Alex James discusses Blur split and reunion

Alex James shot to fame as the bass player of the 1990’s Britpop band Blur but since the band split and went their own separate ways, James has become less involved in music, as he has turned his hands to cheese making. However, Blur do come together from time to time for reunion gigs, which is not as easy as it may sound.

James explained, “Pulling the band back together is like reassembling the A-Team for one last job. I'm a cheesemaker now. I did meet the chef James Martin at the Nantwich International Cheese Show this year but I have to say it wasn't quite the same as sitting between Prince and Helena Christensen at the aftershow party in 1995. As much as we loved Blur, if you do anything day in, day out for 15 years, it becomes a job. We all needed to go our separate ways and do other things with our lives.”
He added, “Now when we play together, it's for the joy of it, like in our early days. I'm so proud of what my bandmates have achieved. David Rowntree, our drummer, is about to qualify as a barrister. He's also an active Labour Party member. Graham Coxon has always been one of my best mates and he's got a new record coming out. And Damon Albarn has had massive success with Gorillaz and all his collaborations.” Blur are set to receive the Outstanding Contribution to Music Award at the Brit Awards, which take place tomorrow night at the London O2 Arena.
