Johnny Marr has scoffed at online reports that The Smiths will reform, saying he has "got things to do" rather than rejoin his former bandmates.
The guitarist posted a message on his Facebook page after a report on music-news.com that the band, fronted by Morrissey, was reforming for a series of gigs.
Marr said: "Thanks to those with Hearts and Smarts. I don't know where this stuff starts. Not from me. I got things to do. Johnny".
The Smiths came together in Manchester in 1982 and split in 1987 before the release of their last studio album, Strangeways Here We Come.
