New Ian Brown / John Squire song sign now



This is not a petition but an open appeal to Ian Brown to take a bold step towards mending the hurt between himself and John Squire. We love you both.

Ian, we heard you say that John sent you an instrumental/backing track a couple of years ago and you even considered working it up for possible inclusion on his latest album My Way.

As a fan of great music and of both yourself and John Squire and the two of you collectively in the days of The Stone Roses; we would love to hear a new collaboration and while we accept that a Stone Roses reformation is at best a long way off and even more realistically, highly unlikely, we would love to hear you work with John again by any means possible and would adore to be able to hear a first new song produced by you both since the Roses.

You also said that you might reform the Roses for charity (but that youd doubt that the others would do so on the same terms) but how about producing this one-time song and donating the proceeds to a charitable cause like the Haiti Disaster or Warchild or any charity that is close to your heart. Im sure if the 1000s of fans out there bought a copy then it would make it an incredibly worthwhile effort.

So how about it Ian? No Roses reunion, weve gotten the message that thats not on your list of stuff to do before you hit 50; but how about a little time to produce an in-direct collaboration with a former band mate, former close friend and fellow legendary music maker to make 1000s of your fans beam the widest smiles and be able donate the proceeds to a worthwhile cause that will really make a big difference.

We patiently and respectfully await your response with fingers crossed.

Love and peace,


Paul Stevens and The Undersigned.

Ian spoke to BBC 6music on the subject:
It appears that ex-Stone Roses member John Squire sent Brown one of his own
songs in the hope it might make it onto My Way.

Brown admitted he actually liked the track, but his son advised him not to use it: "Kid said, Look dad, was he looking out for you back then? Are you sure you wanna do that?"

Brown might not be the biggest fan of Squire, after their rift, but he admitted the guitarist and songwriter still has talent.

"I could have fitted on the first three minutes of the tune, it was pretty good," he said. "He definitely did it with me in mind because it had electronic, hip-hop drums on it and I thought, 'Whoevers done that must have heard me solo stuff'. Hes still got it, its good."
