MADE OF STONE - New trailer for Shane Meadows' documentary about The Stone Roses

The importance of the Stone Roses to legions of fans is obvious, and from this first trailer for the upcoming documentary about them, it's clear that director Shane Meadows is one of those fans. Although this documentary follows the band's 2012 re-emergence and subsequent live shows, it looks like with this film getting released and the Stone Roses related narrative feature/nostalgic love letter Spike Island arriving in a couple of months time, 2013 might be the year that their legacy is felt cinematically.

From the trailer it looks like an opportunity for Ian Brown, John Squires and company to shed some light on what caused the breakdown of the band and what prompted them to return after 20 years, as well as something of a personal journey for director Shane Meadows, here making his first documentary feature.

The Stone Roses: Made of Stone is premiering in Manchester (where else?) on 30th May before general release on June 5th.
