MUD, rain and warm beer aside, footballer Joey Barton was a happy man last night after meeting his hero Morrissey at Glastonbury.

Chris Britcher has written an article celebrating the talent of Morrissey and Prince, two of the headliners at this years Hop Farm Festival.

The writer discusses how the artists have similarly become disillusioned with the music industry. He also mentions how both artists sometimes upset their fans (the Solo t-shirts get a mention) and how both abstain from eating eating meat (Prince is vegan).

John Reed writes:

Billy Bragg has posted the Guardian's recent non-story regarding Morrissey's lack of record deal on his Facebook page along with the mocking comment: '"England is mine and it owes me a living" Apparently not.'

After a debate on his page, with most of his fans taking joy in Morrissey's apparent misfortune, Bragg clarified his position:

"I'm not having a pop at Mozzer, simply want to highlight the situation faced by artists who are lucky enough to have long careers. Fact is we shouldn't rely on record companies to do the work for us. In the world of internet connectivity, we should be getting together to work out a new way of getting our music heard."​
