Dylan Jones: "David Bowie - A Life" - all Morrissey Mentions

  • 4,018

The book's premise:
"Drawn from a series of conversations between David Bowie and Dylan Jones across three decades, together with over 180 interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, and collaborators - some of whom have never before spoken about their relationship with Bowie - this oral history is an intimate portrait of a remarkable rise to stardom and one of the most fascinating lives of our time."

Specific mentions:


Bowie and Iggy went to see a screening of Taxi Driver in Berlin, and Iggy was so knocked out by the film that he immediately went and got a Mohawk, a Travis Bickle Mohawk. And Bowie went and saw a bunch of Fassbinder films and decided to grow a mustache. They were creating new identities for themselves, pretending they weren’t rock stars, but rather reluctant émigrés. The NME got wind that Bowie had grown a mustache, and we printed this in our gossip column. On the day this issue hit the streets, I was in the office waiting for a phone call...

Keir has hair & so does Morrissey.

Sadly nothing more exciting than that unless you're a Labourite & you want to lament/decry that we're stuck between a rock & an intersectional hard place. Which I do. :swear :ahhh:

Springsteen plays Morrissey on his SiriusXM radio show - April 8th

Bruce Springsteen had a 90 minute guest DJ slot on SiriusXM today, during which he paid tribute to John Prine (RIP), played a bunch of songs by people like Dylan, Roy Orbison, Bon Jovi - and also "Everyday is Like Sunday" by Morrissey. About which Springsteen said:

“Everybody’s wakin’ up these days with that feeling that it’s Groundhog Day. Every day is like the other day. And that’s like the other day. And that’s like the other day. I get up. I exercise. I exercise some more. I go downstairs. I eat breakfast. I eat breakfast again. Then I sit in front of the fire and I read a little bit. If we’re lucky, we get outside, get around the farm a little bit, Patti and I. And then we get to have dinner. And then we have some more dinner. And then we watch the news. It’s all bad. And we got to bed. And then we get up and we do it again. Looking for a little light at the end of the tunnel.”
