Whatever Happened To… The Stone Roses?

Love Spreads – The Stone Roses (1994)
This English band broke through with their debut album, and this track, from their sophomore effort, marked their commercial peak on both sides of the Atlantic. But internal strife – and a protracted legal battle with their first label – led to them disbanding in 1996. Guitarist Chris Squire formed a band, The Seahorses (who released an album before breaking up in 1999), and also released a couple solo studio albums. Bassist Gary Mounfield (aka, Mani) joined the band Primal Scream, while front-man Ian Brown enjoyed the greatest solo success: He released six solo albums, five of which reached the UK Top 10. In late 2011, the Stone Roses reunited and announced their intention to return to the studio. They performed at several music festivals this past summer, but no word yet on when they’ll release their third studio album.
