Response to Re: Ian Brown to support LG at Finsbury park
The Roses are not, and were not, a "biblical" band. They were just massively ill-equipped to be able to deal with their initial success, on a personal and professional level.
Part of it is, unlike the Smiths, and pretty much every other successful band, it turned out that there were 3 massive egoists in their ranks. A band can cope with one Morrissey, or one Ashcroft, or maybe a Lennon-McCartney, who can co-exist in their own ways. But when the drummer is in on the act as well, then frankly it's amazing that they managed 2 albums at all.
