Morrissey supported my decision to go solo: Chrissie Hynde on embracing life alone
- Manchester Evening News
“Morrissey’s been a real support,” says Chrissie. “He really encourages me in the right way – I look up to him because I like the way he does things.
“He’s very mindful; he won’t even play on a bill if he doesn’t like one of the artists. Whereas I’m kinda the opposite – I’d play a garden shed, and that puts out a negative message that you’re not important.
“I think he never wanted to be out of his band either – he loved being in a band. So maybe misery loves company, and if there’s anyone who would be a purveyor of that, it’d be Morrissey! He wants me to walk the plank with him!”
