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 piece was created to put an end to rumours that the Roses were going to reform earlier this year. The handwritten signed and dated statement on the 10 gauge steel box outline declares: "I have no desire whatsoever to desecrate the grave of seminal Manchester pop group The Stone Roses"

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
