Morricone 2010 interview mentions 'Dear God'

Ennio Morricone Interviewed: "Compared To Bach, I'm Practically Unemployed" - The Quietus


Did you meet Morrissey before working on some of the strings for Ringleader Of The Tormentors?
EM: I didn’t meet him personally, I spoke to the producer Tony Visconti before starting but you know, he did not use what I did for the album anyway. It was not his style.

Shat myself as I approached for this picture. Y’know, I didn’t wanna be bollocked by him, or worse made feel a spa by himself for asking.

Anyway, I’ve attracted a load of Morrissey blog people to the site as a result of the picture being on the Richter Collective Blog, so if you are one of those lovely people, I must mention that this is Morrissey’s favourite North-Dublin based photo-blog comprised heavily of live-music images and occasional...​

Andrew McGibbon who (as Andrew Paresi) played on Morrissey's first three solo albums praises Smiths fans in a new interview. Andrew has been talking on the 'bookgeeks' website about his new book, I Was Douglas Adams's Flatmate And Other Encounters With Legends. For the full interview and for more information on the book (which includes a chapter about working with Moz on tracks including 'Everyday Is Like Sunday' and 'November Spawned A Monster') go here.

Andrew continues to play drums. He's just finished recording with blues inspired group GoodtimesGoodtimes produced by another erstwhile Morrissey collaborator, Danton Supple.​

Mark Nevin shares the photo from his Facebook artist page:

Here is an old picture from my kitchen in 1991 (around the time we did
Kill Uncle) with Peter Hogg, Kirsty MacColl, me and Morrissey - we
went out to see Suede doing one of their first gigs after this - I
think it was a the White Horse in Camden (maybe not??) - not sure of
the name of the pub - it might be flats now - it was in Camden anyway.​

Thought you might be interested in this picture and its description from Billy Bragg's facebook page.

"I'm quoted in this month's Mojo as saying that, while on tour with the Smiths in Canada in 1985, me and Morrissey went on one of the rides at Kingswood in Toronto wearing Hawaiian shirts and summer shorts. Doubt has been cast on my memory of this event in some quarters and so I have once again plugged in my trusty neg scanner and here we are in 'Canada's Wonderland'. Looks like I was only half right though, as I appear to be wearing a Fats Domino t-shirt and cheap jeans."​
