Shane Meadows - Shane Meadows' Stone Roses documentary concerns

Shane Meadows was concerned his Stone Roses film would be like a ''Christian rock documentary''.

The 40-year-old helmsman worried the forthcoming feature, 'The Stone Roses: Made of Stone' - which documents the group's reformation - wouldn't contain enough controversy if the band were nice to each other all the time, but insists he didn't go ''sifting for s**t'' to try to make it more interesting.

He said: ''We weren't trying to do a Michael Jackson, Martin Bashir documentary. You worry that if the band gets on all the time it'll be like a Christian rock documentary, but I never went into it sifting for s**t. It was a celebration for me. After that our names were put on the tea list.''

Shane was so desperate to make the documentary he insisted to the group he was the ''only f***ing person'' capable of doing a good job on the project, despite coming across as the ''worst fan of all time'' when he first met the 'Waterfall' hitmakers.

He told NME magazine: ''I talked to them about my ideas and I said, 'I'm not a documentary filmmaker but I know I'm the only f***ing person who can make this film.'

''I put myself on the line a bit but now I know more about them they probably really liked that, my honesty.''
