Ian Brown has firmly, firmly ruled out any prospect of a Stone Roses reunion, at any point.

Apparently somebody had offered to pay all four of them a million quid each if they got back together - clearly, someone from the Madchester era's doing alright for themselves - but Ian's not biting.

Another ten years, then. Thing is, even if you had a spare four million, why would you want to get the Roses to play live for you? They weren't any cop live at their peak, and now, older, more upholstered and doing it for cash - why would that be any good?

This is all you really need, and it's a hell of a lot cheaper than an expensive onstage disappointment.
