The Atlantic's pandemic playlist includes "My Hurling Days Are Done"

The Atlantic (one of America's few sane media outlets these days) has a short piece about 13 songs to help get through the pandemic, and includes this great write-up (by James Parker) of "My Hurling Days Are Done":

Forgive him his trespasses, as he might—actually probably wouldn’t—forgive yours. A yodeler on the Alp of himself, calling in his lost sheep, his black sheep, his whipping boys, in that rich and curling tenor, this, ah, complex individual is still in magnificent voice, and still capable of writing superbly, as demonstrated by this cut from his new album, I Am Not a Dog On a Chain.

I'll stick my neck out and suggest that "A yodeler on the Alp of himself" is my favourite description of Morrissey, ever.

He'd forgive anyone as long as it didn't involve killing kittens, slagging him off in the press, not being The New York Dolls, or sending him an invoice.

It is one of the best descriptions.

What's this pic from? I've never seen this session.
Taken by Bryan Adams (yes that Bryan Adams) in Rome:

On a 2005 morning in Rome, Morrissey was prepping for a photo shoot with Adams when the photographer caught him out on a balcony, deep in a moment of contemplation. "At the time, I was shooting with a Rolleiflex camera, which is really quiet," Adams explains. "I don't know if he knew I was starting. I saw [the moment] and it was there. It seemed like a beautiful picture."
Info: Rolling Stone.

Reminded me of this photo shoot:

Holy shit. Really?

Somewhere in the very very back of my brain, under the fake floor, I recall something about that.

I loved Reckless and Into The Fire. Had 'em both on cassette.
