Weller doesn't care about reunions

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."
