      It looks like KS has decided to rate all of my comments as Troll. Very mature as though 2 can't play at that. Don't bother responding, I have you blocked so I won't see it anyway.

      Very interesting and surprisingly good vocals from Johnny Marr, but he's never gonna topple Morrissey, on vocals or style, theirs something about Morrissey walking up to the mic that nobody can impersonate, I love when Morrissey walks out at a gig, still makes me tingle now, nobody can replace that.

      I think if he REALLY wanted to prove a point he'd play what many guitarist say is the hardest Smiths song to play AND sing the vocals at the same time. That point being, "I can sing all your songs and play my crazy guitar parts."

      I'm not surprised he didn't do both. It would be quite a challenge. I don't know a lot of musicians besides Geddy Lee from Rush who will play insanely difficult parts (bass) and sing at the same time. I'm sure there are others but it just isn't common.

      On the flip side, it is the best vocal performance from him I've ever seen (and it was a very good one). He usually keeps things pretty mono-tone even when doing Smiths songs such as Bigmouth Strikes Again. Clearly all the singing he has been doing over the past few years is raising skill level.

      Perhaps someday he will in fact do them both, it wouldn't surprise me.

      In contrast to Moz, Johnny Marr and band played 52 shows in a row with no cancellations! If he has bits that work and the audience responds to, what's wrong with that? That's entertainment!

      I dunno.. I want them to sound like the songs I fell in love with. If they are a bit different because they are better that's great but when It's Hard to Walk Tall When You're Small is turned from a cool rocker with a fun riff to play and a great rhyming structure that plays out where the last word of verse 1 rhymes with the last word of verses 2 and 3 into some flat, boring turd of a song that makes me long for "To Give (The Reason I Live) I say "No thanks!" to "new" even if there is an equally shitty demo of said song giving one the ability to say "It's not really new".

      He doesn't put the guitar down because he's feeling confident - it's simply because he can't sing it and play the lead guitar line at the same time, yer flipping great clown.

      Yeah, it takes all sorts, don’t it? Some like nostalgia acts some don’t.

      Maybe some have misread that post, so when I said ‘ Make it new, isn’t that why we like the music we do in the first place?’ I meant, for example, the first time we all heard the Smiths
      didn’t it sound fresh and new and original to us?

      Which was why I said that I was a little disappointed that the other Smiths songs Morrissey has decided to do sound closer to the original so yes enjoyable but would be more exciting/interesting if he changed them like what he did with Charming Man.

      People don’t get it,they try to blame Jesse for the new version of Charming Man when they in fact should be blaming Morrissey ! :lbf:

      Actually they should be thanking Morrissey
      for not giving them what they predictably want !

      Never a dull moment in MOZ land. :thumb:
