Stone Roses - Stone Roses Star Discovers Long-lost Brother

Stone Roses star Gary 'mani' Mounfield recently discovered a new member of his family circle after meeting his long-lost half-brother.

The bassist learned last year (12) his father Colin had another son named Steve Jones, who he kept a secret from his relatives.

Jones went online in search of more information about his dad, leading him to Mounfield's brother Greg, who later broke the news to the rocker.

Jones tells Wales Online, "When I got in touch, Mani was asking around the family, and one of the old uncles said he knew about me but was sworn to secrecy. I said fair play - he can keep a secret! He was the only one. Even Mani's mum didn't know."

Mounfield and Jones finally met last summer (Jul12) at Spain's Benicassim Festival, where Mounfield handed his new sibling a haul of signed memorabilia.

Jones adds, "I remember what Mani said when we were parting after that first meeting. We hugged each other and I said, 'Sorry it's coming to an end.' He said, 'It's not the end, it's just the beginning.'"
