    Billie Joe Armstrong, Duff, Jonesy, Fred and Moz Show for Johnny Ramone - California Rocker

    Morrissey’s New Record.
    “I’m here in Los Angeles doing some recording,” he told in the VIP tent at the event. “I wouldn’t miss this.”

    Morrissey was kind to the fans, posing for pictures and then jamming along in the audience with McKagan, Armstrong, Armisen and Jonesy on stage.

      Boz probably vouches to keep Jesse around because he’s an inferior guitarist and less of a threat to him then Alain was, yes Alain Whyte and Boz are friends or were friends we don’t know all the details of the falling out, but friendships can end when it comes down to money. No one wants Jesse just listen to last batch of songs he’s made for Morrissey instantly forgettable

      All that happened when The Smiths ended, was that Morrissey shed a bunch of dead weight. He's much more happier as a solo artist.

      Unfortunately, happy Morrissey = inferior songs

      Well thought out, well explained, and well written. No insults or jabs. No crazy fonts or coloring that scream, 'look at me!'. Your words speak well enough for themselves.

      I must say, I, or may I be as bold as to say, we agree.

      Well well all.

      Well, slightly tongue-in-cheek perhaps, but...

      Reflecting from my deathbed
      I'm balancing life's riches
      Against the ditches
      And the flat, grey years in between.

      I can't see those who tried to love me
      Or those who felt they understood me
      And I can't see those who very patiently
      Put up with me
      All I can see are the never laid, the never played

      Hugely underrated song, I feel. It's been a while since his lyrics were as strong.

      One of my absolute favourites. I agree, wonderful lyrics but also great musical hooks - could never in a million years have been written by Tobias. And yes, I've often thought about the significance of those lyrics.

      Yes, agree, it is an amazing song, little else if anything done by any artist since can even compare to it, then there’s always his voice, especially on this song.

      But, as I said, I don’t think his work in/as the Smiths will be the only thing on his mind when
      he is thinking his last thoughts. His life has so far (and many more years to come) on this planet have been long and rich with rewards won during his solo years, which I must remind you, have been longer than the time span of the Smiths existence. And of course, besides his art, there is his inner/personal life and all the transformations and experiences that will color
      and inform his final thoughts, which goes for all of us.

      Though I hope, for him and everyone, that ones
      heart is at peace and the mind is filled with no thoughts of the past or fears of nonexistence,
      but a mind that’s open with surrender and a welcoming of the next great adventure, which is

      Beautifully written. I too hope for the same things for all, because we are all going to be there at some point. And all of this will just be nonsense that, in the end, doesn't really mean much.

      Be well...
