Brown’s work with the Stone Roses, has provided inspiration for numerous bands.Oasis frontmen Liam and Noel Gallagher have cited on numerous occasions the Stone Roses’ and Ian’s influence on the band. Noel recently quoting lyrics from Stone Roses track ‘She Bangs the Drums’ as ‘my inspiration’ for a recent HMV poster campaign and remarking on his initial thoughts on seeing the Stone Roses for the first time in (now defunct) Manchester club The Haçienda “That’s what we [Oasis] want to look like” Arctic Monkeys have cited that Brown is their ‘musical hero’. Other bands influenced by Ian Brown/The Stone Roses are The Verve, The Charlatans, Kasabian, Coldplay, Babyshambles and The Bluetones.
Liam Gallagher and Tim Burgess of The Charlatans have been influenced by Ian’s physical appearance in the days of the Stone Roses. Both have, at some stage, sported replicas of Ian Brown’s characteristic long, shaggy haircut, and have worn clothing on stage in similar fashion to what Ian would have worn on tour with the Stone Roses, particularly Adidas trainers and tracksuits.
