Patti Smith and her Band

It’s true. Morrissey very clearly has no awareness of contemporary music, which shows in both his own work and his “curatorial style.”
Actually it doesn't specifically say Morrissey is curating anything. It was worded in a purposeful way so one might jump to that conclusion ( and sell tickets on short notice) but like every Riot Fest event, the curating is done by Riot Fest. I think Riot Fest "curated" a lineup whose crowd wouldn't be antagonistic toward Morrissey. As the headlining act, maybe Morrissey can reject a particular opener but I don't see more involvement than that.It was announced a couple of weeks ago that the support bands would be curated by Morrissey.
How do you know about Roz leaving his gf (wife?) and kid. I can never find any news online about Roz. Did he do it after his solo album The Defenestration of St.Martin? Cos the first song on that is about his abusive father who left them when he was small.Brilliant.
Poor old Jesse must be having a bad year. Alain is back, who he publically bitched about and now so is Kristeen who not only did he bitch about but whose partner publicly wiped the floor with him, calling him thick etc
You have to be a bit a dummy to let TV throw shade - Tony is the biggest grifter going. Everybody knows he and KY used to bitch about Bowie for years, right up to his death- in fairness, Bowie spent lots of the 90s talking smack about Tony as well.
TV was more a super studio hand, rather than a super producer, which is why there are no great none Bowie and Bolan lps - his lp with Sparks was awful, his production on Ms Lp was piss poor and so on
KY herself was a troubled soul maybe she's changed, she is very American and falls for the whole "star system" . The trouble is, she isnt really part of it and she knows it,
She stands for woman power but has got everywhere on the backs of men. Tony gets her gigs -I will do your lp , will you take KY on tour?
M made her "known" , at least in Morrissey world. If i were him I would be careful, KY never appreciated what he did for her. In fact she only wanted him to do more. She was always talking smack about him to the M fans she befriended.
I expect lots are taking advantage of M's post-death state of mind, it happens a lot. I hope he is ok, and has the right people around him.
KY is of course friends with man face April , who is one of those "super fans" who never really got M. Deeply into brit pop , she jumped ship when M fell out of fashion. She hangs with Billy Bragg, who we all know stuck many knives in M's back and she even married Martin from Gene - poor martin, tried to rip off his own band and left his gf and kid to be with April, well she is a monied American.
Its OK to do that kind of thing, as long as you are publically left-wing, of course.
