Former Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown has developed such a close friendship with HARRY POTTER star Daniel Radcliffe, he's mentioned him in the sleeve of his new album SOLARIZED.

The FOOLS GOLD singer, who has a cameo role in HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN, struck up a friendship with the actor on set due to their shared love of the Manchester, England, music scene which dominated the British charts in the early nineties.

Brown explains, "Daniel is a great kid. He loves his music and that's why I put in the sleeve notes.

"He'll be p***ing himself when he sees it."
