And Finally

Stone Roses’ Mani discovers £2m in bank account

Stone Roses bassist Mani received a shock recently when he checked his bank balance at a cash machine and found £1.8 million had been deposited.

According to The Sun, Mani told friends in Stockport: “It’s madness. I only went out to buy milk and things. I went to the cashpoint and someone has stuck nearly £2 million in while I wasn’t looking. The whole world’s gone crazy. I could have fallen over backwards when I saw the balance”.

That this was a surprise to him suggests he didn’t read his contract for the band’s upcoming reunion tour very closely, the money being his share of the advance.
