  • I was disappointed to see FOTGTD played tonight; however, Mozzer was in prime form. He was so much more animated and sure of himself than the 2002 performance. The tempo seemed so much more lively. I am very proud:)

    p.s. Is it me or is watching Kilborn just painful? Ah, the things we do for the ones we love.....................

  • when I saw him at the Apollo nyc. Don't get me wrong, standing 10 ft away from him, he still looked remarkably beautiful for 45 and for him - but tonight the camera really did him well. Did he lose a bit of weight? His face looks different, in a good, early-to-mid nineties throwback to that jaw he works. His suit (gucci, i assume)was really fucking hot as well.

    And FOTGTD was a predictable choice, but performed right on-target nonetheless.

  • Kilborn Taping (Score:2, Informative)

    While it was a bit of a disappointment that there was no interview, it was probably for the best because Kilborn is a such a total schmuck! more on that later...

    Morrissey played three songs at the taping. FOTG, I have Forgiven Jesus (to air friday), and Let me kiss You (to air next week).

    I had the privilege of meeting Dean before the taping and he is a REALLY nice guy. Very friendly and outgoing. Got the scoop that Moz and the lads will be playing LA and Santa Barbara in mid Sept. However, while many of you were hoping for a "proper tour" you may not be pleased with the large venue they will be playing at. Say good bye to the beautiful, intimate Wiltern...

    Moz played the three songs for the audience(which was not tonights audience, rather we are friday's audience) and then they held us captive for another hour or so. I closely watched Craig when the cameras were off; He is such a smarmy egomaniac...he really takes himself way too serious for that dog and pony show he hosts. Anyway, he ordered producers to cut a whole segment of the show when we booed him, as he kept calling Morrissey miserable. He is a jackass.

    Overall it was a great time...

  • A few years back, I remember on more than one occassion where Craig would reference the Smiths as being a favorite group, he would play snippets of some of their songs. Interesting how the tide has turned, or is he more a Smiths fan than a Moz fan? He really does seem like a jerk from what I've read. Moz would be better suited for Conan's show, based on his T.V. persona. What would Conan say about Moz?...

I couldn’t stop starring 'cos I didn’t know if they were wearing tie's or very skinny scarves... wonder why they did that? hmmm.. oh well another thing to add to the mystery of it all.
    Boy, moz looked like he was shaking ants out of his trousers and stepping on them. Of course he could have been doing that or dancing "la cucaracha" hehe!
    Great performance, looked very pleased and fashionable! *HE LOOKED YUMMY! I WANT TO DIP HIM IN CHOCOLATE*

    I'm a bit mopey right now 'cos if the rumor is true about him passing on by California in September I swear I will cry until eternity! I'll be leaving on the 4th and won't be home for that whole month! Its so unfair, I want to cry~

  • Did anyone else cringe during the five questions segment when Kilborn told Marlee Maitlin's (sp?) interpreter to sing a line from a Morrissey song (Suedehead) as they'd discussed, and he replied that he'd thought Kilborn had meant a song by the Cure?


    But Morrissey was wonderful! He looked fantastic, and was in far better spirits than he was back in 2002 (and no wonder!). I had hoped for an interview too, but perhaps it's best that there wasn't one, since it seems there may be some lingering resentment regarding the cancellations in May (at least, to me it seems as though Kilborn was a bit less cloying this time around and a bit more bitter in his mockery).

  • Mozzer had as much swagger last evening as I’ve seen from him in quite some time…he was beaming and it was beautiful to see!

    Like everyone else, I was hoping for an interview (despite Craiggers less than adequate questioning)…but alas, I suppose we shall take what we can get. Glad to see from posts above that it appears we will be getting two more songs out of this (jesus & LMKY) as opposed to just one.

