Liam Gallagher’s toilet mat needed a boil wash after The Stone Roses announced their comeback.
During his cameo in the Manchester band’s movie documenting their return, he revealed his exact location when he heard the news.
Liam said: “I was having a p*** when I heard The Stone Roses were getting back together.”
He went on to explain how he lost control before adding: “They’re the best band ever to come out of Manchester.”
The Beady Eye frontman missed the premiere of The Stone Roses: Made Of Stone movie in the city on Thursday.
But hopefully director Shane Meadows sent him a copy on DVD because the film – out on June 5 – is a work of art. The opening and closing sequences featuring Ian Brown will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, and intimate footage of the band rehearsing is a real treat. However, the pick of many highlights is footage of the Roses’ comeback gig at Parr Hall, Warrington.
Shane had cameras outside the venue when news of the surprise gig was announced on Radio 1 and the band’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
Fans were asked to bring their Stone Roses memorabilia to the venue to get for a free ticket.
A builder turned up saying he’d “just knocked through a wall” but downed tools to claim a ticket still in his overalls. Another punter showed off sweat patches under his arms to show how fast he’d run.
A number of fans were filmed on their phones asking family to ferry over their CDs. The scenes are topped off with live footage of the comeback gig for 1,500 fans.
Add this to rarely seen archive material documenting the band’s history, footage of the group on the road and brilliant concert coverage and the film is well worth a watch – even if you’re not a Roses fan.
