I’ve been watching the 7 Ages of Rock on VH-1 Classic, which has been decent, if a bit thin in its scope (the American Alternative section studied Nirvana and R.E.M. with only a perfunctory acknowledgment of anything else). During the British Indie section, The Stone Roses were given wild accolades, which I will cede on record. But live? Not so much. Ian Brown sounds like shit in every clip. Off-key, out of tune, whatever you want to call it. Just bad.
