Tony Parsons writes about meeting Morrissey in the June GQ (English edition)

I'm sucker for reading GQ and Esquire magazines. Both the UK and American editions. Came across this little bit about Morrissey written by Tony Parsons in the June GQ (English edition). I don't think it's been acknowledged on Morrissey Solo. Tony's column was looking at how the older you get rock music seems less relevant. Morrissey and Julie Burchill together. Now that would be a good gossip session. Opening paragraph.


"I realised that rock music was getting a bit long in the tooth on the day that Morrissey came around to my house for tea.

I was newly married, and as I fussed over the tea and biscuits, my young wife called out to me when she saw our visitor approaching.

"Darling" she said. "There's an old man coming up the garden path". I almost dropped the Jaffa Cakes. An old man? Morrissey? An old man? This was not last week. This was way back in the 20th century when Morrissey's solo career still seemed like a bit of a novelty, and the Smiths still loomed large in what was once called youth culture.

But my wife was in her early twenties at the time. And to her, this rock icon looked as though the might need a bit of help across the road, or perhaps be off to the shops to splash out on a couple of tins of cat food. He certainly didn't look young, or vibrant, or potent - all those things that rock music had looked like for as long as I could remember.

An old geezer called Morrissey. I remember that he was fabulous company - as sharp and funny and starling as the songs. "Ohhh," he said, as he looked at my bookcase. "I can already see half a dozen books that I want to borrow."

He went away with a first edition of Albert Goldman's Elvis biography and he still hasn't given it back. An it was a lovely afternoon - like sharing English breakfast tea and Jaffa Cakes with Oscar Wilde. But something changed for me that day.

Morrissey came up our garden path and my young wife saw someone from an older generation. I suddenly realised rock music itself was becoming a lot like bingo. You had to be of a certain age to really enjoy it."

The question is who's more asinine, Kate2828 or Romeogirl? Based on what they wrote they are like the majority of Morrissey fans either fat and ugly or tossers and pillow biters. To be such a fan of this irrelevant has been like the two of them is pretty pathetic.



LOL I'm laughing, I'm laughing, I'm laughing. I don't believe this. You don't know which end is which. Isn't it?
Now bleed bitch bleed.

Take care wench,
Kate2828

Jesus! If you truly think that site is hilarious, you have my pity. But apparently you are easily amused as well as likely easily distracted by shiny objects.

Time wasted on that site would be better spent digging ditches or picking apples or other tasks easily handled by simpletons.

To the now “old”, washed up wife, suck my d**k. You talk that shit about Morrissey? How do you feel “now” Ms., whoops Mrs. … that’s if your husband hasn’t ditched you yet for some younger bitch. Who is prettier like you were? “Were”, get it? Isn’t it?

You’re probably divorced, you stupid whore, because you ain’t in your twenties no more. Thing is Morrissey, yes Morrissey has ALWAYS been drop dead gorgeous. Actually, Ms., (now that you are divorced), if you didn’t see it, you got issues. Because Morrissey is more beautiful now, even more handsome now even now that he is 52.

Reality check. We all get older. Age is inevitable. I thought I couldn’t see so good, but then damn, your vision apparently is terrible.

And by the way, if you all wanted your Elvis book back, then you should have ASKED Morrissey for it.
Now go f**k yourself, you old bitch.

F**k you,
Kate2828

Please, for the sake of your own sanity, relax, read stuff that isn't about Morrisssey, go on holiday, stuff like that.

"The only thing this article accomplishes is exposing Parsons for his near-paedophelia. That he took his ignorant young wife's perspective as his own to write this vapidness speaks to his own loss of relevance, not M's and not rock music. "

It's almost as if you guys don't realise there is a world out there that lends people like Morrissey a thing called "context". Context is things like your wife, your kids, your house, what you do from day to day - stuff that matters. As opposed to your obsession with 1 singer.

Have none of you ever made a flippant observation, or is this journalist the first one to transgress and that's the reason you're all in a position to judge?

Two gigs. Bloody whining so-lowers still aren't happy, of course. I looked bored apparently. Or tired. Oh age will do that to you. But I still turned up and sang for you all didn't I? Unlike many of you, of course, collecting your benefits at the expense of the hard-pressed British taxpayer... Oh I'm too tired to work, oh I have a bad back. Or ME. Or severe athlete's foot. I think I'd better stay in bed and listen to old Mozza again. Shame he's so bored and tired these days. Lazy sod. Oh I need another dose of morphine for my IBS. Right, time to sign on, I think, if I can be bothered. Oh sod it, there's always next week... Still, Kate2828 appears to have all her buttons on, as they say in parts of Doncaster. Excellent comments. She's a girl who obviously works, unlike many of you. Get a job you lazy swine. Yes, you.

I notice that ugly c*** Parsons is making accusations of theft against me on the dreary so-low site. More unsubstantiated rumours. Still, it'll never stick. Not with my lawyers... B*gger it. I sacked them, didn't I? Sh*te. Still, I suppose I could send a 'Cease and Desist' order myself. Save on the lawyers' fees.

'Kate2828' and the pathetic waste of space behind this 'blog' are one and the same person. This is fact, not opinion by the way. Shame this person has none of the wit of the real Morrissey.

My young wife spoke in her young wife's voice, as young wife's tend to do when being both wifely and young. I couldn't help noticing that as young wife spoke to me that she was both: a) young; and b) my wife. Did I mention that I have a young wife?
