Taz: Courtney Taylor-Taylor (Dandy Warhols) on Morrissey (March 24, 2024)

[originally posted in the Strange/unexpected Moz references? thread]

I file this under "unexpected", as positive mentions seem so rare these days:

Courtney Taylor-Taylor of the Dandy Warhols had this to say when asked for his opinion on Moz:

"Wow, that is a complicated question for how few words are in it. As a lyricist, he is one of the greatest ever. As an icon he is one of the greatest ever. As a person he is up there with Glenn Danzig as far as having a huge target for people to take potshots at but at the end of the day, the world is a way cooler place for having Morrissey."

How do you grapple with cases in which there are conflicting views and grey areas? Does Morrissey’s embrace of far-right political groups such as For Britain have to be weighed on some kind of moral scale against Johnny Marr’s progressive values, to work out if the Smiths are cancelled? Should Benjamin Zephaniah be shunned for being violent towards a former girlfriend, or is he excused because he was the one who wrote about it, expressing regret and the need to be better? Before long, my list of factors had spiralled into a tangle of nuances and contradictions.
