- Me, Myself, and I
- Ian Brown is a singer, songwriter and performer on the UK’s Fiction (Polydor) label, for which he has released five LPs and a number of singles since 1998. He was formerly the lead singer for The Stone Roses (from 1984 to1996), one of the most influential British bands of all time.
Ian George Brown was born in the Greater Manchester area of England on February 20 th, 1963, to a working class family. Growing up on SylvanAvenue, Timperley, Cheshire, his neighbours included the Squire family, whose son John encountered Ian when both were around four years old, though they did not become close friends until their early teens. By most accounts, Ian Brown was a gregarious, active, and outgoing young man, while his friend John Squire was artistic, shy, and withdrawn. Together in secondary school (and at Grammar school), Ian and John bonded over punk rock, which Ian introduced John to. While John Squire painstakingly practised his guitar from his early teens, Ian’s musical activity in the late 1970s was attending “Northern Soul” clubs in Manchester. His discipline was Karate, which he studied from age 11 to 18. Both John and Ian became motor-scooter owners, an interest which led to Ian’s introduction to Gary Mounfield (later known only as “Mani”). John and Mani also became acquainted, the latter learning the bass guitar and making some early attempts at music in a short-lived band called The Waterfront, with John and other local musicians.
