David Cameron Goes to War With The Smiths


Out of this small incident--which centers around Johnny Marr saying that he doesn't want British Prime Minister David Cameron to listen to recordings of The Smiths--will come the reunion of the band. At least, that's what I think.

It all reminds me of New Jersey governor Chris Christie and his unabashed love of Bruce Springsteen. For years, Springsteen snubbed him because they are political opposites. When Hurricane Sandy hit, Springsteen and Christie sort of reached a truce.

That probably won't happen with Cameron and Marr and Morrissey. What might happen is this--Marr's promise to reform the band when the coalition government eventually fails in Britain might open the door to a reunion of sorts, one that probably won't involve drummer Mike Joyce.

Then again, maybe not.
