The Stone Roses reunion in photos

On August 12, 1989 The Stone Roses played their biggest gig to date at Blackpool's Empress Ballroom, in front of 8,000 people. However, their sense of triumph was shattered when they came off stage to learn that one of Mani's best friends had killed himself after being arrested for drug possession. The bassist reflects: "Everything we did was tinged with sadness."
