Half The Stone Roses is better than…well, never mind

Former Smiths bassist Andy Rourke (not one of Morrissey’s favorite people since he testified in Mike Joyce’s case against the former Smiths leader for back royalties) is organizing the line-up for the Versus Cancer Benefit, taking place in Manchester, England on March 30th. Echo & the Bunnymen, Peter Hook (New Order), Noel Gallager, Paul Weller, and The Charlatans are set to perform, along with ex-Stone Roses bassist, Mani, and vocalist Ian Brown. I’m not sure how exciting just basslines and vocals will be for Stones Roses arrangements, but Rourke promises something “quite special” for the finale. Oh, please let it be that Slash will finally get to rip through “I Wanna Be Adored.”
