Ian Brown and John Squire have had "emotional reunion", according to one red-top...

Have The Stone Roses reformed? The Sun certainly seem to think so, with a 'source' telling the paper: "Ian [Brown] has been mulling over reaching out to John [Squire] for a while now. A lot of water has gone under the bridge and everyone has grown up. Ian has just gone through a tough time with a divorce and then Mani's mum's funeral brought everyone back under the same roof. "It was an emotional reunion. There were no harsh words. It was a heartwarming breaking of bread. They had a lot to catch up on and have been in regular contact since." Former Inspiral Carpets man Clint Boon tweeted today "It's true that Ian & John met recently. It was at Mani's mum's funeral. We all went back to a pub in Failsworth. Ian & John got on great."
