Courtesty of an interview in the current bun
It's an interesting, short, piece, especially at the end:
Marr refuses to talk about the 1996 court case which saw Joyce take Morrissey and Marr to court over royalties (Morrissey and Marr took most of The Smiths' recording and performance royalties and allowed ten per cent each to Joyce and Rourke.) He confesses: "I don't like getting too serious. And I don't want to be disrespectful because they were my mates. I have nothing but great fondness for The Smiths. When I left I felt relieved but did it at the right time.
"I last saw Morrissey a couple of years ago and we hung out for an afternoon and it was pretty funny.
"I'm going to be hanging out with and maybe playing with Andy soon and then getting an email now and then off Mozza is nice. People think The Smiths are bad news, especially when we split, but it's not.
"The Smiths were bloody brilliant and I'm eternally proud of that."
Still, I'm not buying the rag.
