Stone Roses' John Squire To Sell 'Statement' Art

Stone Roses guitarist and singwriter John Squire is to sell a piece of band-related original artwork, "Statement" through a Christies auction early next month.

The auction takes place on July 1, 2009. The full listing for the sale plus images and bidding details can be found here.

John Squire's first major public art gallery exhibition opens on July 7 at: galleryoldham.org.uk
