Phil Manzanera has urged fans not to give up hope of a reunion just months after he declared the band was over for good.

The group originally split in 1983 after 12 years together but reformed in 2001, without Brian Eno, and has toured occasionally ever since.

But in November last year, guitarist Manzanera shocked fans by announcing there would be no more comebacks, insisting “our job is done”.

However, Manzanera has now spoken out to clarify his comments and assure fans another reunion is not out of the question.

“I have said over the last year I thought our job was done with Roxy Music. There are no plans to do anything at all (but) the great thing about being in a band like Roxy was no one told us what to do,” he tells Britain’s The Independent newspaper,

“If I called up (bandmate) Bryan (Ferry) tomorrow and said, ‘I’ve got this great tune, how about we play a thing, whatever’s gone down?’ and if he said ‘Oh, I love that’… When people say it’s all over well no, it’s only over when you’re 13 foot down when you’re dead and buried and then you definitely can’t come back… there are no rules.”
