The Smiths To Reform?
Guitarist Johnny Marr says he'll reform The Smiths if the current UK government steps down. It is a powerful message to UK leaders, many of whom declared themselves Smiths fans while attending university in the 1980s. Hilariously, the opposition party have jumped on Marr's comment pledging their support to bring down the current government. However, Marr admits he hasn't spoked to Smiths frontman Morrissey about reforming the band, and suggests they aren't even on speaking terms. "He's doing his thing and I'm doing mine, and we go through periods of time when we're in communication and at times when we're not," he said. "I'm not sure he wants to communicate, so I'll just carry on doing what I'm doing, and live my life and be a musician." Marr made the comment at the NME awards last week, where he picked up an award for Best Reissue for The Smiths' "Complete" box set - the first award the smiths have ever received. It beat competition from Nirvana, Manic Street Preachers, Primal Scream and The Rolling Stones. "Putting out that reissue was a lot of struggle, so I'm glad that it worked out well," Marr said. "It's nice to get a pat on the back for it." Would you like to see The Smiths reform, or did Morrissey's comments about KFC being worse than the Norway killer put you off the band? Let us know in the comments.
