Someone Asked Ely Buendia When the Next Eraserheads Reunion Would Be; Here’s His Reply

Everyone knows that an Eraserheads reunion is far from likely now but many won’t stop dreaming of that possibility. And so, despite repeated explanations by the band members regarding their disbandment all those years ago and having already had a grand reunion concert last 2016, former frontman Ely Buendia still finds himself bombarded with questions about when they would get to play together again.

On Twitter, Ely responded to three fans with sarcastic quips.

“‘Pag tumakbo si Leni [Robredo],” he told one.

“‘Pag nag-reunion ang IV of Spades,” he told another.

And to the third fan who asked him what should happen in order for the iconic Pinoy band to reunite?

“Jesus should come back,” he replied.

It is not new knowledge that the Eraserheads members have a strained relationship with one another. Ely himself reiterated this during a guesting he made in the podcast “Wake Up With Jim & Saab” hosted by Cheats members Jim Bacarro and Saab Magalona-Bacarro last March 2021, wherein he explained that while the band had “a very, very good working relationship,” they were never exactly close friends.

He also admitted feeling frustrated about how fans would direct their anger towards them for breaking up the band. “It’s about fans… I was kind of sick of fans saying, when the Eheads broke up, ‘You’re friends, you shouldn’t have [broken] up. You made us feel bad.’ I was sick of that,” he said.

Raymund Marasigan agreed with Ely on his own podcast later on and revealed they were all never close in the first place.
