After the Roses astonishing comeback there is talk of who could be next….
1. Oasis is always a possibility, afterall they are brothers and Liam did tell us that he still loved his brother when we interviewed him in January…Noel is about to go to number one in the album charts though so could be tricky…one of the Gallaghers has to blink first in the stand off.
2. Even more intriguing is Morrissey/Marr…could they reform the Smiths or come back as Morrissey/Marr, on paper this is tricky. Morrissey, despite what he says has got a very successful solo career-he may not have a record deal at the moment but that’s because he can’t get he one that he wants, his recent new songs on a radio session sounded good and he is a major international live draw. Johnny Marr can walk into any band in the world and had a number one album in America last year with Modest Mouse and has a great new band that we reviewed last week, so the Smiths wouldn’t be for the money.
We know they have been in touch over the years and there was talk in town of them meeting but what that was about could have been anything, afterall you have to meet to sort out old band business or could it have been a reunion? If that was the talk the Roses reunion would have kicked it into touch for some time…
3. Hooky to rejoin New Order….mmm, will get back to you on this one.
