    I’ve narrowed it down to either Bobby Short or Rob Halford. :lbf:

    I’m guessing it’s a merging of different characters including himself.


    Someone hiding their addiction or sexuality or both because they are ashamed of it (?) Also made me think of Willam Burroughs, but, they also ‘sing’, and William wasn’t a singer, nor was he ashamed of anything he had done.

    Actually, the other day I was wondering if anyone knew who the girl in ‘Girl Least Likely To’ is? Since Morrissey has said that it was a real person in his life.


    Anyone?

  7. Bobby Hatfield?

    "The pleasure you bring to us whenever you sing for us" -- Bobby Hatfield is one of Morrissey's favourite singers. If the song is about drugs, Hatfield died from a heart attack brought on by cocaine use.

    Afaict, the song seems to be about a rock musician who develops a drug problem, but is cautioned not to expect sympathy and kindness from the people he works with, because such people are typically self-interested bastards.

    I wonder if it was originally titled 'Bobby, You Have Left the Smiths'.

    This has been solved in another thread. But just in case you haven't seen it, Bobby is Bobby Ewing. Morrissey was a MASSIVE Dallas fan. Bobby was on drugs, fell into a drug fuelled coma and died.
