Manchester bangs the drums for Stone Roses at behind-the-scenes documentary premiere


The Stone Roses returned to Manchester last night for the premiere of a behind-the-scenes documentary about last year's reunion and comeback tour.

The film, Made Of Stone, charts how the band went back on stage for the first time after a 15-year split. It was made by acclaimed This Is England director Shane Meadows, who joined band members last night at the Victoria Warehouse in Trafford Park.

The film is on general release from 5 June.
