Julian Casablancas: "I very much enjoy playing with The Strokes"
The Strokes frontman has spoken out about his feelings towards the band's back catalogue.
Last Friday (17 October) in an interview with Rolling Stone, Casablancas told of how it was "still fun to see people react" to the old songs, but he doesn't "feel anything from it."
"A little while ago, I saw someone perform a cover of some Top 40 song in an empty bar, like he probably just learned it two days ago. He was probably enjoying playing that more than I enjoy playing Last Nite. I just smiled about it."
Following the reports, The Strokes man has taken to Twitter to rebuff them, saying: "There were times with The Strokes where maybe we had some issues, but they are resolved now... I very much enjoy playing with them."

He did, however, recently suggest in a GQ interview that new Strokes material could be on its way. "In January we might meet up and work on some ideas. Everyone is psyched. Everything is in a really cool place."
Julian Casablancas now places in Julian Casablancas And The Voidz. Their album is out now.
