Blur Shows 'May Be Last For Drummer'

by | 05 March 2009

BLUR drummer Dave Rowntree has claimed he may leave the band when they finish their summer tour.

The Britpop legends recently announced they will be performing several dates in the UK, including two at London's Hyde Park.

However, Rowntree is currently training as a barrister and said he would like to take a job with an East London legal firm when he has fulfilled his musical duties.

"I only went along for a day but then they said I could go in once a week as work experience, just to help out around the office. Now I go in three times a week," he told the Independent.

"Hopefully, I can go and work there when I'm finished with the Blur tour."

BLUR were recently confirmed as one of the headline acts at this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The event, which takes place in Somerset in June, also boasts Bruce Springsteen among its line-up.
