Re: Morrissey: Bowie was only relevant by accident new [re: bowiefanpeter]  

The whole notion of Bowie being this despised person I found very encouraging. The daily tabloids wrote hateful things and there were only one or two people at school who'd actually confess to liking David Bowie. I don't think that level of outrage exists anymore, people have forgotten how dramatic and serious it really was.

"The Slade and Faces contingents were particularly aggressive people, while those who liked Bowie, Mott The Hoople and Lou Reed tended to be slightly more passive and easily picked on. I remember standing outside concert halls in the early '70s, people would just walk past you and start kicking the queue. Everybody would just cower under a mass of Afghan coats."

I always thought of the English singer/songwriter Morrissey as a sort of a asexual Alan Bennett, the British playwright, because of his attention to detail. He will take a small subject matter and make a very grandeur statement of it.

His last album, "Your Arsenal", was produced, ironically, by Mick Ronson. Mick sent me a copy of the tape and I couldnīt but notice that one of the songs on the album, "I Know Itīs Gonna Happen Someday", was kind of a parody of one of my earlier songs, "Rockīn Roll Suicide". And so I sort of thought it would be fun to take that song and do it the way I would have done it."
