    Well, that's like asking me to define what is "cool". I can't.

    I was 16 in 1989 and for me personally he will always be a legend. Everyone here loved the Stone Roses, dressed like the Stone Roses, or had a story about Spike Island or seeing him about (he had a home in North Wales). He reminds me of a time when we thought we were cool as fuck (to borrow another bands motto) and were going to change the world.

    that's all about the Stone Roses though. A collective effort and that.

    What about Ian Brown? What's he done that's legendary other than be in the Stone Roses?

    He's been remixed by some really famous people.

    Probably nothing, but he doesn't really need to either.

    hm... curious.

    Obviously doesn't take much to be a legend these days.

    Nah, only have to be the figure head of the biggest cultural and musical movement that this country had seen in 15 years.

    what, baggy? :D :D

    I mean, that whole Mondays / Roses / Madchester thing was fun, but it didn't change anything and it was pretty fucking shortlived and it didn't really amount to much more than absurd trousers and expensive kagoules.

    If you're going to claim it was a bigger cultural and musical movement than rave, for example, you're a muppet :D

    eta: in fact, if you're counting back 15 years (which I assume is your implication) you're saying that Madchester was bigger than punk too.

    I like his solo song with UNKLE, the one that goes "I can't see you falling, I can't see you falling.."

    The Stone Roses were bigger than Madchester though, I meant as part of the second summer of love, which included electronc music, lsd, and e. How many Stone Roses fans were ravers? Fucking most if you ask me.

    Coming up on my first lsd trip when I was 16 listening to I am the Resurrection in a pub has probably got something to do with my opinions mind. :D

    What about the stuff he did without the people who had musical talent?

    El Jefe .. the Rural Juror

    so you seriously think Ian Brown was the figurehead of the rave scene?

    Seriously?

    No. I didn't say that at all.

    you did. you said he was the figurehead of the biggest musical / cultural movement, yadda yadda yadda. And when I said baggy, you said no, the second summer of love.

    Well in my mind that era of the Happy Mondays/Stone Roses/Rave was all one big mixed up amazing time, not some seperate scenes. So, he was important, fucksake I remember driving to my first rave with the stone roses playing on a tape in the car.

    Some of it's pretty good. Not a huge fan.

    lol, sounds ridiculous saying that, but I still think he's a legend.
