$75 million won't buy a Smiths reunion

Morrissey, it seems, is in pretty good shape–good enough to turn down $75 million. The Moz was offered the sum to do a 50-date reunion tour with The Smiths, and long estranged ex-bandmates Mike Joyce and Andy Rourke weren't even required to be part of the deal. Guitarist Johnny Marr, of course, is plenty busy in his current band Modest Mouse. A similar proposal was made and rejected earlier this year when The Smiths were offered $5 million to reform for Coachella.
