    Blur, as a band, engaged in therapy before the members agreed to get back together in 2009. It was Blurapy!

    Guitarist Graham Coxon, who quit the group in 2002, admitted, "Although we shoved it all aside when we got back together, I realized that passions were still slightly high about it all. In those years since, I probably said a few stupid things in the press, because the circumstances of why we weren't together as a four-piece were quite unclear. We'd met a couple of times – one was some mediation thing, where we had to go over stuff that was difficult. We were all raw and hurt by it, for quite a while. To be honest, the last couple of years when I was in Blur, it wasn't like we were good friends, like we could ring each other up. Everybody was going through management and we all had our own lives, our own problems."

    

Sounds like Blur was pretty dramatic for a while. Glad it's behind 'em and they solved their s**t. Hey, if it helped Metallica...

    Blur's 'The Magic Whip' is released April 28th, 2015.
