That would have annoyed Noel Gallagher

The lukewarm headline line-up at this year's Glastonbury is now partly explained: they'd nearly landed a Blur reunion, an event which would have pushed any of the top-card names down the league ladder a slot.

Alex James say so:

"Blur very nearly played Glastonbury this year. There was a pang of regret when I heard Damon [Albarn]'s mum had nixed it at the 11th hour.

"I was looking forward to showing off to [his wife] Claire and the kids, but I suppose the important thing was to have been asked, and listening to all that screaming I felt pleased about how things had turned out.”

This, we suspect, explains the Kings Of Leon if nothing else.

wait...did I read that correctly? Blur didn't reunite because Damon Albarn's mother was against it? wha?

"You're not going to that bloody field again, young man. I was three days washing your jeans last time and they still smelled of falafel and cow dung. And how many times have I told you to keep away from that Alex...?"
