MESSAGES FROM MORRISSEY on MORRISSEY CENTRAL
I knew you know Hooky but not to the extent of chatting with him. That's brilliant. I have a ticket for Limerick in Nov 2022. I hope it goes ahead. Can't beat a Peter Hook concert. What an absolute living legend. I'm glad to hear he is doing well from a £ perspective. Only fitting.
Don’t forget his canoe’s that he parks at the mailboxes.I was due to see him at Manchester Apollo next month but it's been postponed until the summer. He does ok for himself as he gets royalties from all the stuff he recorded with Joy Division/New Order and a % of future earnings as he was part creator of the brand. He has a great house in Alderley Edge and a villa in Majorca and a nice range of cars!!
I had a pleasant afternoon chat with Hooky in a Hale restaurant after touching down from M’s Koln gig last March. That incidentally feels like it was 12 years ago now.I agree with you, music is just one part of his life and that's his job, just like we all have a job. Peter Hook made me laugh one night when he said Corona Virus has made me unemployed for the first time in my life. I pointed out that he makes over a million quid per year off Blue Monday alone without having to do anything. Morrissey is no doubt in a similar situation and like Peter probably has loads of other things going on to keep him in a good frame of mind!

Shame that Hooky has no time for his former mates thou. (Think NO had played the night before in Aus)
Didn’t get an offer for a ride in a canoe, though.
