Damon Albarn "To Retire" Gorillaz After World Tour?
He will see "how he feels in January" to determine their future...
The former Blurstar claims that he "can't keep going at this size and pace" and admitted that the Gorillaz project has become more successful than he first thought it would be.
The Gorillaz tour, which ends in New Zealand later this month, could be Albarn's last as he has confessed that he's scheduled a "period of reflection an sobriety" to consider the future of the cartoon collective.
According to the Toronto Sun, Damon stated: "It's been an unqualified success - bizarrely... But... we always think that when we get to a point where we've achieved something that it's time to stop, don't we?…"
He continued: "We'll see how we feel in January (after the tour). A period of reflection and sobriety... I couldn't keep going at this size and pace."
Albarn's fellow Gorillaz collaborator, Jamie Hewlett added: "This would be a wonderful point to leave Gorillaz; at the end of this tour, I think... This tour, with these people, is a one-off. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We'll never repeat this."
