No Big Deal

Ian Brown plays Coachella with The Stone Roses

So, the Stone Roses played in America for the first time since their disastrous tour supporting Second Coming, and they had to do it in the wee early hours of the morning in front of whoever bothered to show up? And that was supposed to be a gig?

What a shame. The Roses have never properly toured America, in my opinion, and they need to get out there and play those small venues and tear the roof off every night. They need to play 1,000 seat venues and crush it. A new album, a 50-date tour, and a solid promotional campaign in America would certainly help people understand why they are an important band.
