bought the original version of this book years ago and loved it then, you can really tell that John Rob is more than just a journalist - he's the band's friend and confident. He was with them every step of the way and knows details nobody else on the planet would. He also writes brilliantly, reflecting the euphoria so present in the Roses music and the drama in their lives on and off stage. The new version has added a huge amount, bringing the story up to date with the most unlikely and celebrated of re-unions.
Any Roses fan, even if you bought the original version, needs this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The author of this book was there !!, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Stone Roses And The Resurrection of British Pop: The Reunion Edition (Paperback)
The author of this book was there !!

If you only read a few pages of this book you will understand more about the Roses than from reading all the other books on the Roses.

John Robb is clearly a real, proper, music fan who became a very good author, rather than a journalist/author who was just looking for their next subject. He has a great way of describing the various youth cultures and musical influences that helped to inform and form The Stone Roses. He gives a friends and fans view from the inside on the now legendary events which are so much part of the Roses story.

Buy the updated version of this book, as it includes details of the reunion.

If you have seen or even heard of the Stone Roses, I recommend you read this book.
