Blur In Legal Battle

Bassist ALEX JAMES was desperate to reunite BLUR for the upcoming LIVE 8 gig in London - but instead of rocking out together, they are suing each other.

The Britpop hitmakers are at the centre of a bitter legal spat, and James is devastated their relationship has descended into hostility.

He says, "We're suing each other. It's a shame really. I thought we might all get together again for Live 8 and try and save the world but no."

However, James' bandmate DAMON ALBARN has expressed his disdain for the predominantly white line-up at the concert, recently scathing, "Why is the bill so damn Anglo-Saxon?"

Live 8 aims to raise awareness of poverty in Africa and appeal to western leaders to eliminate debt in developing countries.

That's exactly why Damon's jealous of Noel and Liam: they butt heads all the time, but still manage to pull themselves together and lead Oasis forward. And to think that I always believed Damon to be the serene one... but oh well, it's life. Tragically.
