Watching this interview just confirms that these people had seemingly nothing in common with Morrissey whatsoever. It is a miracle that they worked with him as long as they did (until the present day in Boz's case of course).

But really if you think about it, who in the hell would have anything in common with Morrissey???!! I always felt when it came to the band he kinda liked having guys around him that possessed qualities that he didn't possess himself.

Appearances are deceiving. Alain was a die-hard Smiths and Echo and the Bunnymen fan. Spencer was more "rockabilly by association" and listened to a lot of classical growing up. Boz and Gary were the "true" rockers - though Boz studied at a music conservatory.

Morrissey made sure that their rockabilly credentials were pushed to the fore to fit the image he wanted conveyed. And then carped for years about criticisms that his band was a "rockabilly band." :)
