DAMON TALKS OF ‘HORRIBLE HOLE’ IN BLUR WITHOUT GRAHAM

The star is still lamenting the loss of his pal from the band...

DAMON ALBARN has spoken again about his relationship with GRAHAM COXON – saying there’s a “horrible hole in sound” now he’s out of BLUR.

Albarn was recently quoted as saying he’s waiting for Coxon to rejoin the band before thinking about a new Blur record.

Speaking to Radio 1 today, the singer explained the situation. He said: “I grew up with Graham and it’s really confusing when you grow apart from someone who you grew up with. I’ve only got a sister so I did consider him for many years to be like my brother and it’s a real shame that there’s been such a breakdown in communication.

”But as far as playing again live I can’t play any other stuff that he worked (on) without him. I feel that there’s a horrible hole in the sound if he’s not there and obviously if we could get back or move forward to a time when everyone felt comfortable again… I don’t quite understand why there’s such a tension because when we actually meet in a room together, all of us, we all get on fine.”
