John Squire Says, Fuck You!
After a couple days of speculations, the original guitarist John Squire (now an established full-time painter) let his art speak:
It says, "I Have No Desire Whatsoever To Desecrate The Grave Of Seminal Manchester Pop Group The Stone Roses." Well, it's a long sentence, but basically what it means is very simple and clear, "Fuck You! It's Not Gonna Happen."
Okay John, now we all know your strong commitment for not picking your guitar again. We respect your decision, and we still miss your music very much (exclude your solo stuff, sorry, they're just not great). All we can do is playing that timeless eponymous album again and again. Oh, by the way, this year is its 20th anniversary, even though it had been reissued 10 years ago, it looks like the record label will do it again this year, with "bonus" materials.
To be honest, I really don't know if there is still any unreleased material left from the Stone Roses catalogue, if so, maybe you don't want it to be heard by the public either, right? Isn't the record label very greedy? Now, I understand your decision much more. You don't want to be a part of the machine. You want to be freed from your own legacy. You know, not many adults can do that, can resist the allurement of money and fame. I'm glad you choose not to repeat and rip-off yourself.
So buddy, can I call you buddy? You don't know me, but I've known you for 15 fucking years. I must say, I still think you're one of the greatest guitarists of all-time, and Waterfall is undoubtedly one of the greatest songs ever written in the human history. I still love you, but I may need to forget you, forget any possibility of a Stone Roses reunion. However, you're always in a very profound place of my heart. Good bye.

I think he is very cool,
however, it is a pity after all.
On the other side, if he hates the idea of a reunion but still go for it,
it wouldn't be good.

I still love you .....John送給Ian的這句話真是太經典了....（還有那盒催淚的麥提莎）曾經看過John之前的小訪談..被問到是否會重組，他沒有把話說死，他只是說，他仍然想念表演live的時光，沒想到這會他當下倒是拒絕的相當堅決啊...T_T
也許Remember when we were heroes?When we were gold 的熱情也已經消逝了
身為石玫瑰（每次都被騙）的歌迷只能說... I Miss You Stone Roses.
PS：我最喜歡I Wanna be Adored開頭那與bass一起慢慢切進來的吉他聲..
