    Kewpie, I have an extremely high opinion of Marr. I described him as a 'very good or great' guitarist and a songwriter of similar standing. I just think Morrissey is considerably more talented is all. Marr is great, Moz is a genius. That's just how I see it.

    As Morrissey has said quite a few times producers make an enormous difference. I can't put my finger on the exact recent interview but Moz was quite clear that they are not useless. That is if we are talking about Morrissey albums then these are the words from the man himself :)

    btw what is this vast chasm of difference in quality we're supposed to be hearing in Lillywhite's production across these 3 albums? It's not the production that separates Vauxhall from the other 2 and while I'm at it most of Mozzer's albums.

    It's how he was feeling when he wrote the words and we all know how he was feeling during that time. These feelings put that tenderness and depth into Vauxhall.

    SPG was not tender in the slightest and Maladjusted was lacking in my opinion because of song selection. Had it been comprised of:

    Maladjusted
    Alma Matters
    He Cried
    I can have both
    The edges are no longer parallel
    Heir apparent
    Trouble loves me
    Pap smear Jack
    Wide to receive
    Lost
    Ambitious Outsiders

    it would have been more memorable I think.

    Yes this was a thread about band members but we've had plenty of those and we all know who his best line up was :)

    Aw geez someone wants the smiths to reform. How original.

    Sure Joyce can be on drums as long as it's his head being used as a drum by Matt Walker and his sticks! :lbf:

    You're welcome.

    Present Morrissey's players are excellent. I don't know why you made a thread like this. I respect you and your opinion, guy - I just don't think it's necessary to chose other musians.

    er, wrong actually - as someone who saw The Smiths, I have no desire to see them reform.
    The question was 'your ideal band for Morrissey' and that is my ideal band.

    So your ideal band for Morrissey is the Smiths? God I hope Mozzer doesn't read this thread :)

    Morrissey
    Marr
    Joyce
    Rourke

    if that cant happen:

    Morrissey
    Whyte
    Boz
    Gary
    Spencer
     

  14. Butler is better than Marr these days. The guitars of Butler and Boz and the songs of Butler, Whyte and Boz would take Morrissey to the promised land.

    The rest - irrelevant, pretty much anybody.

    Alain Whyte, surely? And Marr is now playing with The Cribs...that says it all! It's boring when everyone goes on about Marr. He's moved on so Morrissey fans need to!
     
  18. Well said, gimp. Here's a marsh mallow piece as a reward. Open wide now...

    I prefer Smarties, but if you must, I'll take it.
