The Smiths Definitely Not Reuniting

Sources from band member say there's no chance of reunion

Sources close to both members of the band and Coachella have denied that there has been any new move to reunite the group for next year's festival.

A British newspaper had claimed The Smiths were considering burying the hatchet for next year's event.

Johnny Marr, guitarist says there is no foundations to recent stories that his old band The Smiths are to reform. He's committed to The Cribs and refuses to be drawn on Smiths reunion.

Morrissey has previously claimed he was offered a near £40 million for just him and Smiths guitarist Marr to reunite for the Californian event in 2006.

A new double-CD compilation spanning the band's career, 'The Sound Of The Smiths', is released on November 10.
