My friend is a violinist and was touring with Charlotte Gainsborough.
Morrissey's tour manager is called Charlie Brown.
So according to this, the take down notice was made at the behest of Johnny Marr.
(Personally this comes as no surprise to me. I always thought he was a bit of a penis.)
Lol. If only I was invited to more parties. Kidding, I hate parties.
This l'OO'ks like a MASSIVE two fingers up to Johnny from Moz. He is basically saying, 'they are MY words, NOT yours, and I will decide where they can or can't be used'. Good for Moz. If anybody should ever wish to put the words to 'Messenger' to a cartoon strip, then let Johnny throw his weight around then... but somehow, I doubt it will happen.
*Goes off singing* Who wants to be a messenger? Who wants to be a messenger? Who wants to be a messenger?
I LOVE This Charming Charlie. When there was danger of it being taken down, I saved many to my computer. I'm glad they are here to stay. Keeping Charlie brown comics vibrant and Smiths' music alive is a win-win situation!
Why would anyone care to know that?Morrissey's tour manager is Donnie Knutson. He was pictured holding a blue rose at Morrissey's performance on The Late Show. Surely you must know that?
