A Stone Roses history lesson from biographer John Robb (Series 2, Episode 7)

Nov 05, 2019, 12:00 PM
This month marks the 30th anniversary of The Stone Roses' seminal track Fools Gold. With this in mind, we got band biographer and music journalist John Robb on the line to give us the inside story on the creation of the song, along with tales from the legendary Manchester band's formative years in the early '80s.

Rick and John also reminisce about both having front row seats for the Roses' 2011 reunion press conference and subsequent world tour and discuss guitarist John Squire's recent comments confirming the band had split again. Will the Roses ever return?

Elsewhere in the episode, Sarah explains what happened when Jeff Goldblum appeared in one of her dreams and Rick runs the rule over Tame Impala's long awaited comeback track 'It Might Be Time'.

Do get in touch if you know what the hell Jeff Goldblum is doing at the start of this trailer by the way: https://bit.ly/2r9Na9M
