Graham Coxon reveals why Blur didn't reunite
Blur guitarist Graham Coxon has explained why the much-feted Blur reunion never occurred.

The band members had previously told NME.COM that they had a week in a studio booked for December, where they would record together as a four-piece for the first time since 2002.

However Coxon explained to NME.COM that when the band met up for a meal before the recording week, they didn’t actually discuss recording, so never followed it up.

"I think people thought, ‘Oh, it’s a bit too much, just jumping into a studio’," he said. "We met for a catch-up and it was great, but there was no real talk of recording. It doesn’t really bother me. I’ve got enough going on to feel happy and fulfilled."

For the full interview with Coxon, and to find out whether he thinks the band will reform again in the future, see next week’s issue of NME, on UK newsstands from next Wednesday (February 6).
