Dave Rowntree Sets The Record Straight

Dave Rowntree is not planning to quit Blur after their initial reunion shows if the rest of the band decide to continue working together, as was suggested in an article written by The Independent last week.

In a statement issued to the forum on Blur's official website, Rowntree said: “I want to set the record straight following the bizarre and inaccurate piece in The Independent today. As anyone who follows the band will know, we all have interests outside Blur. I am currently at law school, about to sit the exams for the first part of my training as a solicitor. I am fitting my studies around our preparation for the shows in the summer. I have one more year of academic training to complete, but if we decide to do more as Blur, I will obviously continue to fit my studies around the band and not the other way round. Whatever else I do, first and foremost I am a musician”.
