|In "Headful of Heroes" (NME, Sept. 16, 1989), Morrissey
listed the following:
In an entry for "Absolutely Vile":
"The Cure, a new dimension to the word 'crap'."
#12 in the list of "Election Promises":
"McDonald's bombed and Robert Smith popped (both actions require a similar
voltage of explosives)."
From Claudia: Robert
Smith of the Cure hates the poor Mozzer with a plastic passion... some quotes
of his are:
"Morrisseys so depressing, if he doesnt kill himself soon, I
probably will" and
"If Morrissey says not to eat meat, then Im going to eat meat;
thats how much I hate Morrissey."
. . .
Taken from a Robert Smith Q&A in Rolling Stone (Nov. 1997):
Who has more rabid fans, the Cure or Morrissey?
Id much rather have our fans than his our fans are generally quiet,
well-spoken and friendly and not pretentious in the slightest. Hopefully, that reflects
the nature of the Cure. Despite what the mainstream media would have you believe,
were a very natural group. The people who have been in the group over the years have
been there because they have been friendly with each other. There has been no sense of
purpose other than making music together. I think if Morrisseys fans reflect what
Morrissey is like as an individual or the way he projects himself as an individual then
... uh ... Ill stop there.
