    Independent / James Moore: "Morrissey on tour is the last thing Britain needs right now" (July 23, 2022)

    Moz's ticket prices are comparable with other artists of his stature. Not such a waste of money as the 'lockdown' the writer refers to. 24 Trillion spent on a couple of sniffles and a sore throat.

    All good and well but my dogs need walking :)

    Not going very well this, is it? Not a clue.

    Johnny Marr responds to Morrissey's open letter via Twitter (January 26, 2022)

    For me, it's all very sad really. The demise of The Smiths was bad enough, but to see Morrissey and Marr going at each other directly in public like this is the pair of them destroying their own legacy, all that great music, the romance and mythology of their meeting, the songs that meant so...

    Johnny Marr’s favorite Smiths song -and his thoughts on Morrissey’s contribution - Kyle Mullin / YouTube

    At the time when the song was released, I always thought it had been composed on a piano/synth idea and that the 'simple' guitar line had been vamped or improvised over the top. It was only when Johnny did his book tour and demonstrated that it actually started with the creation of the guitar...

    Morrissey Central "WANDA YOUNG, RIP" (December 27, 2021)

    You will barely, if at all, find radio station that plays anything from the 50s or 60s these days. There are a few digital stations that stream them. I was born 1970, so I was raised with the sound of those eras in my house and I still love a lot of that music to this day, even moreso than a...

    Why the hell are any of us still here?

    I remember a few of those names, even met a few of them on the tours back then. I was around more between 2000 - 2003/4, mainly in the old chat room. I miss the chat room, I preferred the real-time interaction and live, quickfire discussion format. I was never really bothered with the main...

    Why the hell are any of us still here?

    God knows, it's force of habit visiting here. Today is the first time I've looked at the forums for years. I miss the chat room of old (circa 2000). I still look at the main news every couple of weeks.

    Great to hear this in full after so long, Dale. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes.

    Peter Doherty talks art, blues and Gibson guitars; mentions Morrissey and Marr - Gibson

    Cemetry Gates was written in Marr's kitchen that way, I think :)

    Stephen Street tweets about "Suedehead" in live set

    yes, I can see both sides of this. I suppose the crux of the matter is whether or not the interpretation of the part is true or sympathetic to the song. I think there's a fine line, especially with bass lines as they do create part of the harmony of the music which, if changed too dramatically...

    Stephen Street tweets about "Suedehead" in live set

    It seems unfathomable to me (as a guitar player), why any bass player would tour with any band playing one of their famous hits live and play something different. Surely, you would sit down with your bass, listen to the song and learn the parts exactly section by section? The first band I ever...

    "List of the Lost" cover art, press release, release date (Sep. 24, 2015) - Penguin UK, TTY

    Cover photo has a pretty good resemblance to Moz in the Alma Matters video with his cropped hair :)

    "Biggest Band Break Ups and Make Ups" (BBC 4) features The Smiths

    I never knew that either until I read this book. The reviews on Amazon (some of them), said that there was nothing more to really add to The Severed Alliance, but I found this book to be the most informative and interesting book since The Songs That Saved Your Life by Simon Goddard. I waited...

    Johnny Marr asked about Morrissey's new album in NME (June 14, 2014)

    Marr's last 'The Messenger' album is fantastic, his playing has lost nothing and some of the current music he is writing is matching anything else he's ever done. Like Morrissey, he doesn't feel the need or see the point in reforming or dwelling on the past. I don't know what would have become...

    Johnny Marr was on Tonight Show 4/26

    Johnny's new collaboration from the Spiderman movie with Pharrell Williams called Here is excellent. You can clearly hear his beautiful acoustic playing. Johnny's solo album was brilliant, the songwriting, guitar playing and tone on there was incredible on songs like New Town Velocity and his...

    Young Morrissey sitting on a car

    Morrissey's family were far from 'upper middle-class', as has been suggested on this thread. As a kid I lived in Whalley Range just a mile or so down the other end of Kings Road at that time, I knew some of his relatives and I had family in the avenue just near Mozzer's house and around...

    Topics not covered in the autobiography that you wanted to read about?

    I suppose the Simon Goddard book is the one for the 'inside-track' on the songs and the early beginnings, and Johnny's vivid contribution is excellent in there and trounces Rogan's previous version of events, but it is truly missing Morrissey's thoughts and memories of the songs as they took...
