Damon's Graham Regret
BLUR frontman DAMON ALBARN insists ousted guitarist GRAHAM COXON is himself to blame for the fact he's no longer in the band - but despite that they pair are still good pals.
The OUT OF TIME hitmakers - who have recently released their seventh album THINK TANK - dropped the troubled guitarist last year (02) after he failed to show for recording sessions.
But Albarn is relieved the split doesn't appear to have affected their friendship - the pair were reunited at bassist ALEX JAMES' wedding earlier this month (MAY03).
He says, "It was only about communication, it's not about whether we get on with each other. He felt left out and we felt let down, it was a combination of that.
"I would've hoped it would happen to anyone in the band if they'd behaved they way he did initially.
"But all I can say is it was very nice (seeing him) at the wedding and confirmed the feeling we all have deep down that we're lifelong friends."14/05/2003 17:14
