    It is unlikely that they'll get back together. Remember the reasons for the first time they break up? I am sure it is the same.

    Is this for real? I hope this break-up wasn't a set-up.

    I hope that this trio of reunion shows means that they're at least considering getting back together full time. Never got the chance to see them live - and no way will I be able to make any of these European festies...
