Ah, the power of the idle word said in an unguarded moment: now, all of a sudden, the nation is girding itself for the Stone Roses reunion after John Squire suggested in jest it might make a fitting replacement for Kylie on Sunday night. Apart from anything, Ian Brown is already booked to be headlining one of the further-flung stages at the same time. And... frankly, the Stone Roses live aren't really going to send people home from Glastonbury with a shiver running down their spine - there's a difference between being a witness to history and morbid curiosity.
