via Simon Goddard's blog, Lady Gaga calls Morrissey "my buddy"

"Because we were in Manchester, and since her album was called The Fame, I asked if she agreed with the words of a certain local bard that “fame, fame, fatal fame… can play hideous tricks on the brain.”

“Yes. I love that song,” Gaga replied in her Manhattan robo-drawl. “Sometimes when I’m on stage I do this thing with my voice where I go… fame, Fame, FAME! Which is sort of my homage to that.” At the time I wasn’t sure if Gaga was bluffing (with her muffin) until three months later when another interviewer asked the name of her “favourite celebrity with style.” After a few seconds pause she answered, “Morrissey.” Since then she’s Tweeted Smiths lyrics and has even alluded to conversations with Morrissey who she described with alarming casualness as “my buddy”.

So, there you have it. Lady Gaga is an actual “apostle”. An uncanny postscript to this, and the reason her Brits performance brought this all back, is my regret that I forgot to give her my intended gift - a spare copy of the Jobriath Lonely Planet Boy compilation. I’d reasoned as a Bowie fan and New York art junkie that if she hadn’t heard his stuff she may like it. Watching her play Telephone at the Brits makes me think she would have, or possibly already does. Close your eyes and it’s like listening to a Jobriath ballad as sung by Etta James."

A man who stole a guitar from Johnny Marr has been to court. Full story in my local paper.

Former Morrissey band member Michael Farrell was on American Idol last night. He's part of the American Idol band.

It was quite neat and surprising to see him on TV.

Looks like Johnny Marr is among several guitarists that worked with Line 6 on some kind of signature pre-sets for a new amp model they have out (Spider IV?). Seems some other great guitarists helped out as well, and many questionable ones too. Haven't tried it, no idea how it sounds, but noteworthy because (to my knowledge) this is the first time Johnny has had his name on any guitar product.
