Pete Garner, the original bassist in The Stone Roses, has died aged 61. 

The band’s lead singer Ian Brown has led the tributes to Garner on X, formerly known as Twitter.

He wrote: “Very sad. We were young punk rockers when we met in 77. The nite [sic] before Petes maths and geography O levels we went to see the Clash. Always made me chuckle he did that and of course he made the right decision!”

Brown added: “Few loved music as much as Pete he been bathing in music since [Sex Pistols’] Anarchy in the Uk came out that i can vouch for and Pete was off the scale nice, an old skool nice that ya just dont get no more! He got that from his lovely Mum! GOD Bless Pete RiP X.”

Garner was in the band from 1983 to 1987, playing on songs including So Young, Tell Me and Sally Cinnamon.

He quit the group and was replaced by Rob Hampson before long-term bassist Gary ‘Mani’ Mounfield took over at the end of 1987.
