I agree Mcrickson, the distinction being crucial that if he chose to work with Marr again that would presumably be a musical choice of working with a new/old collaborator whereas a Smiths reunion would surely be a contrived move for a fat wad.I voted 'no.' HOWEVER. I can't see how it'd be a bad thing if Morrissey and Marr would write new music together. Not necessarily even to tour, just studio work. Then, if Moz chooses to keep touring solo, he could add these songs to his set if he so chose.
Although you wouldn't being seeing the Smiths you'd be seeing 4 middle aged guys who hadn't played together for 30 years playing songs they probably had to re-learn for the gigs.This question is more nuanced than "yes or no". I said yes, assuming that they would rejoin and do a 10 or 20 city tour and that's it. I don't want them to write new music...it won't really be the Smiths. I'd just love to see them preform all those great songs one more time.
He doesn't have a problem with Morrissey, you dolt. You act as if it's 1988 and the Smiths are still freshly broken up. If the Smiths reunited, it'd be Joyce who'd have to come in and put down his drum track alone.He wouldn't even need to talk to Morrissey
Have you spoke you Marr or Morrissey yourself? No? So shut the hell up.He doesn't have a problem with Morrissey, you dolt
Except for the fact that they've EACH individually confirmed that they've kept in friendly contact with each other in recent years. Sure, they don't talk to each other every day, but that hardly means they're as bullheaded towards each other as you are with everyone who disagrees with you. "Stupid rumors and the press." The language in your arguments always makes you sound so convincing.Have you spoke you Marr or Morrissey yourself? No? So shut the hell up.
We have no idea what their relationship is apart from stupid rumours and the press, which are all invalid.
And would that capture the essence of the Smiths? Band members barely able to look each other in the face, recording separately and "reuniting" with people they hate for the sake of money? That's miserable and pathetic, it's not something to hope for.All Johnny Marr has to do is come into the studio and put down his guitar track...
He wouldn't even need to talk to Morrissey or go on tour, just a simple guitar track recording.
But Morrissey isn't working on a different project. No-one is prepared to fund his project - a new album. When/if Marr steps into the fold, they will attract offers from every record company in the land. Morrissey desperately needs Marr (or another accomplished songwriter) for his project to continue.Morrissey & Marr are cordial with each other but they don't need a reunion, they are both working on different projects. Andy & Mike have been non-entities for 25 years... the whole idea of a "Smiths reformation" is ridiculous.
Peter, we've run these polls before where the options have been a Smiths reunion or a Morrissey/Marr reunion, and the latter wins by a long chalk. People would much rather see Morrissey and Marr do something, than a Smiths thing.Suprised to see the vote leaning heavily to 'yes'.
These endless reunions of every group that ever existed and where atleast 50% of the original personel are still alive, have never produced anything of any worth. (I guess this is where someone will come up with an example to prove the contrary).
