If you ask me this story was just a half baked, half arsed PR media stunt load of old crap to create brand awareness for the new Greatest Hits LP; they recycled the old story about Moz's apparant millions he was offered to do Coachella '06.
I saw the follow up They-are-not-reforming article on NME.com and of course at the bottom it gave the release date for the Sound of the Smiths.
Shame. They almost had us!

      The Smiths should never reform. Ever.
      The good old Sun....
      What's next? Morrissey has actually eaten his "private bits" and the band are ready to reform?

        The Coachella reunion is now like the urban legend of the guy who had his arm taken off by an 18 wheeler when he stuck his arm out the window of his car.

        It might happen if they put everybody in little cubicles on stage and they had no idea that the other 3 were within 500 feet of the other.

                    The mere thought of Moz with that second rate no talent is enough to make a person sick.

                    How good can things be for Morrissey if he's hitching his wagon to that clown.

                    Yeah, it certainly is Marr who has nothing to offer.

                            There cannot ever be a Smiths reunion, the same people and attitudes and the band itself as a moment in time has gone, the band and its music is a fleeting moment based on the situation at that point in the universe. Who would want to see all four of those quys trying to recreate the past. What the world wants is for Morrissey and Marr to create a new project together. To me that would be a batch of new songs written only by Morrissey and Marr, or a concert tour of Morrissey and Marr and other musicians of Marr's choice playing bass and drums, billed as Morrissey and Marr, and playing other songs that the Morrissey and Smiths songbook.

                              Also, forget about The Smiths, I want a Morrissey cover album of The Kinks (or a dance cover album of Prince or a Stevie Nicks cover album). Time to ditch your songwriters of the last 16 years, 3 or 4 good songs an album is not good enough for the best singer of my generation.

Thanks for putting the rest of us straight on this silly reunion business. So the Sun made something out of nothing...er, it's a UK Newspaper, we know what they do. They're story was only speculation and they never said it was anything more, whereas you lot rubbish any reunion as though it's FACT. Who's worse, you or The Sun? A reunion wouldn't have to be the end of Morrissey's solo career. It wouldn't even have to last that long. You all seem to think it's either Morrissey solo or The Smiths. He's already singing a substantial amount of his Smiths songs on stage as it is! Yamaha
