Morrissey: No One Wants A Smiths Reunion

Morrissey new albumPlease stop asking Morrissey about a Smiths reunion; he doesn’t want it to happen. According to him, you don’t want it to happen, either. That’s just what the Moz said about his former band in an interview with Billboard published this week.

In the interview, Morrissey was asked about the fans (and reporters) who have clamored for a Smiths reunion and if he was interested in seeing other bands reunite. He dismissively responded with, “I don’t know a single person who wants a Smiths reunion!” We’re not assuming that Morrissey is living under a rock; he knows full well that people have been clamoring for a Smiths reunion for a long time. But his distaste for reuniting with his old band seems to have taken the form of snide humor, instead of the usual dismissive tone that the question normally invites from him.
