The Clash's Mick Jones and Paul Simonon have opening up to Billboard magazine about why they never reunited before or after singer Joe Strummer's untimely death in 2002. Simonon said, "It's a better story at the end of the day that we didn't get back together. We saved all that time and effort by not reforming. It seems like we would have squandered what we'd achieved by reforming. Why do people get together? Why do bands reform? Oh, they're good mates. Well, that's nice. It's usually because of a financial situation that has to be adhered to. Basically, everyone's broke." Jones continued and said, "Our band is an idea as well. It kind of said, `You can do this.' We can say all this now in retrospect and sort of understand it. When we did it, we just did it instinctively with no thought of future significance." They both did confirm that they did make peace with Stummer long before he passed.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Noel Gallagher has officially closed the book on any type of Oasis reunion to take place next year or in the distant future as the band's legendary debut, Definitely Maybe will turn 20 in 2014. Gallagher said, "Yeah, so, ergo, band splits up, band is no more. There is no band. So, no, I won’t be getting involved, anyway. If there is a reunion, I won’t be in it...I’m proud of everything that we ever did. I mean, some songs are pretty shit, and there’s a couple of periods you’d rather forget, but I think on the whole… I think we made three great albums and four good ones, which is not bad out of eight. Kind of a 50 percent record. That’s pretty good, I think. But I’m cool with it. I don’t think there’s any unfinished business. I don’t think that we left anything unsaid, do you know what I mean? It’s like, if you’ve seen [Oasis], then good for you. If you didn’t, then that’s fucking tough shit. I’ve never seen the Beatles. So there you go."  

It has been quiet on the Mastodon front these days, but in a few weeks, the band will enter the recording studio to begin work on their sixth album. Drummer Brann Dailor told Rolling Stone that the band's idea for the album will shock fans. He said, "It's gonna be massive and insane, lots of epic greatness. There will be lots of huge riffs and new directions. It's real weird, real math-y, real straightforward. It's up, down and all around. It's a culmination of everything for the band. The snowball keeps rolling and collecting snow."
