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

    He really is an absolute nobody. Don't worry Nile, nobody thinks you were in The Smiths, and you aren't going to be on BBC News any time soon. Pathetic manchild.

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    "Everything I had said at The Smiths demise had led me directly towards trouble, precisely because I could not explain to anyone exactly why the roof had fallen in. You begin to imagine facts where originally, there were none. A hurt sensation rises like dough every time your own name is...

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

    JM fled from his own band because his gay best mate, who patently adored him, made a move? Such crap. Rumours like that have been around forever and it's no 'dark secret' anyway - the only thing that would be "surprising" or shocking about that for any Smiths fan is that M waited until 87 to do...

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    I wasn't really weighing in on the court case stuff itself - just saying that Morrissey's view of Johnny (weak, eager to please, not loyal) was crystallised then, has never changed and has been borne out to a degree by JM's sniping in later years. Morrissey is surrounded by yes-men and he can't...

    Laughed at this one - "Maybe they just need to have a shag and get it out of their system." 😂😂

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

    Baffling. Why would somebody who was lamenting, a while back, that they're not in contact - respond with that bizarre comment? I sense he's going to delete it quickly.

    Maybe he did. But when your say that stuff over and over for years, you can't expect the other bloke to be sending you Christmas cards.

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    Yep, and before that as well. "He defends it (his decision to leave) simply now by saying that Morrissey is evil and The Smiths was a terrible experience. That's how he defends his terrible decision." - interview with Dave Fanning, 2002 And that's the root of all of this. When Johnny is asked...

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    I don't think those anecdotes were meant cruelly (especially not the eiderdown one) - but his analysis of Johnny in the courtroom was devastatingly accurate, i.e that JM bends under pressure and says whatever people want him to say, loyalty be damned. That's exactly what he's doing when he...

    Well, if he does, that would be tremendously shit. I don't think so though, somehow.

    Yeah, we all knew that useless boot-licking twat would be loving this. Urgh.

    Morrissey Central "OPEN LETTER TO JOHNNY MARR." (January 25, 2022)

    The general tone of Moz' message is reasonable. That level of hurt is how he has always felt (as Autobio made clear) - but so rare to hear him say it and especially in public. Johnny's response could go one of two ways: - he could reply angrily, tell M to f*** off to outer space & continue...

    This surprised me - how raw, how honest, how unexpected? I am not sure it needed to be an "open" letter - Moz could have said this in private - but it will certainly open Johnny's eyes to Moz grievances. It might even compel JM to ring him and apologise, who knows?

    Express: "The Smiths split ‘bruised me emotionally, it turned to s*** with Morrissey’ – Johnny Marr" via Uncut Magazine (January 13, 2022)

    As long as Morrissey remains a solo artist, then by definition they are all hired hands - they are there to provide a musical framework for his lyrics and ideas, and they are all replaceable. The fact that band members write music doesn't change that working model - if it did, he wouldn't have...

    Express: "The Smiths split ‘bruised me emotionally, it turned to s*** with Morrissey’ – Johnny Marr" via Uncut Magazine (January 13, 2022)

    Nah. Jesse might think he's special or "above" being a hired hand like all the rest, but that's what everyone thinks until the moment they fall from favour and M boots them into outer space. I can only imagine how embarrassed Jesse must have been to see Alain back in the fold, after being rude...

    Low In High School is underrated

    I enjoyed "Home is a Question Mark", "Israel" and "Jacky..", but beyond that it's a jumbled, mixed-up album with some of Morrissey's worst lyrics. Most songs have really poor vocal melodies, which is where Moz usually excels.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death of a Disco Dancer"

    I know it's a candid shot but God, how tense and tired they all look. They already knew JM was unhappy.

    The Smiths A-Z: "Death at One's Elbow"

    The worst thing The Smiths ever did, an absolute embarrassment of a song. The only redeeming feature in the entire thing is Moz' vocal delivery of "The frustration it renders me HATEFUL..."
