rose stone


the Doctor smiled to himself - ‘It was sculpted by someone who knew you pretty well.’

Rose walked around the statue. ‘Is my bum really that -’

‘Yes,’ the Doctor interrupted testily. ‘This statue is accurate in every detail. Bum. Arms. Legs. Nose. Broken fingernail on your right hand.’

(The Stone Rose by Jacqueline Rayner)

To me, they are Led Zeppelin, without a doubt, and Stones. That’s why I said it, it’s great that they’re back together, and they’ll hopefully do a record after the tour done is everything, and make an album, and keep rolling. It’s just great for the whole rock and roll community that they’re back together and out there killing it.

Imagine your OTP

Person A is a florist who on St Valentines day sees person B alone and visibly sad, so they give them a red rose, smirking and saying “For my Valentine”.
They both get to know each other eventually, they go out on dates for some time and they fall in love.
Many years later, and old person stands in front of a grave. They look at the tombstone, get on their knees without paying attention to the pain due to age and they pose a single, bright red rose to the stone, whispering “For my Valentine” while a single tear drops on their cheek.

Sly Stone: 'Albino musicians could neutralise all the racial problems'

Although blessed with a vast audience devoted and open-minded enough to follow him down ever-more obscure musical paths, he seemed intent on alienating them, regardless. He started turning up to gigs late, or not at all, necessitating their cancellation with the audience already in the venue – in 1970, he missed 27 out of 80 shows – ruining the band’s reputation in the process. Quite why is a matter of debate. Some people thought he was just suffering from a lethal combination of arrogance and being permanently out of his mind on drugs. Martini tells me that he thought Stone’s behaviour was all somehow linked to the commercial failure of the band’s 1967 debut album, A Whole New Thing, a notably different-sounding record to any of its successors: afterwards, his label insisted he came up with a straightforward hit, which he did, in the shape of Dance to the Music. “When he started, he started with his heart and his mind wide open and he got down right away by the powers that be in the music industry, and it kind of broke his heart. We had a lot of success, but I think it damaged Sly morally. It hurt him that he wasn’t able to use his true genius to go in the direction that people like Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis did.” But once again, Stone says otherwise. “Nah, I was trying to be too complex, too musical. I was trying to be Bob Dylan too. But you know, Dylan had the words and he just kept the music simple. He knew how to do that. But I’ll tell you this, I knew how to do it after that album, didn’t I? OK, I’ll boogie down. All you’ve got to do is give them the music that they can hear and they can dance to, and that’s what we did. Dance to the Music!”

Stone claims the missed shows weren’t always his fault. The other members of the band were losing interest – “people get boyfriends and girlfriends, they start acting differently” – but “if you’re the leader, you take the acclaim, you should take the blame”. “Do I have any regrets?” he says. “Shit, yes, I have regrets.” There’s a long pause. “I just can’t think of one now.”
