Former Blur star Damon Albarn has ruled out a reunion with his ex-bandmates - because they "hate him." The Parklife hitmaker was keen to reunite onstage with Dave Rowntree, Alex James and Graham Coxon, but claims they are too busy with other projects, He says, "Alex is writing books and making cheese and Dave's moving into politics. I've always said if you want to be a musician you have to dedicate yourself to it and do it every day. "I had dinner with the guys recently and it was a laugh but there's no way they want to work with me again - they all hate me. A reunion is not going to happen. "The only reason people would do it is for the money - but I don't need the money.
