Johnny Marr firm on Smiths reunion

Johnny Marr sighs, and stresses again: No Smiths Reunion:

If people get genuinely upset and frustrated that four men that last played together 25 years ago are doing other things, then those people need to go and find a hobby. They really do. If the band only split up two years ago it might be a different matter, but 25 years? Come on. It’s a long time. If you like The Smiths, the records, photographs and memories are all plenty to be getting along with.
And besides, what would be the point of booking Smiths reunions dates? These days, Morrissey only has to spot a gig coming up in his Google Calendar for him to require a lay-down and a course of Lemsip.
