    Michael Stipe Mentions Morrissey in interview

    Michael Stipe Mentions Morrissey in interview

    Album was "accelerate" ... Peter Buck had said he would leave if they didn't do a more "guitar" album ... it's just over 30 minutes long and is great ... living well , not noise is the best revenge indeed

    Johnny Marr on close relationships in The Smiths, Paul McCartney advice after split (BBC Music, MEN)

    I hav I have read 2/3 of the book tonight far as the split. And what comes across is how proud johnny is of the band , the music , and what they achieved with such haphazard management. He doesn't really slag moz off at all . It's quite poignant in places where his and the moz book...

    TTY: Morrissey's novel "List of the Lost" out in September

    He lives for the written word , and people come second or possibly third .... He needs a forceful editor but i dont think that will have been the case .. would love it to be good but not hopeful

    "Speedway" at Madison Square Garden video by Sam Esty Rayner

    gustavo is almost showing us his religion in those pants... bet moz loves it This version shows us how moz really does not care for his fans and is totally self indulgent ... one of his most loved songs and the climax of the lyrical thrust and he spends it limply banging a tambourine . The last...
