VIDEO OF THE WEEK: THE STONE ROSES – ‘FOOLS GOLD’
August 6, 2018
Few bands come to define their generation, and even fewer get to deliver a TV performance that draws a clear line in the sand between what went before and what’s about to come hurtling down the tracks.
And nobody does it with this kind of swagger.
The Stone Roses can lay claim to all these achievements.
‘Fools Gold’ is the moment that Ian Brown’s mob not only ramped up a gear in terms of their music, as they perfectly plugged into the blissed and halcyon days as the 80s turned into the 90s, but also when they went from a cult concern into the biggest band in the UK.
