Ian Brown Proud Of Stone Roses Days

I think that’s why we were so successful when we did break through. But yeah, I am proud of what we achieved. There’s not a lot of culture here [in England], y’know. Like, tea comes from China, y’know what I mean? We were able to contribute something to the culture here. Not many people can say that.”
