IAN ASTBURY ON THE DEATH OF THE ROCK STAR - Esquire
And Morrissey and his love of street wear and why you'll definitely see new music from The Cult in 2014
ESQ: So, Morrissey released his autobiography, and in it he mentions his early days playing in a band with [Cult guitarist] Billy Duffy. Have you read it, and if so, what did you think?
IA: I have no interest in it.
ESQ: No interest at all?
IA: No interest whatsoever. You'd have to ask Billy about that. I have no connection to him. I mean, I admire The Smiths, certainly, and Morrissey as well, but the only moment I ever had with Morrissey was when he did Your Arsenal with Mick Ronson producing, which I thought was an exceptional record. In terms of autobiographies, I've got Mike Tyson's autobiography right now. I'm much more interested in Mike Tyson than I am in Morrissey.
