Interview: Mike Joyce of the Smiths
VVN Music affiliate Music-News.com recently reported the unconfirmed news that legendary band The Smiths are to reform. They recently had the chance to talk with the group's drummer, Mike Joyce, to get details.
When we asked about the recent rumours and whether the reunion was happening Mike answered tellingly, "No, not at the moment."
"There have been lots of reformations, The Police reformed a couple of years ago and people said that would never happen, Pink Floyd did and people said that would never happen. So who knows really."
On whether he would be involved he said "I think I would and do you know why? The amount of happiness that it would give to so many people it seems criminal not to."
No official word is out as yet but it's just a question of time. Music-News.com predicts that the official announcement will be made within 6 months.
Music-News.com met the lovely chap just prior to his DJ slot at Proud in Camden for 'Panic! A Live Homage to The Smiths' to talk reunion rumours, police confrontations and life after The Smiths.
