OASIS star Noel Gallagher is convinced fellow Manchester, England band THE Stone Roses will reunite in the near future - when they have settled their well-publicised differences.

The volatile I WANNA BE ADORED group's bassist MANI and singer Ian Brown performed together two months ago (MAR05) at the start of Brown's solo tour, sparking hopes for an official reunion.

And Gallagher, a friend of Brown, claims it's "a matter of time" until the group put their tensions behind them for good.

He says, "They've got unfinished business, and they'd have to do new tunes, but they'd be idiots if they didn't.

"Mani would at the drop of a hat; Ian and JOHN (SQUIRE) have got issues, but they can be worked out."
