Ian Brown - Ian Brown Blasts Royal Family At Stone Roses Gig

Singer Ian Brown took aim at Britain's royal family during the Stone Roses' homecoming show in Manchester, England on Friday (29Jun12), branding them "parasites".
The reunited band took to the stage for the first of three record-breaking outdoor gigs in its hometown, but Brown provided a moment of controversy during the triumphant concert.
Introducing their anti-royal track Elizabeth My Dear, the frontman referenced Queen Elizabeth II's recent Diamond Jubilee celebrations, telling the crowd, "This song's dedicated to those parasites down the road (in London)... celebrating 60 years of tyranny."
The huge concert was also hit by reports a bar area was "trashed" when hundreds of fans lining up for a drink were caught up in a dangerous crush.
