Ian Brown Calls Reni A Cunt, Stone Roses' Future In Doubt

The status of the reformed The Stone Roses is looking a little shaky today as reports of fighting within the ranks of the band come through following a performance in Amsterdam yesterday.

It is believed that the band’s drummer Reni got up and left the venue after the band’s main set, after which front man Ian Brown returned to the stage alone to address the crowd.

“I'm not joking, the drummer's gone home,” Brown said, according to NME. “Get all your aggro out on me, I can take it.”

“What can I say, the drummer's a cunt.”

After the main set finished at their Barcelona show last week, the band returned to play a ten minute-plus version of I Am The Resurrection, which Amsterdam fans were no doubt expecting to hear last night.

There has been no further comment from the band or their representatives since the incident, which only occurred a few hours ago, though it’s not the greatest start for the band who had suffered plenty of difficulties in getting along with other in the past.

We'll report more information as it comes to hand.
