The Stone Roses 2012 reunion IS happening... (apparently)

The Stone Roses

Though there have been rumors of The Stone Roses reuniting for years, recently the talk has been getting louder. Contrary to what the group's drummer, A Reni, stated earlier this year:

"Two old friends meeting up after 15 years to pay their respects to my mother does not constitute the reformation of The Stone Roses. Please fuck off and leave it alone. It isn't true and isn't happening."

and again last week:

"wouldn't wear The Roses hat til 9T"

The Sun is reporting that during an interview they conducted with Dynamo this past Friday in a East London nightclub, the magician showed the interviewer a text from Ian Brown that stated: 

"We are going to rule the world again. It's happening."

Aside from Ian Brown and John Squire the reunion is also said to include original members Gary "Mani" Mounfield and Alan "Reni" Wren. Expect an official announcement from the band this Tuesday. The acclaimed UK group disband back in 1996. The potential gigs set for 2012 will be the band's first in 15 years.
