  • I don't think Morrissey filmed the Suedehead video while still a member of The Smiths.

    You'd think that a guy who was part of it would know the date...

  • Nice pictures! I especially like the one of Moz in the cemetery... He looks like he's smiling about something... hmm.

  • Hey friends,

    A bodyguard for Moz?!? I can't believe it. All of the "Morrissey" sightings that are reported here never mention the presence of a bodyguard- EVER! I cannot honestly believe it. I have heard about Morrissey being spotted with an 'enterage' (No I don't mean the band-mates)-- but I really can't imagine Morrissey needing or even wanting a bodyguard.

    Can anyone elaborate further on this topic?

    Sincerely,
    Ken Stavitzke

    Moz wrote this on the walls of the old HS bldg, in the Suedehead video. If you've seen the SH video, you know a bit of the condition of the school in '88. See a picture of the room, as it is now, here: http://www.nationaltrust.org/magazine/archives/arc_news/080102.htm

  • This is the video that pretty much saved my life.

    Being a huge James Dean fan I was elated to find someone, especially a pop star, caring enough to make such a warm and loving tribute. I knew very little of Morrissey at the time this video was released. In fact, I really knew nothing about him.

    When I saw this video for the first time, I cried. I taped it, of course, and watched it over and over just to see the sights. I think it was probably the fifth time after watching that I started to really pay attention to Morrissey. I loved the song, but I hadn't really LOOKED at Morrissey because I was so fascinated by what was around him.

    I went out and bought 'VivaHate' the next day. I played it over and over - just as I had with the Suedehead video. I realised I'd found someone who could relate to my feelings and who also had a passion as deep as mine for Jimmy. In a way, I'd found a new best friend.

    I'm really thankful for the Suedehead video - in many ways. I often thought about what it was like for him to be there and what he went through to make the video. I know that the cold will make your eyes tear up, but I wonder if he was actually tearing up from his emotions as well. I know that when I went to Fairmount, and especially when I visited Jimmy's grave, I was over-whelmed and very emotional.

    Thank you for posting these pictures. They're truly very meaningful in lots of ways. It's really nice that you got to spend time with the Winslows, too.

    I'm very sorry to hear that your friend has passed, but I'm happy that you have such sweet and loving memories of your friend to cling to.
