Morley was barely coherent when he interviewed Marr the other year, kept tripping over his words etc. He's a big fan of The Smiths, isn't he?
Well L.A is the place where eveyone goes to re-invent themselves isn't it? I can see why he left England after the endless negative media stories and court case and loss of a record label, why LA though? Even he hated it and thought it was false, maybe to be closer to his Hispantic fanbase? I thought though he'd have moved to a place where he could focus his creative drive and produce some great music away from the hassle, L.A hardly seems the place though, maybe he wanted to top up his tan and visit a 7 11, who the hell knows?
Paul Morley still dining out on the fact he and Moz both wanted to be journos, calling Moz 'Steven' like he knew him, Morley looks like a homeless these days.
Hahaha, but Morley doesn't have to wear Almarni suit on TV like Tony Wilson.
He was really lucky to make money using Frankie Goes Hollywood.
Well, there was that bit that was published a year or so back about him and Linder and James Maker gallivanting miserably about the Moors that was allegedly from his autobiography. I remember that reading like an eloquent piece of literature.
And I think he didn't succeed in being a journalist because he was an asshole in a witty way as opposed to in the typically dull way of most music journalists.
I dont think he will even mention the 'secret child' rumour, it wasnt even big and he never even said it was untrue in a interview or anything, he was never asked about it.He waited until he was 47 to let everyone know he wasn't a virgin anymore? I'm sure I remember a Smiths interview where he said he lost it very early, 13 or 14, but he's contradicted himself on the topic many times. I want to know the full Jake story in detail, why he really left the David Bowie tour, the Smiths split from his side and whether he or Linder were lovers at any point...also interested to know what was behind the "secret child" rumours that cropped up during the court case and then were never heard of again.
I'm guessing that the 'December 2012' projection for this book isn't going to materialize.
I have a similar question. The original version of The Severed Alliance covered Morrissey's (and Marr's) post-Smiths work up through 1991. Does the new version include more of that or is all of the added info focused on The Smiths?
