Ian Brown has said that he would reform The Stone Roses - but only if he was reduced to "begging on the streets".
The singer, who played on the Main Stage at this weekend's Reading And Leeds Festivals, says he's disheartened by bands who reunite simply to cash in on their former glories.
"Maybe if you see me begging on the streets you might find me doing The Stone Roses the next day," he said. "We did it [formed a band] because we wanted to change the world, we didn't do it because we wanted to be millionaires."
admitted that there were a couple of exceptions to the reunion rule.
"I was glad when the Sex Pistols got back because they never really got paid," he explained. He added that he was also pleased The Specials together again.
