    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    Yes it was a success and Johnny’s doing well as a solo artist. Not debating that. Just really sad to see him singing the greatest songs in history opening for bands like The Courteeners and the Killers… A bit like if George Harrison would have sung Beatles songs opening for Shed Seven.

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    It does make sense as Marr is not a new artist starting in 2013. He has been a huge part of one of the greatest bands in history and plays songs of said band. On a late afternoon when everyone is waiting for headliners The Courteeners… This is sad as both Marr and Moz are still alive and could...

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    It is a sad fact that the great Johnny Marr now plays second fiddle to the Courteeners of all people. Morrissey would indeed never accept that

    Morrissey A-Z: "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful"

    Worse, these songs (this and Fatty) were unmarketable in the US. They had to wait for Tomorrow to make any sort of impact there. Which is a shame as he was at his peak in terms of popularity over there at this time. Still, I do enjoy it. Really fun song, great live, too, in Paris 1992, with...

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    Why is he playing in the afternoon? Who were headlining?

    Johnny Marr / Instagram: "Back in the same spot 38 years later. Camden Electric Ballroom. 21st May 1983."

    Exactly! If Johnny would once, once, come out in defense of Moz it would mean the world and could change everything but he stubbornly refuses to do so. A gentle tone of kindness for a start.

    Johnny should forget about the politics and just reach out to Moz. It’s Now or never…

    Poll Riot Fest Setlist Predictions?

    Didn’t he once say Rick Ghastly? Would be nice if he mentioned it one form or another.

    Morrissey A-Z: "That's How People Grow Up"

    A fun song, not a great song. Still highly enjoyable for me. 7,8

    Morrissey Replacing Nine Inch Nails at Riot Fest in Chicago (September 16, 2021)

    Then the question is: who will he choose? Not that many Moz-like artists on the other three days, if any.

    Fiona Dodwell: "Eight Tracks That Prove Morrissey Is As Great As He’s Ever Been" (June 23, 2021)

    Good picks! Especially Home is a Question Mark and Once I Saw The River Clean.

    Morrissey A-Z: "My Love, I'd Do Anything for You"

    Strong powerful opener, a bit like I Will See You in Far-Off Places on Ringleader. Not too subtle, but works as an opener. 8,1

    Noel Gallagher tells about time spent with Morrissey - Absolute Radio

    ‘One of the great British geniuses of all time’. Well said, Noel!

    Morrissey A-Z: "Maladjusted"

    Love it, comes to mind most stifled Friday’s ;) Joni-inspired, very inspired all the way. Unfortunately the rest of the album didn’t reach this level. 9,1

    Morrissey A-Z: "Lucky Lisp"

    One of my least favourites from Bona Drag. And still easily 8,6. Would have been a career high for many.

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    Yes, another great artist for whom music is more important than commercial success.

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    I think it’s hard to find anyone at Morrissey’s stage in his career releasing three albums in three consecutive years. From a commercial standpoint it is wiser to wait 3-4 years between albums, but Moz being so productive is more interesting these days than commercial notions.
