Rumours have been floating that the Stone Roses‘ drummer Reni is not taking part in their much-hyped reunion shows on the European festival circuit and at Manchester’s Heaton Park in the coming months.
UK tabloid The Sun‘s showbiz editor Gordon Smart reported that a guest on his XFM radio show – ‘Mat The Hat’ – has heard rumours Reni is too sick to perform.
‘Mat The Hat’ said: “I’ve heard rumours that Reni might not be playing – he’s not well apparently and they’re rehearsing with another drummer. They’ve sold a lot of the 250,000 tickets because of Reni – I’d want to see them with Reni”.
However, a Stone Roses spokesperson squashed the rumours, saying all is well in the camp and that Reni will be joining original bandmates Ian Brown, John Squire and Mani on stage.
“The Stone Roses are currently rehearsing for their forthcoming dates. All four members can’t wait to play the shows”, the spokesperson said.
