So, do you think they could get back together?
Could they? Is the spark still there?
If they wanted to, the spark would be there. I think musically they could do it. But I don’t think those guys are ever going to make another record [together]. I think they’ll do shows because it would be too hard to pass up the money. But I don’t think they’re going to make another album. And the longer they wait, the harder it’s going to be.
