Morrissey has once again derided the talk of him be offered £5m to reform the Smiths and play live once again.

As previously reported on Gigwise the members of The Smiths were reportedly offered the big money payday to appear at this year’s Coachella festival.

Mozza denied the rumours at the time teliing Uncut that he’d rather “eat his own testicles” that reform the band.

In an interview with The Times Morrissey revealed that he doesn’t considered the other three Smiths to be his friends and that they don’t deserve to have the attention he has earned himself.

He said of the proposed comeback: “I’m not placed on the Earth to torment ex-musicians. My life is gratifying at the moment musically, so why become part of the Smiths again? What’s the point?”

“I feel as if I’ve worked very hard since the demise of the Smiths and the others haven’t, so why hand them attention that they haven’t earned? We are not friends, we don’t see each other. Why on earth would we be on a stage together?”

There is a light that has gone out.
