      It's funny, because The Cure picked up a Godlike Genius Award, same with Jarvis Cocker, New Order, John Peel, Blondie, Johnny Marr... But no Morrissey. I wonder why that is?

      If anything this adds credence to their uselessness.
      An NME award? How out of touch are you?
      The real Godlike Genius Award is lodged in Moz's brain.

      No Siouxsie either, normal; the NME have been boycotting and omitting that the Banshees have influenced a lot of their nme darlings.
      But both Morrissey and Siouxsie are beyond trophies anyway.

      Mate, you sound like you're in a cult. You seem genuinely delusional.

      On the contrary, it’s a gorgeous atmospheric tune with touching lyrics about a beautiful yet fleeting moment.

      Exceptional argument, StalinsPipe; I'll be deleting my Moz catalog immediately.

      Yes, The Cure sold out 3 nights at the Hollywood Bowl in 2016 and now they're playing to 80K fans in Hyde Park - hardly irrelevant. Ironically this is on the heels of Morrissey having to cancel his UK tour (allegedly) for low ticket sales.

      Haven’t The Cure always played to more people than Moz? Not that it really matters.

      Yet Moz would cream himself if he got one and get tennis elbow from patting himself on the back. It is a shame that Siouxsie doesn't get far more credit than she does though.

      It's lodged somewhere alright. I wonder why he chose to put his genius there? Seems odd to me but it takes all kinds.

      Morrissey claims he was offered and turned down the Godlike Genius Award (could they have found a more pretentious title?). From 2007:

      The NME have, in the past, offered me their “Godlike Genius Award” and I had politely refused....My own view is that award ceremonies in pop music are dreadful to witness and are simply a way of the industry warning the artist “see how much you need us”

      Yet, he has accepted a Q Award and an Ivor Novello in the past, although these are more prestigious than an NME award.

      I imagine he's got plenty of room in a few places.

      As I recall the Morrissey/Robert Smith spat involved meat eating. On that subject Morrissey is on the right side of history,trust me.

      I saw The Cure on their last tour through Charlotte, NC. They played 35 songs. They played for 3 hours. You are incorrect regarding the greatest hits comment. Yes, they play their popular songs. Like Morrissey, they have about 40-50 songs (not including The Smiths’ songs) that M solo fans would love to hear....In fact, they neatly cobble them together by album sequence in 5 three or four song encores. However, they have had outstanding albums during the past 25 years including 4:13 Dream and Bloodflowers. I’ve seen Morrissey 20 times. Every show has been a landmark and enjoyable event. However, he has played anywhere from 12-19 songs at each show, and he has been off the stage within 55-65 minutes.
