... has anybody followed the "John Steed" saga at the Stereophonics message board? I'm not a Phonics buff so I found it by accident. Allegedly there's someone named John Steed (after the Avengers character) who's been posting at that board for about 3 months now. Lately he started dropping some hints here and there to make everybody believe he's Morrissey. Let me tell you that what he call hints aren't hints at all (though they may be for an average Phonics fan, who doesn't know Moz very well), coz this guy has posted messages composed entirely by hugely known Smiths lyrics like Headmaster or Barbarism. He said he was born before 1960, he's from England but lives in Cali, he was famous once and he was in a band (someone asked him if he was Ozzy Osbourne!). Let's also say this guy has studied Moz's way of expressing for a long time. Now the phonics message boards is beng taken over by people waiting to talk to this guy. If you want to have some fun check out the link below. My humble opinion is that many people have too much free time in their hands, lucky bastards.
