Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson dragged former BLUR star Damon Albarn to watch his ex-bandmate Graham Coxon's solo gig in a desperate bid to reform the band - and is devastated it backfired.

The OH MY GOD singer recently met his idol in Texas, and convinced him to attend Coxon's gig nearby.

Albarn enjoyed the concert, but told a disappointed Wilson that Coxon quit Blur in 2002 following an alleged musical dispute over the direction of their album THINK TANK, and would never return to the group.

Wilson says, "We went to see Graham together. It was a beautiful moment, and it taught me something about just how far I'd come from being a nobody. It's just a shame Graham and Damon can't reform Blur."
