With The Stone Roses opening their three-night homecoming stand at Manchester’s Heaton Park tomorrow night, now comes the “inside” look at their reunion: a cheeky 9-minute mockumentary called “The Stone Roses: The Second Second Coming,” which was posted to YouTube today and is quickly making the social media rounds.
The spoof features the faux Roses discussing how “Tron: Legacy” inspired their reunion (“If Tron’s got a legacy, than I want one,” the pseudo John Squire says), plus “appearances” by Noel Gallagher, Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, Morrissey, Shaun Ryder and Bez of Happy Mondays and more.
