"Rock’s ploughed its own furrow for 30 years but still music magazines don’t give rock its due and still rave on about Nick Drake. How many more front covers do Paul McCartney and Morrissey need? Our album will sell more than Morrissey’s so why don’t we get the same kind of respect?"

Rolling Stone columnist Rob Sheffield has just launched his book "Talking to Girls About Duran Duran: One Man's Quest for True Love and a Cooler Haircut". According to Spinner, at a reading in Brooklyn, NYC yesterday (21 July) he focused on excerpts revealing the formative influence of Morrissey on his youth:

  - ...For all their wisdom, the Sheffield girls couldn't save young Rob from Morrissey. 'Talking to Girls About Duran Duran' centers on how Sheffield's adolescence was shaped by '80s music, and in the first of two passages he read Wednesday, the author acted out an imaginary dialogue with the former Smiths singer, a wellspring of suspect advice Sheffield once regarded as an infallible Fonzie-like shaman. As he imitated the misanthropic icon, quoting some of his best-known lyrics, Sheffield used not a lilting Manchester accent, but rather a clipped Clint Eastwood bark.

Asked during the Q&A session to name the worst piece of advice he ever took from Morrissey, Sheffield cited 'I Don't Owe You Anything,' from the first Smiths album, in which Moz, angry at his lover for daring to leave the sanctuary of their apartment and venture into the outside world, sings, "You should never go to them/let them come to you/just like I do."

"When I was 18, I was like, 'Yeah!'" Sheffield said, drawing knowing laughs from an audience containing more than a few Smiths fans. "Of course, that's terrible advice to give any 18-year-old. It's like giving them a toaster to play with in the bathtub..."
