Like a lot of people, if I'm going to spend good money to see a big-time reunion, all the original members of the band had better be there. This is why the current situation with the Stone Roses is of grave concern.
Reni, the drummer, is in "poor health." What that means no one is saying. But in an interiew on British radio, Dodgy drummer Matthew Priest dropped a bomb saying that because Reni is unwell, the group is rehearsing with another drummer.
If true, imagine the angst of the 250,000 people bought tickets.
The band, however, denies there's a problem: "The Stone Roses are currently rehearsing for their forthcoming dates. All four members can’t wait to play the shows."
