I don't meant to change the subject here but... sooooomebody once told me:
Morrissey is a fan of Smash Mouth, apparently - NME
The two acts recently played a show together in Mexico
Morrissey is a fan of ‘All Star’ hitmakers Smash Mouth, according to the band themselves at least.
The US band recently spoke to Stereogum to mark their 20th anniversary as a band, when they revealed that they once met the former Smiths frontman and that he was “very complimentary” about them.
Jamie Stephens sends the link to the original article in Stereogum:
Q&A: Steve Harwell On 20 Years Of Smash Mouth And Coming To Terms With All Those “All Star” Memes - Stereogum
Near the bottom:
STEREOGUM: You mentioned being on the road all the time, what’s the most memorable show you’ve played in the last few years or so?
HARWELL: We just did a show in Guadalajara, Mexico, the Roxy Fest, with Morrissey, which was super, super cool.
STEREOGUM: Did you get to meet Morrissey?
HARWELL: Yeah! It was brief. But super weird and cool. He was great.
STEREOGUM: Is he a fan?
HARWELL: Yeah, he was very complimentary toward us.
