No Reunion for the Smiths, Said Morrissey



U.K. modern rock band The Smiths turned down a $5 million offer to reunite at the upcoming Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival in southern Californ

"No, because money doesn't come into it". Morrissey as The Smiths former frontman said firmly commenting on the $5 million offer of the band's reunion addressed to him during a public interview at the South By Southwest Music & Media Conference in Austin Thursday March 16th, 2006.

Morrissey said, "It was a fantastic journey. And then it ended. I didn't feel we should have ended. I wanted to continue. (Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr) wanted to end it. And that was that."

On the other way around, when it comes to his forthcoming album, "Ringleader of the Tormentors," due April 4 via Attack/Sanctuary, the singer admitted that he's writing songs from a good place these days.

Also during the same occasion, Morrissey said that he will support the album with a European tour that includes a six-week run of sold-out shows in the United Kingdom. A North American leg is also expected.
