LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Blur bassist Alex James has told the Sunday Times that guitarist Graham Coxon is considering rejoining his former bandmates for a new album.
“I’ve been talking to Graham and there might be some good news,” James said. “It’s by no means in the bag, but it looks quit promising. Maybe the time is right. We’ve always left the door open for him, so that’s what I’m hoping for.”
Coxon left Blur during the “Think Tank” recording sessions in 2002 and has only been in occasional contact with the band since. He recently told Pitchfork, “Would it be a bit scary? What would the dynamic be in a studio? Would I have to do promotion? Would I tour? You know, it’s a lot of thinking. So I guess I still mull around and think about it every now and then.”
Rumors have been circulating about a final Blur album, to start recording when frontman Damon Albarn finishes touring in February with his side project The Good, The Bad And The Queen. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
