Product description

Review

This is the one. It's the definitive biography of the band, stuffed with photos that have never been seen before. The writing feels really fresh and definitive. It's a classic (Alex Heminsley BBC 6 Music Book of the Month)

A comprehensive, no-holds-barred account... details with steely, forensic precision the story of the group's ascent, heyday and spectacular implosion. All the triumphs and disasters are here (The Sunday Times)

A forensic, detailed and beautifully researched history of the Stone Roses.... full of new stuff (John Harris)

For the casual listener, or die-hard fanatic, this is a genuine masterpiece (What Hi-Fi? Sound & Vision)

This is the one Stone Roses book fans will want to read. Copies of this superb biography will not remain on shop shelves for long (The Bookseller)

An era-defining, definitive biography (Q)

A loving and detailed biog (Mojo)

Cute on the machinations of the industry and internal band politics (The Times, Book of the Week)

Brilliant... forensically put together (Gordon Smart XFM)

Simon Spence's Stone Roses compendium has it all - interviews with the Manc group's closest confidants, unseen photos and a timeline that stretches all the way back to the group's inception . . . The definitive word on the band (NME Music Book of the Year 2013)

Succeeds as a cautionary tale: up-and-coming garage bands would be wise to study it and show it to their lawyers as a prophylactic measure to avoid being fleeced and exploited (The New York Times)

A thorough biography of the Stone Roses ... illuminates the bickering and court battles that led to their downfall (The Guardian)

Comprehensive retelling of majestic rise, shambolic fall and royal resurrection of the original Northern wags. Unseen photos include one of entire band pissing in a field (Esquire)

About the Author

Simon Spence collaborated with Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham on the acclaimed memoirs Stoned and 2Stoned. He has written for the NME, i-D, Dazed & Confused and the Independent. He was at the Stone Roses' legendary Blackpool and Alexandra Palace shows in 1989 and covered their era-defining Spike Island show for The Face.
