Watch Rob and Kirk pay homage to Madchester legends The Stone Roses with a live version of “I Wanna Be Adored” from the band’s self-titled debut, which turned 30 earlier this year.
Pro tip: if you’re ever in England and you nip into a pub for a pint and the pub you nip into is full of locals and they’re giving you the stinkeye because you’re a tourist, put “I Wanna Be Adored” on the jukebox. I did exactly this years ago and made fast friends with all the regulars instantly.
