Nick P writes:

Michael Stipe, during a particularly rocking REM concert outside of Washington, DC last night, addressed the crowd with "I'm sorry i can't provide more dramatic dialogue for you- I'm not Morrissey" after the band's first song. He went on to say that Morrissey is a "damn fine songwriter" as well as several other admiring lines for Moz. The crowd loved it!
An anonymous person also writes:

Thought readers may be interested in knowing that Michael Stipe mentioned Morrissey on stage the other night. After making an obscure joke before going into a song, Stipe later asked the crowd if he should explain his comment, saying "I'm not Morrissey." He went on for a moment to express admiration for Morrissey as he spoke.

    I know lots of people here really dislike Mr Stipe...but I love him. It makes me feel all tingly to hear him say these things about someone else I admire. That's nice isn't it?

    Why the compliment? Are the rumours true that Stipe and Morrissey are a little closer than just friends?

      Stop all this speculumation about whether Morrissey is a mattress muncher. The thought of him kissing anyone makes me heave.

      If I want to think of anyone getting it on I want it to be me.

          He's obviously only saying these things to get on the front page of Morrissey-Solo.

          I don't know why David T gives him the free publicity.

          At the Brixton REM show, Michael told a story of how he saw the Smiths on the meat is murder tour at Brixton. He said he liked the way Moz used to lean into the crowd - he thought it wa so cool he would steal it, and as you see today when you watch REM live he does 'Morrissey Dip' - Interesting? - Thats all. - JOHN