    As for Craiggers, I wouldn’t mind him playing on/making fun of the typical Mozzer “miserable” stereotype…but c’mon, if you’re gonna drudge the stereotype up, actually be FUNNY, WITTY, or COMEDIC with it! I’m certain us devotees and Mozzer himself can deal with him taking the piss out of us, but when Craiggers continues down the same beaten, dull path…it does send some mixed messages and make one curious as to what he really thinks about Moz…and/or severely question his comedic abilities.

    The performance itself, as noted above, Mozzer exuded so much confidence it was quite breathtaking! He looked sharp, sharp, sharp! The whole band really shined and seemed proud of what they were doing. They were really sped up in playing the song though…I do think it sounded brilliant, but definitely significantly faster than normal…which I believe changed the dynamic of how Moz layed down his vocals which was also noticeably different than usual. Not in a negative way really mind you…but this was especially apparent on the closing repetitive lines of the song “he stole all hearts away..a-hay..a-hay”.

    The new guitarist Jessie certainly seemed adequate for the job. Where was Alain severely missed? THE BACKING VOCALS!!! Mikey and Boz doing the backups was glaringly not good. Again, overall I LOVED the song and this didn’t significantly hinder it…however, Alain is far more competent with the backing vocals and would have made it that much better. I loved seeing the increased enthusiasm and energy from Deano on the drums…you could even see him shouting along to the song sans mic! Seeing him at The Apollo in May and last night have certainly helped altar my initial thoughts of him. He looks much better and is hitting the drums with much more fervor.

    Impatiently awaiting for this evening!!!

  • Anybody else think that Boz's tommy gun guitar was totally kick ass?

    Anyway... As nearly everybody else has said, Moz looked absolutely delicious. I was also disappointed that there was no interview, but at the same time kind of relieved... I have a gut feeling that Morrissey knows very well that Craig is really an egotistical bastard. I mean, Craig, you're a really attractive man, but get over yourself, and express your fondness for the Morrissey songs that do not happen to be singles from Viva Hate! So, ehh, I'm grateful for Moz's appearance on the show, but I just wish he was taken more seriously as an intellectual artist and not just some antidepressant-popping, laughable performer. If Craig were a true fan, he wouldn't be so quick to dismiss Morrissey as such a depressing, predictable character who happens to possess a beautiful, unique voice. Obviously, the great majority of us think more of Moz than that... Or, I would hope so.

  • It sounded like Morrissey was searching for notes during the first couple measures...possibly due bad studio mix. Whoever mixed the sound had the keyboard up to high. And there were a few missed notes in the lead part. I kept my eye on Morrissey thinking he might throw an "omg" look but he was stalwart and stiff upper lipped about it.

    I think the energy was great, but the presentation looked like it was meant for a theatre stage rather than a television soundstage...too cramped and too restrained. Give the man room to do his thing. The hand gestures need some spicing up. Maybe a few cupped palms upward like Matlin signed for the old cohonas in the "we are the pretty petty thieves" line.

    I was impressed that they showed a bit from the MEN performance of the song.

    As for the rest of the Kilborn clucking, if he's a fan, perhaps he feels he's poking fun of himself with all the "miserable", "gloomy" jabs. It sounded like he had listened to I Have Forgiven Jesus a few times though as he knew the "Thursday is Pathetic" line. I couldnt bear the sound of those morons singing. Like "Everyday is Like Sunday" is the only song the staff know...and the guy sand "Monday". The best line of the whole bit was when they announced after that catterwauling that Matlin had left the building.

    I am wondering if the decision not to interview came from the Moz camp?
    Can't wait to see the next bit tonight.

  • I'm a drummer so maybe I noticed more but Dean on the 2002 tour was a bore to watch play. He hit way too soft and slow (rumor has it Moz asked him to play that way for that tour). Then Quarry comes out and he plays a we bit harder and more or less better. But fucking hell did anyone else notice how much he ROCKED on Kilby? He is hitting hard - and playing FAST! Fast sounding Moz??? That's been unheard of since the 1999 tour.

    Maybe Moz gave him permission to rock for the night - or maybe this next Quarry tour will be more upbeat? Who know....all I know is that was an amazing performance....
