      Scarlet Ibis was in the studio. I hope she didn't break the seat, the Ed Sullivan theater is old, you know?

      Yes !!! What a lovely voice and band ! However does anyone find the end of this song just kind of falling off .......... I mean like Moz could have added another verse .
      Anyone know if he did another song after the credits rolled . One just for the audience ?

      Strange drum kit ! Any stick beaters on here that can explain it ?
      Two bass drums ? One little tom ? Massive tilted Drum (never seems to get used) ? The Freddie Mercury gong ?
      It looks very simple and un-balanced also the previous drummer played on a similar kit does that mean the drummer has no say in the kit he plays and its a case of a stage fashioned kit ?
      Not sure but at the opening part was that the house band ? His kit had everything.

      I absolutely love this song and Morrissey, as usual, sounds and looks stunning! I wish he had been the only guest with a small interview, but...oh well...I'm still going to sleep a happy lady tonight!

      thx for the video, as always, if he goes on talkshow and play a song or 2, what to choose

      It sounded mellow, only the last 15 sec.

      again, I'm fond of 2011 version of his Visconti session in the studio ' the Kid's a Looker'

      anyway good PR

      Nice performance. Looked great actually. Did he deliberately change the ending or slightly mess it up? I do wish Letterman had asked him about Bowie's return to the fray...

      Wonder why he made the sign of the cross at the end? Has he done this before?

      The drum cover star is Steve Cochran ~



      ~ the American actor from the early 1950s after whom Morrissey was named.

      A clue to why he made the sign of the cross? He is a practicing Catholic? Or better yet, a Mozfather... a clergyman. But where is the priest suit? At the cleaners?

      Not trying to pick on you Stoned, but the use of the term form when describing Moz's performance has been bothering me for years. And I am in an ornery mood... so I am going to comment on this Mozworld idiosyncrasy. I know Moz hates the word performance. So loyal fans--not all--use the term form instead. But it isn't a formation. It is a performance. He is not a piece of clay molded into form. He is a performer entertaining an audience.

      Pic obviously taken before manscaping was in vogue. Get that man a waxing appointment asap, please!
