What has John Lennon been accused of ?? I've never heard of him being inappropriate with children......
I read a while ago, Sean Lennon himself said this btw, that Lennon screamed in Sean's ear and damaged his hearing. I'll find a link in a min. Pretty sure that's what the other commenter is referring to.

I am starting to think that we're the only people in the world (us here) that don't think Moz is racist (us few dozen). It is clearly evident then that the rest of the world is in denial. Us dozen or so supporters know better. Their heads are in the sand. Ho hum, another outsider who thinks Morrissey is a creep.

I wasn't aware of such mutterings, tbh.
I’ve read the book; it’s a great tittle-tattle biography. But Goldman made a living out of writing the most sensational accounts of the famous legally possible: the juicer the gossip, the more publishers were willing to pay for contributory anecdotes, with obvious consequences for the truth.

I know; I was there to hear it in Salisbury: walked straight out, bought a pint, and was back in time for a good concert.
Aye, I can see why people don't like it. Not much subtlety to it. Personally, I prefer it to the idea of Jesse having to try and play *THAT* guitar intro, and it's something a bit different.

EDIT: I've had a look at the Salisbury 2009 setlist and you really think that is THAT good? Some absolute garbage in there. What a bizarre tour.

Ben Gibbard is great, and seeing you lot melt like the snowflakes you are because his disagrees with Morrissey's ridiculous politics is exactly what I needed this Monday morning. Ta x
You can't really see through Ben Gibbard oportunism, can you? Poor thing ...

My only mistake is I'm hoping
It isn't that simple.

We all listen to music by people that have done some pretty bad shit:

And we don’t go about making apologies for liking those songs by artists who have done “bad” things. He didn’t apologize for Robert Smith believing it is morally “bad” to procreate. I’m not merely listening to songs by Morrissey - I don’t see it that way and I don't believe most Morrissey fans see it that way. I’m not arguing what your saying in practice actually, just in principle. I get it, but I didn’t like the tone and manner in which Mr. Gibbard handled it. I doubt

The venue was great, and of the kind he rarely plays now. There was a warmth and a good level of anticipation because it was a rescheduled date, after a cancellation.

I agree with you. Morrissey isn't far-right, and, obviously, isn't racist at all. How could he be racist and have in his band for so long two mexican-americans and one colombian-american?

I couldn’t help but state the following on YouTube: “You give a disclaimer prior to murdering Everyday is Like Sunday - really? Just sing the damn song or destroy something from The Smiths so you don’t have to waste time groveling.” If you don’t agree with someone that strongly, don’t sing his/her song(s).
Well, so guess you’ve told him then!

Fak Arf.
