Paul Weller has said he couldn't care less about bands getting back together.
The Modfather told NME that he wasn't excited by band reunions, the latest of which was a comeback for Pete Doherty's group The Libertines.
Asked how he felt about the Libertines reunion, Paul said: "I don't care. Good luck to them, I liked The Libertines, I loved their first two albums, well the only two albums. But I also liked Pete's last album, the Babyshambles album was great as well.
"It's no good asking me 'what do I think about bands getting back together,' because I don't give a f*** about it really."
But Paul added that he thought there was a lot of good music around currently and was a fan of Jake Bugg and the Arctic Monkeys.
He said: "I love Jake and the Arctics, I think they're both great song writers and they're both saying something about their times and their generation.
"I think [music is] in a pretty healthy state I'd say, there's some great bands around at the moment... There's a lot of good music out at the moment."
