Be Happy That it Happened

The Stone Roses have split up, again. 

Ian Brown has seemingly suggested that The Stone Roses have split up after the Manchester band played the last date of their UK tour in Glasgow.

As the gig at Hampden Park drew to a close, Brown reportedly told the crowd: “Don’t be sad it’s over, be happy that it happened.”

Are they fucking with everyone? Probably.

Are they going to put out an album? Nope.

Are they going to play again? Maybe in a decade, maybe never, maybe next summer. Who knows?

I cannot fault them for their business decisions. They reunited, they earned back all of the money they should have made when they were dominating the British music scene in the late 80s and early 90s, and they delivered what they had left. Two songs, neither of which were memorable, a spate of gigs here and there, and memories. What more do you need?
