      I think Andy Rourke has had too much of the high life recently. Going by the photo of Rourke he looks a bit odd, his teeth look strange.
      Presumably the 'high life' to Andy Rourke means getting 'high' on drugs.

      That dog is a 'status symbol' it's saying I'm rough, I'm tough, don't mess with me. I guess Rourke and Marr are both hard and from working-class roots which is trendy these days.

      I find those kinds of dogs very frightening.

      Pretty sure it's just a cute old dog with a grey muzzle that probably doesn't intimidate anyone but the most unstable of Morrissey fans, and I'm going to assume the lot of you using said dog as a conversation starter to complain about how shitty/lame/uncool/insecure/(insert insult) you think Andy Rourke is must be a lot of presumptuous, petty, gossiping fishwives wearing Morrissey's chip on your own shoudlers.

      Stop trying to live vicariously through the man. This is getting super creepy!

      I think Johnny Marr uses "Just for Men" hair dye, his hair looks jet black. Johnny Marr's hair looks stuck on like a legoman.

      A bit of a shame that so much focus has been so shallowly placed on Johnny and Andy's appearance/aging. You can hear the affection for one another and how that influenced their almost-telepathic musical collaboration in the Smiths. It's too bad they couldn't synch schedules so Andy could play on part of The Messenger.

      Well said Jamie !!!!! I could care less about hair color / accents (Andy doesn't sounds American to me, he does have a slight accent) what I want is the stories . And my o my how they deliver . Love it !

      It seems like people care more about dogs than people on here. Dogs like the one in the photo have been used in aggressive acts. Ask anyone who has been attacked by a dog. Back in the day African-Americans on their protests the police and others set dogs on them. I got no time time for Andy Rourke or his dog! Morrissey is way nicer then him in all ways not just in looks.
