Blur reunion 'very possible', but don't hold breath

Albarn does lunch, talks Blur with Coxon
When Damon Albarn isn't doing Monkey operas, Gorillaz and The Good The Bad And The Queen he might well be thinking about doing a Blur reunion. Now, after an "enjoyable lunch" with Graham Coxon – the one band member who might oppose a reformation – Albarn's up for it…
"It's very possible I'll go back to Blur, it really is very possible," Damon Albarn told the BBC. "The truth be known Graham and I have been hanging out together a bit. He's great, it's fantastic to get my old friend back. So it's good but I can't really say any more than that."
Graham Coxon left Blur in 2002, and - after recording 2003's Think Tank without him - Albarn stated he "felt uncomfortable" about continuing as a band.
A bit busy
It really wouldn't surprise MusicRadar if Blur did reform at some point. But, seeing as how Damon Albarn's opera, Monkey: Journey To The West, is on its way back to London and a new Gorillaz album hangs in a "halfway finished" balance, we don't recommend holding your breath.
Oh, and let's not forget that Coxon is currently recording with Pete Doherty. Maybe next year, then?
