I had the privilege last night of seeing Ian Brown live at Leeds University. Rumours had been rife that he was gonna do Stone Roses tracks on this tour as well as his own solo stuff, and I'm delighted to say the rumours were true ! After starting off with one of his solo b-sides, the first few notes of Sally Cinnamon were played. The place went absolutely bananas - I've not seen anything like it at a gig for years ! He proceeded to play Sally Cinnamon, Sugarspun Sister, Waterfall, Where Angels Play, Made of Stone and She Bangs The Drums...........any Roses fans out there will be able to imagine the reaction ! He then did some of his solo stuff, and finished the evening off with I Wanna Be Adored. It was total hero worship - one of the best gigs I've ever been to, and I've been to about 200 at the last count ! He's playing Manchester, Glasgow and London as well I think - if you're a fan of the Roses, don't miss it. Ian.
