It's all good
I do. He's a hero of mine. I'm a massive admirer of his inventiveness, skill, and his amazing compositions, it was a real highlight when I saw him in Manchester last year.
Isn't that exactly what 'people' say? Over and over and over and over...Only semi-on-topic RE: JM, but I find it highly amusing when people slate him for playing and singing Smiths songs. They are his songs as much as Morrissey's - which, I suppose, is probably a newsflash to Morrissey. To say that he can't sing them because, vocally, "he's no Morrissey" is ludicrous. You could just as easily argue that Morrissey's band is no Smiths when they play the songs.
I do, as well. From a musician's perspective, his style of playing remains insanely nuanced - and this is for the mere reason that he is 100%, unconditionally into his instrument. That's rare as hell, and even rarer for someone of that vein to attain an enduring spotlight, even if it is mostly still just because of what he did in the Smiths.
