Was struck by Jesse's pristine guitar work during 'This Charming Man' at Hawick Town Hall. Never before have I seen power cords strummed with such aplomb. My jaw fell open at Hawick, and it's going to take more than an A&E junior doctor to relocate it. How consummately I've polished that rough gem of a boy. From skinny Tex-Mex session player with Alanis Morrissette's live band and bit-part with Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the strapping indie pop guitar hero with big manly pecs you see before you today. The man's taking power cords on to a new level, IMHO. And it's not just my opinion either. Boz agrees with me. My drummer, too. And my bassist. You know, that medium-sized man with dark hair? Alain, you say? Alain who?"
I know that's a parody site but it's hard to comprehend exactly WHY Morrissey perseveres with that talentless no-hoper of a session musician. He can't play, he can't write - what do you think Morrissey sees in him that no other human being on the planet sees in him? Well, it can't be potential. The man's almost 40, which is pensionable in the music industry! If you can't write a song at 39, I can't imagine it's suddenly going to click at 45.
