      Thanks for posting this. Not quite sure I follow Moz on the culpability of Kate Middeleton ... ? A nice little interview , though , and I thought "Paris" sounded pretty good ...

      Morrissey is going to get so much crap if the British papers pick this one up.

      That was a good interview and a good performance (and I don't even like Paris that much). I expect most ppl think what he said about Kate is far-fetched - but he's right, and he wouldn't say it for no reason.

      good intervieuw

      Morrissey looks tired, time he really takes a year of, going on with his biography, trimming it,
      as He wrote, well I would say rI'd love a 2x 4oo pages book, than a trimmed 5-6oo 1 book

      The person who did the intervieuw had the day of his live, lured him in some issues where he
      knows Morrissey will answer with harsh words, as he did with the Royals

      but just ending with Morrissey touring schedule the past years, too much and it's showing on his face

      Enjoyed this. Morrissey is real in a PR'd-to-death world.
      You Have Killed Me sounded very good, Paris just OK.
      Weird moment at the end of the YHKM clip. What does he say, "Night night"??

      Crazy part: I can assure you a thousand percent when he starts sweating its not the lights, the warm studio or the interview questions, its MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF CHEST PAIN. OMG I'm so sorry. Was he touching his lips a lot? SUCKSTOBEBLIND!!!!!!

      Normal part: For those who haven't seem it yet the full interview makes more sense than the short one. Watch both to witness the power of editing. Morrissey did well. I only cringed at the anorexic part.

      "Night Line" ... the name of the show he was on. Keep up King old boy!

      Agree about 'You Have Killed Me' ~ lovely new plunging phrasing in the vocal nicely complemented the plaintive heavy-ass axe work. Sweet bit of hammond as well.

      Hah - I am getting old, but I never thought Morrissey would do station/programme IDs. Not really useable as a soundbite, though, is it. His stare right before he says it is quite unsettling!

      Think I'll d/l that MP3 of You Have... kindly supplied above.

      He does look tired, but it's a 23 hour flight from England to New Zealand. Even first class can't take away the tiredness.

      I thought Morrissey looked quite relaxed. YHKM was quite blistering hot. He's getting older but still as sharp as a tack.

      Those shoes he was wearing looked quite nice. Were they trainers? I couldn't quite tell.

      Not a bad interview but they kept on (both Moz and Interviewer) about the Royals thing a bit too much. I agree with him for the most part, but then when he says something like he moved overseas because of the Royals it's like "really? grow up..." because you KNOW theres more to a move than that, but its a little embarrassing when he states stuff like that.

      That being said, great performances and I'm psyched I'll see him next week for only the 3rd time ever and nearly 7 years since the last time which was 4 years before the first time ... so it's an extremely rare treat which will be cherished

      What a gutless decision to edit out all the controversial stuff. Really enjoyed this interview, but how cowardly for it to be butchered in case it offends anyone.

      "That's a very strong word, Morrissey".

      Yeah...why play new material when he can just change the syllabic emphasis on old songs. Brilliant!

      Promoting songs that are seven years old. Those record deal offers should roll right in now....
