‚Äč[Source: NME.com] Manic Street Preachers' Nicky Wire has hailed The Stone Roses as "one of the greatest bands ever".


The bassist declared his love for the Manchester legends to Gigwise at the Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef lunch and claimed their comeback is one of the greatest reunions ever.

He said: "I'm really pleased for them. I'm thrilled because they are one of the greatest bands ever. Them, the Sex Pistols and Dexys are the three reformations I really respect. There's a lot of people who just do it purely for the money but I think those three are amazing."

Lead singer James Dean Bradfield agreed and even compared The Stone Roses to famous footballers from the past, including Liverpool's John Toshack and QPR legend Stanley Bowles.

Speaking about the money the group earned to reform, Bradfield said: "If anyone's going to criticise them for earning that amount of money i'd just tell them they were talking absolute rubbish.

"For me the Roses just feel like those classic footballers that didn't make as much money as other people. They're like Kevin Keegan. It feels like they're making the money that they always deserved. I'm dead happy for them."
