The Stone Roses Bass Guitarist Mani’s “Toby Jug” Collection On Amp

We previously did a story on Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson’s Barbie Doll Groupies & Dinosaur Toys on his amps and pedal boards.  The Stone Roses have reunited and are playing massive sold-out shows in the UK.   Bass guitarist Mani has unveiled quite a “Toby Jug” collection on the top of his amps.  Check it out…

I’m really surprised they haven’t vibrated right off of the amps.  Here’s a shot with Mani, Ian Brown and the creepy “Toby Jugs“…

Stone Roses Mani Toby Jug Mug Ian Brown Heaton Park

A “Toby Jug” –  is a pottery jug in the form of a seated person, or the head of a recognizable person (often an English king). Typically the seated figure is a heavily-set, jovial man holding a mug of beer in one hand and a pipe of tobacco in the other and wearing 18th century attire: a long coat and a tricorn hat.  My favorite of Mani’sToby Jugs” is the London Bobby jug modeled after the police.  Check it out…

I never knew much about “Toby Jugs” but there is actually an American Toby Jug Museum in Evanston, Illinois and it looks pretty cool.  I  haven’t found an explanation from Mani yet about his collection but rock stars are a strange breed.  Click below to check out Alex Lifeson’s Barbie Groupies.
