The Stone Roses may reform in 2009 if the band's bass player Mani gets his wish. Mani -- who currently plays in Primal Scream -- reports that three of the four original members would like to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the band's watershed self-titled debut album, with frontman Ian Brown the lone hold out.
Speaking to Channelbee, the bassist said, "Me, [guitarist] John [Squire], and [drummer] Reni are up for doing it and Ian just needs some working on. It's the ideal time to do it. It's something I would love to do before we are all fat and bald. Start the campaign."
Of course, Brown -- who continues to record solo albums -- doesn't seem interested. But Mani believes he can convince the stubborn singer to come around.
Squire was the source of the band's split when he quit the Stone Roses after the 1994 release of the band's sophomore album, 'Second Coming,' to form his short-lived band the Seahorses. Although the band continued on without the guitarist, they ultimately disbanded in 1996.
