Recently signed on with Universal & Columbia Records. Headlining fests in Spain, Japan & Scotland in 2012. And I wouldn't doubt Coachella grabs em here soon. Though I know it's a long-shot, I'd love to get them down on the Farm for a stoney Friday night set.

Stone Roses were f_ing brilliant 20 years ago. I think I still own just about everything they released.
I got into the Madchester thing really hard back in the heyday of it — in fact, I'm positive I saw Oasis at one of their very first gigs. I was more of a Happy Mondays fan out of the bunch, but they went to hell quickly with the dr*gs and all.
But I have my doubts as to how the Roses will sound today. Fifteen years apart in today's music is like two lifetimes. If the reviews are good, I say three thumbs up for a 'Roo spot. But I don't recall the Roses touring the U.S. even when they were huge in the U.K.
Playing Northside the week after won't necessarily eliminate the Roses, but I see them hitting the U.K. and Europe first and coming here later in 2012 or in 2013.

I pretty much agree with you. I'd love to see them - that first album and the whole Madchester scene had a huge influence on me, even way over here in the states - but roo just seems unlikely due to the timing.

It's weird - I heard that their recent U.K. shows were amazing, but then Pitchfork reported on their set at the Ola (?) festival in Norway and basically said they sounded terrible and looked bored. Hoping to see them at Coachella next year. I'd like them in the Pulp spot, followed by Blur.
Radiohead, prince, muse, chili peppers, etc...and they are lucky if they get 1 mill, but they normally only get 500 k
then you have third tier : snoop, dre, J z...they get 100 k
then you have 4th tier : black keys, munford byoncee, Prince etcc: they get 50k
