    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

    Excerpt:


    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.

      All the best.

      He may be lux girl but that was a GREAT rendition of a Doors classic that realitybites posted ! Is it for real ? I mean is Ian Astbury going to sing lead with The Doors .... do a tour , record an album ? If that clip is any indicator , it could be a groovin project .
      By the way a Mike Tyson auto bio may be a good read . He was at the top of the world before Ohioian Buster Douglas surprised the world by knocking him out . I was in Akron Ohio when this happened and the place exploded with joy at his win. It was just non stop screaming and yelling at the end of that fight . Crazy !

      I don't know what that was all about, really. But, it isn't recent. Kilborn hasn't been on in ages and Ray Manzarek died last year. :(

      That video is pretty old. Posted it because I think Ian does a good job singing that song. Did not mean to cause any confusion. :)

      RB,

      I think he does a 'TOOGOODA' this is an impersonation rather than IB with the doors.

      great music though.

      Ian Astbury toured with the Doors quite a few years ago. Around 2006 I think. They were called "The Doors of the 21st Century" because of a dispute with John Densmore (drummer) about the band's name. They have recently made up but unfortunately after Ray Manzerek's death.

      - marred.
