I forgot, did he have a poster above his bed or something? I just remembered that because of the shirts the band were wearing in LA.

What was the significance of the shirts? I was fairly close at both Universal shows but couldn't make them out properly. The parts I did view, I couldn't reference. Any help? Thanks

I thought Jimmy Dean was the one Morrissey was obsessed with...

yes true, but in the mean time i have found what I thought I once read:

---Morrissey's house is a luxurious mixture of Hispanic and Italianate influences, harmonised by a Californian sense of hugely expensive privacy. Inside, the cool, Roman-looking rooms are elegantly austere. Two framed photographs of Steve McQueen, the size of major portraits by Gainsborough, dominate the principal rooms.----

Also Steve Mcqueen was used as a backdrop a few tours ago.

Yeah, i've seen "The Importance Of Being Morrissey" a while ago, it shows the posters on his wall etc.
The man has great taste in films (and actors).
