    UPDATE Jan. 11:

    From @TorrHL / Twitter:

    I complied a list of all the times that Morrissey mentions Bowie in "Autobiography." I also embedded five relevant videos.

    Lots of interesting quotes in here. Enjoy.

    Every time Morrissey mentions David Bowie in “Autobiography” - Torr / Tumblr

    From the January 2014 article "Morrissey calls for end to David Bowie rivalry that was just 'high ribbing'" on Gigwise:

    Ex-Smiths frontman Morrissey has said that he wants an end to his rivalry with fellow music icon David Bowie.

    In a question and answer session on fansite truetoyou.net, Morrissey addressed the truth behind the rivalry calling it simply "ribbing".

    "When I made the (2006) record Ringleader of the Tormentors," writes Morrissey, "the producer (Tony Visconti), who is a very close friend of David Bowie, tried to get both Bowie and I together to do our version of You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', with David doing the deep Bill Medley parts, and me doing the Bobby Hatfield shrieks."

    "I loved this idea, but David wouldn't budge. I know I've criticised David in the past, but it's all been snotnosed junior high ribbing on my part. I think he knows that."
