Blur bassist Alex James tells The Sun the door was still “very much open” for wayward guitarist Graham Coxon to join them. “As regards the next Blur record, I think something serious will be underway towards the end of the year,” Alex said. “During the last Blur record Graham wasn’t well and he didn’t come to the studio when we were due to start recording. So we started recording without him – maybe we should have waited for him, it was a hard call.”
