Bit of an oddity, but included as an insight to his musical taste.
Jesse chooses a playlist for a 'luxury' fashion brand.
What no Morrissey!?
Regards,
FWD.
 
Nobody cares about this hack!
With a list like that you'd think he be a better guitar player!
In his photo he looks like hes been reading messages on this site!:laughing:

Anyways here some more Alain news!
He just posted a new video on youtube showing off his great guitar skills and song writing ability!

I don't really care about either Jesse or AW but at least Jesse is not an asslicker like AW. Playing songs he never wrote, as if they were his. He is a real grifter.
Jesse seems to have done quite well for himself without Moz . He just struck gold when he found Moz. I don't know why people hate on him so much. If Moz likes him, then Moz likes him. Why get so bent out of shame? AW does some ok songs, he can't sing though and he is nothing compared to Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Rochard Hawley . This song isn't great
 
Jesse's fashion is Morrissey-influenced too, no doubt. Even the expression on his face is Morrissey-esque!
I think you are seeing Moz in your cornflakes Mate. Thats the trouble with obsessives they think everyone is copying their obsession because that is all they do .
Jesse had a quiff and things before Moz also loads of people wear the style Jesse d
does in USA.
 
It turned out to be good to paint to though.
How anyone can be a music fan and not like Eno is beyond me. Moz is a huge fan as well, I hear
The only Gun Club fan I know looked just liked Mozzer. Which made me laugh when I saw this
 
so far on this thread we have had.
jesse has spycho eyes.
jesse has a boozers chin.
jesse has smelly feet.
jesse has terrible taste in music.
jesse has an evil look in his eyes.
all because jesse is in and alain is out.
LOL
The thing is, i think people know they are powerless to influence Moz.
They know they don't really know much about him, not really. So they hate
on people who are close to Moz. They bitched about AW and Boz and KY.
Its uncalled for
 
Y
Why yes I did write it all by myself!

You asked how can we measure how Alain is better and I answered.
Why don't argue your case why Alain is not better than jesse if you think I'm wrong?

There is nothing hateful about the truth.
facts don't care about feelings.

You must me a new generation fan that knows nothing about MOZ's music.
It's just like this new generation to reduce everything to being hateful or violence when they can't accept truth or argue their point.

You have no case my dear so get under mine or argue your point.

BOOYAH!

Yes, but do you not get it, honey? Jesse inspires something in Moz. He makes him feel secure, they hang out together, and they are friends.
That was never true with Alain, just look at the way Alain was booted from the band and then let in and the lack of power he had. AW is probably a better player
but Moz doesn't care, he considers Jesse a close friend, having such hatred for someone you do not know, is crazy. Lots of us were annoyed when AW and Boz joined up with M, we thought he could do better but whatever
 
Tobias isn't Boorer or Whyte and none of the above are Marr ... but I feel that he's scapegoated for a turn that is almost entirely Morrissey's own fault. The difficulty with recent Morrissey is that since WPINOYB, every record has included at least several great songs and a lot of half-baked, soft-right, and charmless doggerel from Moz himself; these are often offset by beautiful arrangements and melodies and sometimes Tobias contributes wonders. His worst sin is being a yes man, he's a totally fine alternative rock guitarist. But no matter how you slice it, this is a fantastic playlist that indicates a serious, ecumenical ear.
I agree. I think that nearly every Moz lp since Boz and AW joined onward has been like that though.
Arensal is hardly wall-to-wall classics. Vauxhall has a couple of howlers and Southpaw. Maladjusted, Quarry and Ringleaders are patchy. Also a hell of a lot of the songs by AW and Boz are only saved by Mozzers voice.
 
I have no dog in this fight, but want to remind you all of this fact:

People WANTED to like Jesse. Me included! We WANT a good member for Moz’s band.

But the fact is this: he proved himself to be AWFUL in so many ways. He is a bad egg and a bad guitarist. THAT IS ALL FACT.

The end.
How do YOU know its a fact? What is your proof. I have seen a lot of people come on here and say this but never really give evidence
It always boils down to this, people blame Jesse for Moz being a boozer, he has been for years. They blame him for treading water but he seems to be more adventurous with Jesse. I don't hate Boz but he seemed like a yes man. So did AW, I mean look at all those videos and Moz references on his social media.
Someone said Jesse was dressing/posing like Moz in a picture, which isn't true but AW has really tried to ape Moz in so many ways . I think AW is a better guitar

I wish people would just stop with this hating
 
This is by far the truth and the truth hurts nowadays. Not willing to accept that says a lot about you. We know Jesse has his minions and even himself commenting on here. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least because he truly has jealousy written all over his face. Alain will always be in our hearts as the best guitarist Moz has ever had.
What are you talking about?
You seriously are being silly. Why did AW leave, in your mind and what proof have you got? People are sick of these baseless comments
Alain is not in "our hearts", Who are you speaking for? Most Moz fans couldn't care less who is backing Moz. The only one who most want to see with Moz, is Marr. That's it and these days lots don't even care about that
If Moz is interviewed, when do you ever hear anyone say "Moz, when will you sing with AW again?" Never. Nobody cares.

The one who has "minions" on here is AW, you know the guy with the hairline, at the back of his head, who kinda looks like Jimmy Sommervile. He is one of AWs minions, he consistently comes on and pretends he is above the hating but nearly always drops a little dig at the backing band
 
Jesse the person seems to have a bad reputation among fans. Where does this stem from? I’ve never met him, but I do think he gives off a bit of a bad vibe and I’m not a fan of his playing. His really matured as a songwriter, though.
 

Hannah Martin, the London jeweller who was at Morrissey's birthday party in LA a couple of years ago. Jesse must be wearing rings designed by her, I guess, but I hadn't noticed them. My impression of the photo is that the pose is all like 'come back to Camden' but the face says more like 'who wants my money now?'!
 
I don't really care about either Jesse or AW but at least Jesse is not an asslicker like AW. Playing songs he never wrote, as if they were his. He is a real grifter.

Why get so bent out of shame? AW does some ok songs, he can't sing though and he is nothing compared to Johnny Marr, Bernard Butler and Rochard Hawley . This song isn't great
Hahahahaha this must be a joke. And if this is seriously, well, a proof that br*inless people exists.

Or, the proof of a new "fan" that doesn't really know (or get) M music, just the "hits".

Jesse, is that you?

Yes, definitely this is jesse "bore" tobias

Nobody loves you, except yourself, sorry mate
 
Some people are haters because they are not happy with their lives. Something didn't go as they like. The bitch about it. in reality it's just envy. Jesse is a great guitarist. I remember the buffy and the vampire slayer. Intro. Wich was one of my fav. Programs. When I was a teen. Love it. Well done Jesse. Love the pic too and the songs you picked ! And the ones you co wrote with Morrissey.

What is there to envy? Really? I can’t see one reason and I definitely can’t hear one thing that makes me envious of him. Not one thing.
 
alain you were good in your time but sadly that time is over,saddest thing of all is that people on here wont accept it.
Which of the up and coming shows are you heading to in order to show your support for Tobias and proclaim the band are the greatest show of all?
If Al was back in the fold, you’d proclaim him to be the best. That’s what you do. 💤

Don’t think that anons comment was aimed at you. If you don’t feel hatred towards or are envious of Jesse, then there would be no need to believe that anons comment was aimed at you.

I don’t think it was aimed at me, zoom. It is a basic question that comes from a whirlwind of baffling curiosity. That is all.
