John Squire has created a new piece of artwork to declare his feelings on the rumours, earlier this week, that the Stone Roses were to reform for a 21-date UK tour.

The guitarist-turned-artist has created the work, called ‘Statement’ pictured above, in response to the rumours. It simply states:

“I have no desire whatsoever to desecrate the grave of seminal Manchester pop group The Stone Roses, 12.3.09.”

Squire’s biggest exhibition so far is to open on July 5 at the Gallery in Oldham.
