Stone Roses - The Stone Roses Amsterdam Show Ends In Turmoil As Drummer Leaves

The Stone Roses comeback tour could be in tatters before it even gets to the band's home city of Manchester after a gig last night in Amsterdam (June 12, 2012) ended in some confusion with drummer Alan 'Reni' Wren storming off the stage after what was apparently a problem with his drum kit. What has blurred matters though are various reports that he flicked a V-sign at his singer Ian Brown before doing so, and neglected to come back on stage for an encore - expected by the crowd given the group's finale of 'I Am The Resurrection' in Barcelona the previous show.
Muddying the issue further is that when Brown came back on to the stage to explain the lack of encore he said, "the drummer's gone home . I'm not joking, the drummer's gone home. Get all your aggro out on me, I can take it." He added: "What can I say, the drummer's a c**t," best get yourself sat beside that phone Robbie Maddox!
A spokesperson for the band insisted that the forthcoming shows will go ahead, which apart from the Manchester shows included a headlining slot at T In The Park in Scotland among others. However there must a be a worry given the acrimonious circumstances in which the group split the first time out, with first Reni and then John Squire leaving the group by 1994 so that by the time of the band's fateful Reading Festival 1996 headlining performance Brown and bassist Mani were performing with effectively session musicians. Those Heaton Park tickets may very well soon be fool's gold.
