Andrew Marr (British political journalist and presenter) announced on his breakfast discussion show this morning that Morrissey will be appearing on the programme next week.

It appears that an interview will be taking place, and likely a performance also, as the show is typically played out by a musician in the studio.

His page on the BBC home site can be found here.

Billy Duffy, Cult frontman, remembers his time with Morrissey in the band The Nosebleeds, during a recent interview with Westword blog:

Billy Duffy of the Cult on punk's influence and playing with Morrisey in the Nosebleeds - Denver Westword


So they gave Morrissey a shot, and we did two gigs together. Me and him wrote some songs, and to the credit of the two guys in the Nosebleeds -- Toby Tomanov, the drummer, and Pete Crookes -- we did two gigs and didn't do any old Nosebleeds songs. The only thing we did was keep the name. It was a completely new band.

We did all our new songs, and we did one gig opening for Magazine, which was Howard Devoto of the Buzzcocks' new band, at The Ritz in Manchester. We also did a show for Rabid Records, which was an indie label in England -- because that's what was big at the time, little, independent record labels.

We got one review in the New Musical Express by a famous journalist, who is still going, called Paul Morley. He was a huge Manchester journalist, and he reviewed us. I used to have it cut out, because it was my first review in the papers. I used to have it in my wallet, and it said: "Only their name can prevent them from being an enormous band. So Morley spotted it. Morrissey is unquestionably a genius."

It was very quick thing. It lasted six or seven months, circumstances changed, I moved to London and got another opportunity. It was just unfortunate. But things turned out well for Morrissey and pretty much everybody involved in the whole thing..."

Australian Paul Kelly has been writing and recording hit songs for decades. In an article recounting his career, he acknowledges Morrissey's outstanding way with words -

Paul Kelly reveals the stories behind the songs - The Sydney Morning Herald


"...DANTE, Dickens, Tolstoy and Morrissey knew how to begin. In the middle of the journey of my life I found myself in a dark wood. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. All happy families are alike, all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way. Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking when I said I'd like to smash every tooth in your head. Morrissey has a real knack – nearly every first line of the Smiths' songs is a killer..."

The 50 best British acts right now - The Irish Times


“You don’t like me, but you love me? Either way, you’re wrong / You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.” Never a truer word spoken for a man who supposedly deliberately “courts controversy”, but a musician who continues to make albums that inspire and invigorate, such as last year’s tenacious Years of Refusal. The last great British pop icon? No doubt. LM
