Graham Coxon's Blur Fun
Blur guitarist Graham Coxon can't wait to be reunited with his former bandmates for their "fun" summer shows.
Graham Coxon can't wait for this summer's Blur reunion shows.
The singer and guitarist - who released his solo album 'The Spinning Top' last month - is looking forward to regrouping with his former bandmates later this year because touring alone can get lonely.
He said: "I think the shows will be just be fun! This has been the hard work really, these dates on my own. I love making big noises. These solo shows I'm doing now are pretty humble. The sounds you make on an acoustic guitar - it's a high maintenance instrument. You have to tickle it comfortably. And then the electric ones you can bang and the sound will go on forever. I enjoy them both."
Meanwhile, as the band increase their rehearsals from once a fortnight to daily sessions, the 40-year-old musician says he is having no problem remembering the melodies for their classic hits.
He said: "They never go anywhere. I'm a bit like that, I'm just straight there. I'm a bit photographic in many ways.
Blur - also consisting of Daman Alban, Alex James and Dave Rowntree - are due to headline several summer festivals, including Oxegen, T in the Park and Glastonbury.
