Blur reunion ‘not going to happen’, says Damon Albarn

Posted February 1st, 2008 by eric

After yesterday’s rather tame comments from Graham Coxon regarding why the Blur reunion didn’t happen as a result of a band lunch meeting, Damon Albarn has spoken up on the subject with a bit more drama, claiming that the rest of Blur “hate” him and don’t want to work with him. I’ve never gotten that impression from any of bassist Alex James’ reunion quips, and I can’t imagine that drummer Dave Rowntree hates anyone. But Albarn sounded definitive when he said “a reunion is not going to happen”, before adding gratuitously that he doesn’t need the money anyway. Yeah, yeah. Way more dysfunctional bands have sorted out bigger problems than Blur’s, so I wouldn’t rule it out.
