BLUR guitarist GRAHAM COXON has left the group, according to tabloid reports.

In recent months, Blur have been writing and recording their new album in London and Morocco.

According to today’s The Mirror newspaper (August 29), tensions within the band between him and singer Damon Albarn have led to a series of rows, and Coxon walking out.

However, the band’s management are stressing that Coxon is not in the studio because he is working on a solo album. A management representative told the paper: “There has been no bust-up. Graham isn’t in the studio with Blur. He is putting the finishing touches to his own album which is out in October.”
