Morrissey Denies The Smiths Reunion

MorrisseyThe Smiths are "never, ever going to reunite."

Morrissey's spokesperson has categorically denied rumors of a reunion for the "How Soon Is Now?" hitmakers and has hinted at tension between the group's members.

"The Smiths are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to reunite - ever," the singer's representative told Rolling Stone.

When probed as to why, he replied, "You'd have to ask Morrissey that. There's got to be a story there, and maybe one day it will be told."

The iconic British band formed in 1982 and split five years later, with frontman Morrissey going on to enjoy a successful solo career. The group's reunion was said to be a "done deal," but guitarist Johnny Marr's manager has also come forward to shoot down the rumors. "It isn't happening. We are fully focused on preparing Johnny's new album for release and booking shows for 2013," he commented.

Johnny had previously joked to NME that he would reform The Smiths on one condition only - if the current coalition government were to step down. "We won't be reforming this week. Maybe if the government stepped down. If this government stepped down, I'll reform the band. How's that? That's a fair trade, isn't it?" he joked.
