It saves him giving them pocket money...

Former Stone Roses' singer Ian Brown has revealed a novel way of keeping his kids financially solvent.

Speaking at a special preview exhibition of Mick Jones' Rock N Roll Public Library, the singer told The Quietus: "[The exhibition] is amazing. It's really great. I should do something similar, I've got loads of Roses stuff at home."

He then joked: "My kids, though, have started selling posters of me on Ebay. They get me to sign them and then sell them online for £10. It saves me having to give them money!"

Brown is scheduled to play at the Reading and Leeds festivals this year in August.
