    Alain chatting/jamming with Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols. Fun interview, with plenty of great Morrissey stories here, plus a nice acoustic version of 'We Hate it When Our Friends Become Successful' around the 20 minute mark, and a burst of 'You're The One For Me, Fatty' and 'Certain People I Know' from around 41:00.

      Sometimes, you have to abandon your license, and state the obvious.

      No, he's not too sweet, and polite. He's just above it all.

      Who said he was forced out?

      Obsessing over the past? He seems to be moving forwards, and these are songs he co-wrote. Why should he ignore them, and stop discussing his work? Does Morrissey playing Smiths songs mean he hasn't let go of the past?

      Their his songs too.

      He even called him a great lyricist in their interview. Certainly, he could not like him as a person, but that's not a novel perspective. He's not a very likeable as a person. He doesn't really connect with people outside of his songs.

      I like that Alain had the guts to comment on Morrissey's artistic choices.

      We've yet to really get an honest, comprehensive view of what it's like to work with Morrissey; to the point where it seems like either he has forced contractual bans on discussing it, or he has cast some kind of Jedi mind-trick on those he comes in contact with.

      Alain seems the most likely to give an honest perspective. Morrissey even stated in his book that Alain's agent, or some other representative claimed Alain he would be writing a book about his time with Morrissey.

      We can only hope. It seems long overdo.

      Yeah he's moving forward with an EP of reworked Morrissey demos.

      Don't get me wrong: I like Alain. A lot. I think he's incredibly talented and arguably the best writing partner Morrissey ever had.

      I just feel like there has to be some saltiness over how it ended and the fact that he's not showing it is commendable yet still an elephant in the room.

      That's MY take. I could be way off.

      I enjoyed the interview overall.

      The thing about THIS is that you are wrong in your very first sentence. Morrissey has a totally natural ability when it comes to songwriting. He is very adept at crushing the planned chorus and turning it into the second verse, slowing it down and then singing behind the beat. That's natural talent. Plus, Morrissey had that natural ability when he was eating egg and chips in 1983.

      Jonesy is an aquired taste.
      For anyone who is considering reading his book: Lonely Boy - Tales From A Sex Pistol for any Morrissey mentions...
      Well, there's only one and it just alludes to him being in the audience of the Free Trade Hall - nothing else.
      It's not a bad read though nonetheless.
      Interestingly, besides a brief forward by Chrissie Hynde, Johnny Marr is cited by the co-writer as providing some assistance (via the Acknowledgements:"... Chrissie Hynde for helpful conversations; Johnny Marr and most of all Nicola Barker for editorial rigour.").

      Fek ye reckon you lots know the beat to Ganglord and The Experiment was taken from Uncle Steve's missus version of Hotel California from her classic album California Girl. Are you catching on now?....."California Son" "California Girl" get it...get it? I reckon the intro to Throwing My Arms Paris was taken from How Are Things in California. Reckon you loonies should listen to Uncle Steve's real influences like Aunt Nancy, Beach Boys, Chili Peppers, Tim Harden, Melanie and The Go Gos. Al is infatuated with Aunt Nancy and reckon he better not try anything or Uncle Steve's goons will be on him faster than a foreigner can eat a Big Mac mate inn n nnn n nn nn nn nnn n nnn n dint in n n n n n it.
