The Smiths are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to reunite – ever.
Those are the words of Morrissey’s publicist, responding to yesterday’s rumor that the band is getting back together for next year’s Glastonbury (via RollingStone.com). When asked why, the rep said, “You’d have to ask Morrissey that. There’s got to be a story there, and maybe one day it will be told.”
Morrissey’s old bandmate/least favorite person on Earth, Johnny Marr, also denied the rumors. Speaking with NME, Marr’s manager said, “It isn’t happening. We are fully focused on preparing Johnny’s new album for release and booking shows for 2013.”
And that’s the end of that. Until next time.
