Two years ago it almost happened, and now next April it really looks like it will happen. I know most of you don't care, but I do. The Smiths are about to play one show and one show only at Coachella. Two years ago they were offered about $6M for one show, and they turned it down. This time though the offer is up to $10M. I don't know where the organizers are going to get that kind of money unless for the rest of the show it is just going to be one big Karaoke fest. That would be cool but the waiting list would be lengthy.
The sticking point in this whole reunion thing has always been Steven Patrick Morrissey but apparently he wouldn't mind one more big taste of the fame. It is not really about the money as in needing the money. It is about the money as in they want a whole bunch for an ego thing. Whatever. I don't really care. I do know that if they play, you can bet my big, fat, butt will be right there. You can come join me if you like, but I must warn you that desert heat and I really don't get along well, so make sure you bring plenty to hydrate me, and I'm not talking about water unless it is an ingredient in whatever else you are giving me.
