Morrissey @ Webster Hall in 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Morrissey

Billboard has a new interview with Morrissey where they ask him about that Ramones review he wrote as a kid. Morrissey says:

I came clean about this many years ago. When I bought the Ramones first album on import, I was enraged with jealousy because I felt they had booted the Dolls off the map. I was 100% wrong. Three days after writing that Ramones piece, I realized that my love for the Ramones would out-live time itself. And it shall. Well, it virtually has already. If the Ramones were alive today, they'd be the biggest band in the world. It takes the world 30 years to catch on, doesn't it? I mean, look at poor Nico. Every modern teenager now seems to love Nico, yet while she was alive she couldn't afford a decent mattress.
And about the Smiths:
The solo years have been more meaningful to the audiences than the Smiths years, but the press in England only write about me in relation to the Smiths era. This exhausts me. I wish the press were more willing to chronicle these recent tours and the most recent albums. But they won't do it. Their needle stuck at 'The Queen is Dead.' I've sold out large venues throughout five continents this year alone - with incredible reactions everywhere. Yet the press will only blather on about Smiths reunion rumors. You can well imagine the frustration. Thank God I have a strong chin.
Morrissey is now on tour and played Fallon last night.

It deserves repeating...it's almost starting to be "give us a Smiths reunion or shut up" time.

Morrissey's solo albums classics in my book.

"morrissey's solo stuff is boring."

Huh? The first few solo albums are great. With any group, it is hard to be consistent after 10+ years.

6:52- its easy to say hes class considering he never does anything worth mentioning

He likes cheeseburgers and hangs out with Marr and goes to western sizzlin

It's taken me 20 years to realize that Marr is what makes the Smiths so amazing. Marr's playing is somewhat understated but always compelling.

Morrissey has written more good songs solo than he did with the Smiths. Mainly because he's written more songs solo, but it's true.

Show at RCMH will kill it. It will be epic. I'm expecting a 150+ comment Morrissey review here on Oct. 11. Concert of the year by far.

For some reason I always thought this guy was Kurt Cobains dad.

I would still totally bed this man
His music is glorious

I respect Morrissey for doing what he does, and being one of the only pop artists these days with any scruples.

Haven't kept up with his last few albums, but his solo stuff is fine. Johnny Marr was not the talent in that relationship. Every Johnny Marr as bandleader project has been terrible.

My father works for Heinken and he told me this weekend that Blur, Muse and Depeche Mode are the headliners for Coachella. Heineken is sponsoring this year again.

I love this band! I'd love to go on a show, sorry that came here where I live when I could not go, I'm in São Paulo in Brazil, but now I'm ready
