Ian Brown


Olympia, Dublin :What an unusual career Ian Brown has had. Twenty years ago, he was the figurehead of the world’s most acclaimed band, as The Stone Roses released an ageless debut album and his voice soundtracked a generation. I Wanna Be Adored, he used to sing, and adored he was. Nowadays, Cheryl Cole gets more serious critical consideration. The consensus among taste-makers says Brown is irrelevant and repetitive, his anger-management issues a stain on a once-great career.
