      It's hilarious hearing Rourke laugh about only skimming through Morrissey's autobiography just to see if he was mentioned. What did he expect to find.

      "Andy played bass."

      In what way hilarious a bass player thinking he might have been mentioned in a book written by the singer of the band that made both of them famous?

      Mr Rourke sounds a tad Ringo Starr in this interview.

      Andy Rourke famous?
      Just like Moz?
      I agree he was and probably is a very good bass player.
      Good bass players are well respected in the music scene but to be just as famous as Moz more is needed.
      By the way, I very much doubt Andy Rourke wanted to be famous.
      Yes, in the Smiths. With Moz it was a burning ambition and whatever you think about that, he did it.
      He is an icon, there is no question about that.

      Hi Quandox3 :)

      before others jump in and gets escalated in verbal fight - can you please read properly what I wrote? Where did I write Andy Rourke is AS famous as Morrissey? Or if that he wanted to be famous? Or if I questioned Morrissey's icon status? My one sentence wasn't implicating any of these.

      Sorry musician, I misinterpreted your sentence.
      Of course they are both famous as such.

      By the way, before anyone thinks I dislike Andy Rourke for whatever he is or has done or said, to me he still is a great bass player and I do hope he can go on playing in a good band making great music. In a way he is underrated and deserves more credit for his playing.

      And he composed the music for Yes, I Am Blind! Such a great song and completely as great as any Moz/Marr composition. That tells me he is capable of much more then many people think. I know it is long ago but it happened!
      Cheers! :thumb:

      Because he's clearly mocking the book when talking to Peter Hook saying the only reason he skimmed through it was to see if he was mentioned. I can't remember Rourke in the book at all.
