Morrissey: 'The Smiths rumours are frustrating'
Morrissey has grown weary of all the speculation over whether or not his old band The Smiths will get back together.
A few days after his publicist told Rolling Stone that "The Smiths are never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever going to reunite – ever," the legendary British singer said in an interview with Billboard he'd rather the press focus on his 24-year solo career than the four years he spent fronting the seminal English rock group in the 1980s:
"The solo years have been more meaningful to the audiences than the Smiths years, but the press in England only write about me in relation to the Smiths era. This exhausts me. I wish the press were more willing to chronicle these recent tours and the most recent albums. But they won't do it. Their needle stuck at The Queen is Dead. I've sold out large venues throughout five continents this year alone - with incredible reactions everywhere. Yet the press will only blather on about Smiths reunion rumours. You can well imagine the frustration. Thank God I have a strong chin."
