Does anyone have a link to the story about Morrissey's personal assistant?

News Flash: Touring singer uses 20 towels per night!

Sorry, in my world this far away from being unreasonable. I use at least 4 towels when I shower and I am not even running around on stage.
are you a diplodocus?

I hear that he requests a large open room at each venue, devoid of furniture, and he and the rest of the band strip nude with the object of the game being to chase and whip each other on the buttocks with them while giggling. Kind of like tag, but with more nudity, mild welts and hurt feelings. Evidently it's led to more than one cancellation.
I knew buttocks would be involved somewhere.
The whole affair smacks of arse cheeks.

It's nothing to be sniffed at. Why do you think he's had so many personnel changes over the years? You kind of have to let the boss win once in a while.
Obviously Boz gets it the worst, on account of there being a lot more buttock to whip.

You're quite right dear G.
The man is rump rich.
A tempting target for a damp twisted towel.
You know we should have spotted the signs when Moz overdid it with paper napkins back in the 90's.
Serviettes are the classic gateway drug.
 

Oh my

Enough! or Too much
Oh my ! :lbf:

didn't Morrissey show this video before he went on stage?;)
He should! It would please the towel enthusiasts.

The bare unfathomable truth is that some people cares about Cut Hands, Dream Machines and half-remarkable questions, and some other people cares about towels.

Mankind is weird... and the importance of towels in the history of rock'n'roll is VERY underrated.

AH! yes... this is it ! Elvis! Actually there was a fan who use to jump on stage just to ask Morrissey for his towel!, I only witnessed it once at his Nassau Coliseum show in Long Island NY 1991. He cancelled the next night, which may have been his first ever canceled show due to sickness(?)

Yes but is He any good at it?
I have some doubts about Him mastering anything at all in this world.
You could sel your soul to Satan.
He would make sure you get the mastering you want.

The only story I have with towels involves John Lydon playing with PIL, probably around 1992 (I remember it was their "That what is not" tour).... when he threw a towel to the audience and it landed all over my face. I do not really have a fetish for towels, so I gave it to a friend... and I believe he still has it.

The morale of the story is that some things that people picks up at concerts are not valuable once the concert is over.
Morrissey should play the famous Blow Up scene before his shows!

Speaking of Johnny and towels. You can't deny the guy is a trooper continuing the show.

Some of the "punks" there are a BIG problem and they are too confused. I used to help some people from Chile with some concerts and there was ALWAYS a problem with the local "punks" who were always eager to attack anything that was not "authentic" according to their standards.

Quite similar to the attitude of some people who hangs around here actually.

Punks that are hung up on Lydon being punk enough or not reallllly missed the boat.
Sure, the Pistols launched 1000 bands, and most of them better- but P.i.L. is one of the best post-punk bands of all time. Visceral, engaging, incredibly funny, and with a depth of emotion and insight that the Pistols never even approached.

I think when it comes to the punks you described, the closest thing here would be the rash of Skinheads about 20 years ago. They ruined the entire local scene with their violence and idiocy, and made many larger shows a lot less fun/safe by their presence.

I agree. In the same way that Morrissey is one of the best post-smiths singers of all time, yet some people are stuck into the past and end up writing about towels. :crazy:
