David Beckham has revealed listening to The Stone Roses brings back memories of the happiest time in his career.

The soccer ace - whose favourite Roses track is I Am The Resurrection - paid tribute to the band in the programme for their much-anticipated comeback show in Heaton Park, The Sun reports.

Becks apparently wrote: "The Stone Roses was part of my upbringing in Manchester. And being an East End boy, that's saying something.

"Their music has inspired so many people but for me it brings back memories of the most happiest time in my football career, when I started my career at Manchester United."

He added: "The fact that they are back is incredible to see."

The programme for Friday's homecoming gig also features high praise from famous fans Noel Gallagher, Take That's Mark Owen, and artist Damien Hirst, who claims the band are "more important than Picasso".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
