Epiphone's Stone Roses
have just been announced as the first headliner for next year's Isle of Wight Festival. The quartet should have their new album out by then.
Bassist Gary 'Mani' Mounfield has been using his Epi Jack Casady
exclusively on stage for all of the Stone Roses' reunion shows and we hear he's employing it in the studio as well. Look for a new documentary
shot by Shane Meadows next year as well.
