      Here is a snippet from radio show interview with Jose Maldonado that will be airing on Wednesday 26th of December. Check out the link above for details. There was a guitar laying about so I had a go. It was not planned and totally spontaneous. P.S Merry Christmas everyone

      Lovely performance of HOTYF. Well done, Alain. That cascading, rolling riff is so beautiful. It's nice to be reminded of just how good the music was that underpinned Morrissey's earlier work. Properly melodic, with great hooky riffs and seamless structure. Proper musicanship. That's what we've lost.

      I forgot just how complex this guitar was for this song. How the hell do you sing and play like this at the same time? Gorgeous.

      We haven't lost anything. These songs will always be around and Alains version is very sweet and poignant.
      Have a lovely Christmas

      What a great musician and songwriter Alain is. He brought so much to the music of Morrissey's early solo years, but I NEED both!

      By the way, who was playing with Morrissey during this 2018 tour? Besides Alain and Boz, I believe that Vini Reilly did a great job in the past, responsible for some of Moz most remarkable songs.

      We haven't lost the recordings, no, which is a blessing. But I think Morrissey's band lost something when it lost Alain's musicianship, which is a shame for him and us. That's my view, anyway.
      Have a lovely Christmas yourself, Irish Hare.

      In fairness to Peppermint, Alain was a massive loss. Moz's music has suffered ever since. As much as I love almost every Moz album they don't really compare to Your Arsenal or Vauxhall or Quarry. Jesse is not an adequate replacement for Alain.

      Well stated Acton. As fans we take what we can get. But I am glad I was a fan during these earlier times.
