Published Aug 08, 2008Though every old band and their dog is reuniting and buying fur coats with the profits, some will refuse to get back together. Take, for example, The Stone Roses . Active from 1984 to 1996, the English alternative rockers released two albums and broke up, leaving in their wake a dedicated audience of rabid followers.
But in a recent Guardian interview with former Rose and current solo artist Ian Brown, the singer said the band would never return, at least "not in the next three lifetimes. Assuming Brown, now 45, lives to 80 in all four lifetimes before then, that pits their reunion for the year 2283. So, not very hopeful, but maybe your future generations will be interested.
Brown most recently released his fifth solo album, The World Is Yours, in 2007 and is currently at work on a new release for 2009.
