Ian George Brown (born February 20, 1963) is an English musician and former lead singer of the indie rock/Madchester band The Stone Roses. He is held in high regard by music fans across the UK for his work with the group as well as his work since the band's acrimonious and prolonged break up in 1996, Brown has released four solo albums to critical acclaim across Britain. He has appeared on several club tours and has performed at the Glastonbury Festival three times since 1998.
Brown was born in Warrington, Cheshire in 1963.
His father, George, was a joiner and his mother Jean worked in a paper factory. Brown's family moved when he was young and he grew up in Timperley, Greater Manchester, along with his brother and sister, as a karate-obsessed admirer of Muhammed Ali, George Best and Bruce Lee.
