New Morrisssey interview in Vimagazino (Greek)

An anonymous person writes:

Moz gave an interesting interview to the Greek Magazine Vimagazino ahead of his Greek date.

Morrissey: Ο έρωτας είναι πολιτική, αλλά η πολιτική δεν είναι έρωτας - Vimagazino

He also mentions that his 2012 concert in Athens (July 16) is one of his Top 5 gigs ever mainly due to the passionate and faithful Greek fans who packed the venue and left Moz and the band speechless !



Excerpt (Google Translate to English):

Morrissey: Love is politics, but politics is not love
The unconventional British performer talking on BHmagazino shortly before his concert in Athens
by Lazaridou Asterope

...What made ​​you decide to publish your autobiography? Finally, talk about your life was harder than you thought? When the book was released, for what you included and you regret what you did not include?
"I do not regret anything that went on in the book. But there were some incredible events that I forgot to include. For example, a Smiths concert in Montreal suddenly someone jumped on stage and was pointing a gun. Then he jumped into the arena and was lost in the world. This was definitely a very powerful moment that I was sorry that he stayed outside. The reality TV star Pat Phoenix had me write a very personal letter from her deathbed. I also received a letter from Prince Charles and three invitations to attend the Buckingham Palace. Moreover, thanks I had arrived as the British Parliament, when my name was discussed there because I criticize - very rightly in my view - regular Thatcher. So probably I have material for a second volume of autobiography, with all those little and big life events that become important only when someone tells. "

pithy yet degenerate
"The only sure thing is that now I have more need than ever. As the strongest angora before the end of a very good concert."

So what Google Translate is telling me here is that this is what Moz does backstage right before the encore…right?

"The emotional reactions of my fans, then, is for me a first-class group psychotherapy."

Who needs therapy when you have your fans...:love:
 

Harsh Truth

Ever Felt Had?
Just for fun, I checked out the set list for the 2012 Athens show. See below. One thing that totally escaped my recollection was drummer Eric Lewis Gardner, who sat in for the summer of 2012. I obviously remember the brief Anthony era, but Eric had slipped through my the brain strainer completely.

Set List:

How Soon Is Now? / You Have Killed Me / I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris / You're The One For Me, Fatty / Black Cloud / Ouija Board, Ouija Board / Maladjusted / Shoplifters Of The World Unite / Everyday Is Like Sunday / Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me / I Will See You In Far Off Places / Action Is My Middle Name / Meat Is Murder / Let Me Kiss You / To Give (The Reason I Live) / Speedway / Scandinavia / When Last I Spoke To Carol / I Know It's Over // Still Ill

So he will never again sing "Handsome Devil."
Which obviously he is entitled to do.
But the reasoning is a little shoddy, isn't it? I mean, where exactly is the gap between "Handsome Devil" and other early-era songs like "Still Ill" and "This Charming Man" that makes "Handsome Devil" so un-expressible for a 55 year-old?

Handsome Devil was a cute song for a scrawny 25 year old hipster to prance around the stage and song, but a buff, greying 50-something man wearing a $400 shirt? Not so much.

Well then, wouldn't the same go for singing "I haven't got a stitch to wear"? :rolleyes:
