How is Morrissey being a twat in anyway new or news? Surely anyone can see he's, in all honestly, a bit of a tosser.
I actually found that very funny. Here is this bitter old drunk ranting on about one of the greatest artists that ever drew breath and he gets so angry, twisted and wound up that you think his head is going to turn inside out, so much so he has to be stopped by the interviewer who presumably is thinking what a twat this bloke is, and asked to get back on topic...the funniest bit however was the 'no im fine' and then the large pause before '...Phil Collins'. I spat my drink out in hilarity. It could have been straight out of a Gervais/Merchant creation.
Chareth, if the extent of the man is that he 'wrote some good songs 20 years ago', you wouldnt be here talking about him. Tony Wilsons account of him is far less reliable than someone on here who has never met him. As has been mentioned, the man is clearly bitter and twisted about not signing The Smiths, that and the fact that he looks like a melted welly. There are dozens of people who have met Moz and said he's one of the warmest people you could hope to meet. It's all subjective of course but there is no consensus on Morrissey being 'a bit of a tosser'.
Of course he isnt perfect, that much is clear and there is credance in the arugment that he tends to shit on people a bit, or at least he used to, but no one would be interested in the man if he was perfect. His failings make him far more human and that is so much of the attraction for his fans id suggest, especially in todays music. No one thinks he can do no wrong.
It's just an attempt by Wilson to get some column inches. He just wants a "Tony Slams Morrissey" headline.
The most hilarious part is his insistence that Morrissey hates him back. I really very much doubt Morrissey cares. If he sees it he'll probably think it's funny.
But he's lifted a lot of ordinary people out of the drain by giving them some songs to articulate their lives. I think that counts for more than whatsizface thinks.
Whatsizface kind of gave birth to the Manchester music scene. Without whatsizface I very much doubt this board would exist. Check the history books kid.
Ok. I agree. The comment about Phil Collins was f***ing hilarious.
But why do people on here seem to think that Morrissey is the f***ing messiah. It's embarassing.
HE'S JUST A GUY, WHO WROTE SOME SONGS. YES, THEY WERE GOOD SONGS. THE BEST SONGS IN SOME CASES. THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU HAVE TO AGREE WITH EVERYTHING HE SAYS!!!!!
BACON, AFTER ALL, IS REALLY f***ING TASTY.
