Former Stone Roses bassist Mani has said the band will reform if they are offered enough money.

His comments come just three months after both Ian Brown and John Squire publically stated that the Manchester band will never play together again.

"Ian and John have to get it sorted out and take it from there," Mani told The Sun.

"For all the morals and principles that people have, you wave fucking £20m in front of somebody and they change their mind. You'll see how their philosophies soon change."

Despite still harbouring hopes that the band will play together again one day, Mani admitted he's "very nearly given up" on trying to orchestrate a reunion.

The bassist added that whatever the future holds for The Stone Roses, he's still happy playing in Primal Scream.

"If it doesn't happen, it's no skin off my nose as I'm in Primal Scream and having the time of my life."
