Stone Roses Rumours: Reni Speaks?

Plus further clues from Brother John Robb

So yesterday The Quietus was cynical about rumours that a Stone Roses reunion was to be announced at a press conference next Tuesday, to be held by the Murray Chalmers press agency. Yet overnight there have been further developments, reported by our friend John Robb over at Louder Than War. Robb writes that he and NME were sent the following quote by former Stone Roses drummer Reni: "Not before 9T will I wear the hat 4 the Roses again.” Robb writes that he is as baffled as anyone else by the quote. A Google of "9T" turns up a Star Wars droid and a hair tweezer. The Quietus speculates Reni is saying "not before I am 90 will I wear the hat", suggesting that he might not be involved in any future gigs with Mani, John Squire and Ian Brown. John Robb also writes that "I can’t give the full story but it looks like something is on."
