Twenty Years of the Stone Roses

2009 marks the twentieth anniversary of the release of the Stone Roses's self-title debut album. For those of you who are not familiar with the Stone Roses, simply put, they are the greatest band of all time. In 2006, NME Magazine (its kind of like the British Rolling Stone) name their debut album "the best British album of all time." You can listen to most of their stuff here. As part of the 20th anniversary, they are release a couple different versions of the album, including an absurd $120 collection of CDs, vinyl LPs, John Squire's artwork, and a book.

There's a tribute group known as the Complete Stone Roses. They're playing a gig in Edinburgh on October 3rd that I'm looking forward to going to.

EDIT: I found these cool T-Shirts but I don't know where you can buy them.
