Some call him King Monkey, others call him a "God-like genius," but his real name is Ian George Brown.
Ian Brown first emerged to the music scene in the 80s with his rock band, The Stone Roses. The Stone Roses dominated the Manchester music scene with their singles such as "I Wanna Be Adored," and "Waterfall." Ever since then Ian Brown was crowned as one of Manchester's most iconic musicians.
In 1998, following the split of The Stone Roses, Ian Brown ventured out on a solo career with the release of his debut album, "Unfinished Monkey Business." His solo career solidified Brown as one of the most remarkable artists.
Here are 10 of Ian Brown's best solo songs:
