Morrissey Denies Reports over Possible Reunion of The Smiths
The former vocalist of the defunct
band has emphatically denied reports
that The Smiths will reunite for
several shows supposedly scheduled
Rumors that The Smiths will reform next year for four shows are not true. A spokesperson for Morrissey, former vocalist of the disbanded English alternative rock group, has strongly denied reports of a possible reunion. There was emphasis when the representative said, “The Smiths would never ever reunite.’ It was not disclosed why Morrissey has that firm opposition over the possibility of The Smiths reunion.
Earlier this week, a showbiz Website created a buzz when it reported that the band will have a reunion for four shows scheduled next year, including a significant performance at Glastonbury Festival. Holy Moly, the celebrity gossip site, cited several credible sources for the information. It was even implied that the awaited reunion was already a ‘done deal.’ However, it was not clear which of the band members agreed to reform.
Joe Moss, the manager of The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr reiterated the same denial. Marr was previously quoted as saying that the band will only reunite if the coalition government steps down. To many observers, that was like saying the possibility of a reunion can be almost impossible.
The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce, on the other hand, expressed optimism when asked about the possibility of a reunion of the band. During several media interviews, Joyce has been consistent in hinting his hope to get the band together again.
The Smiths was an iconic indie band that was formed in Manchester in 1982. The group split in 1987. Since then, The Smiths members have constantly turned down offers for possible reunion projects. Within five years, the band was able to release several classic albums, including ‘Meat is Murder’ and ‘The Queen is Dead.’ It also released several unforgettable indie anthems like ‘How Soon is Now?’ and ‘This Charming Man.’
