      What is Morrissey doing. Some dude in LA managing him from yet another big management company. Time he put some people around him who care. He has that lady assistant, what is it about these big time wankers that he likes.

      Rare that a PR/Manager (Ron Laffitte) gets his very own hate song. This by a band called, Spoon.
      The song is called "Laffitte Don't Fail Me Now"....

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp9PGzGroMc

      In an interview of Spoon after the release of their EP entitled “The Agony of Laffitte”!
      AC: You guys ever hear from your old A&R guy, Ron Laffitte?
      BD: I heard this great story about the Faint. You know that band? They're on Saddle Creek, which put out our Laffitte single originally. They were being courted by Ron Laffitte. When they were in New York, Ron and the president of Capitol Records took them to dinner, and as soon as the two of them walked up, the band handed Ron a copy of The Agony of Laffitte. By the accounts I've heard, he went white. The president of Capitol Records was like, "Oh, what's that?" And Ron didn't have anything to say throughout the entire evening. [Laughter all around] We owe those guys a couple rounds of drinks

      According to the Damien Dempsey site he is playing in Waterford on 2nd July so from that I would say it looks unlikely that he will be added to the bill

      It would be nice to make a poll, about how
      long Ron Laffitte will be manager.

      From day 1 with The Smiths till today, Morrissey
      and managers is in a few words;

      controlfreak
      difficult
      Morrissey does what he wants, whatever a manager says/wants/planns

      hope this one will will do more on PR for Morrissey

      congrats both

      Morrissey needs to be managed by some ex-military guy or something.

      "OK listen up Private Morrissey, you WILL be completing a run of shows this Summer and upon conclusion you WILL be entering the studio for a new album, do you understand me?"

      "I think I'd prefer to just stay in bed, I might cancel a few sh-"

      "GET YOUR ASS BACK IN LINE, MAGGOT!"

      *gulp*

      whip this boy into shape!

      it's her job to protect him, not to facilitate fan encounters

      It's important to remember that people hire assistants to do things for them that they, for whatever reason, can't or choose not to do for themselves. Setting limits so that he can get some rest might be one of them?

      Jean Laffitte would be a good Morrissey manager, but he's dead.
