    Yeah! but here's a more umm, i guess accurate article about his from smh.com.au

    Savage Garden set to reunite?
    May 22 2003

    If you thought Savage Garden had retired to the pop-music past, it may be time to think again. The band's founder, guitarist Daniel Jones, reckons it's only a matter of time before he and frontman Darren Hayes reunite.

    While there's nothing concrete about the revelation, Jones says the bond between he and Hayes will one day be reconnected.

    It's been almost two years since the band split after five years together and two successful albums that sold 20 million copies worldwide.

    Since then, Hayes has had mediocre success in his solo career while Jones has been involved in studio and production work.

    But as testament to the success of the band, their last single I Knew I Loved You, notched up its 144th week in the American Billboard chart.


    As if that wasn't achievement enough, it is now the longest running single in American chart history, taking the honour from their late 1990s hit, Truly Madly Deeply.

    "It is mind boggling ... I don't think Australia's quite understanding it because we don't understand it," Jones told AAP.

    In addition, Jones this week accepted a record sixth APRA Music Award for the most performed work overseas, for I Knew I Loved You.

    But charismatic frontman Hayes was notably absent from the awards ceremony this year, as he was when Jones collected the award last year.

    Many believe a rift between the two caused the split, while rumours have also suggested the duo no longer speak to each other.

    But Jones said he and Hayes "communicate a little bit" and said the pair's bond, which began nearly 10 years ago, would never be erased.

    "He and I have an amazing, wonderful relationship in the sense that it's a connection that neither of us can quite put our finger on it," he said.

    "We both know it's there and I'm sure we'll both experiment with it again down the track, it's just a matter of time and what to do next."

    But Jones was more cautious about the possibility of the band reforming at any stage.

    "I wouldn't confirm it ... I just know that still, from one country to the next, Darren and I can still, and still do, have some form of connection.

    "It's an honour, it's always going to be an honour. It was a chapter of our lives that will stay with us forever, who knows, maybe we'll touch on it again, maybe we won't.

    "But it's just one of those things that we'll never quite comprehend - the success we achieved."

    Meanwhile, fans will have to content themselves by tracking their solo careers, with Jones currently building his studio and about to launch into more writing - "I've really missed it".

    I liked their first album, but wasn't a fan of the second one. I wouldn't mind seeing them back together though.
