Mike Joyce Says The Smiths Reunion Could Still Still Happen

January 27, 2013 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

The former drummer of the Smiths says he still thinks a reunion is possible. Mike Joyce, who sued his former bandmates Morrissey and Johnny Marr over missing royalties in 1989, says that he thinks all four band members could come to an agreement if they got in a room together.

He told The Sun (via NME), “I actually had a dream that Morrissey, Johnny, Andy (Rourke) and me were all in the same room and we actually agreed to do a tour. Morrissey said, ‘What song shall we open with?’ and we replied in unison, Hand In Glove. That’s what the show should open with. Then I woke up laughing.”

Joyce noted that he believes the band The Smiths would sound better than ever, saying, “It would sound great. I’m a better player than I was. Morrissey’s voice is still incredible, Johnny is playing great. With the equipment and PA systems 30 years on, if we got up on stage and played, it would sound incredible.”
