I've a feeling he's pissed off because Bowie wouldn't let Morrissey $uck his c*ck backstage when he opened for him.


I must be Beavis . . . or Butthead . . . or just plain silly on a Friday afternoon, because I found this extremely funny!

Seriously, though, what was the nature of Bowie and Moz's "falling out"?

Re: The Idiot new [re: zigbot]  

This reminds me of something that i hadn't figured out.

The DB/NIN tour had 5 weeks of rehearsal where the worked out the segueway between their 2 sets. Did the DB/M tour have similar rehearsals before opening night or did they plan to do equal sets and one duet?

Re: The Idiot new [re: tonyinsf]  

Morissey's constant anti-Bowie comments are a bit irritating but if You are the quarry indeed is as great as I suspect (i'm basing my assumptions on snippets i've heard plus the single), i'm more than willing to forgive him.
Infact, if I had to choose between Bowie and Morrissey (i'm including Smiths here) there's no doubt about it: Thin white duke would be the one left behind. Okay, it would be one tough decision but i'd still pick Morrissey. The guy knows how to get inside my head...

The boy with the thorn in his side new [re: hangontoyourself]  

Right. It's just that I'm suspicious of people who brand someone's entire output as shit without showing much evidence that they've heard much of it. Just be careful in future. One of the reasons why the Morrissey fans might know more about Bowie's work than we about Morrissey is that they're at least clued-up about Bowie in 70s, bearing in mind Morrissey has regularly cited him as an influence, though they may well be simply reworking Mozza's comments about his 90s stuff without having heard it themselves. It appears that Bowie, at one stage at least, did like Morrissey/Smiths, from his comments here, and obviously had some considerable respect for him to tour with him and cover one of his songs . . . so it's possible I might listen to some of his post-Smiths stuff eventually.

A sad old joke. new [re: tonyinsf]  

In reply to:

He does have one nice thing to say though: "One thing to Bowie credit: He has refused to accept a knighthood." But then he follows it up by saying, "Probably because he wants to be, I dunno, Lady-in-Waiting."


Well without going into too much detail, this is right up Morrisey's street isn't it?

Morrisey has absolutely nothing to offer the musical world anymore

Re: A sad old joke. new [re: diamondogz74]  

I can't help liking the music of Morrissey and The Smiths, although I notice a lot of you people don't. I even like the new single (and the cover Bowie did of 'I Know...', i'm sure you all hate me now).

Now, I didn't know about the comment he made on Bowie 'till now, but I did watch Jonathon Ross last night. Even without knowing anything about the quotes that weren't broadcasted, I was still planning to post a thread about what a prick Moz was on that show! Though some parts were hard to follow for me (I'm dutch-speaking), but it was easy to notice how pretentious and arrogant his whole attitude was. He couldn't laugh with any of the jokes Jonathan made, and his reaction on the fragment from 'stars in their eyes' was very childish. It's gonna be hard for me to still enjoy his music now... or shouldn't that make any difference?

Just to make things clear: for me, the artistic battle between Bowie and Moz is easily won by Bowie. Give me a Bowie-gig or -album any day.

You were surprised? That's the genuine Morrissey for you: arrogant as hell and dead serious. If you're really into his music I find it hard to believe that you were expecting anything else.

Re: A sad old joke. new [re: RabbitFighter]  

I'm not really into his music, I just own 'best of the smiths I and II' and 'suedehead, the best of Morrissey' and they pleased me. Actually, I found some of his lyrics (at least those from the smiths) quite funny, but maybe they weren't meant to be so. I hadn't really thought 'bout what kind of a man he would be. I guess this has opened my eyes...

The sminths were great, period.
But alas the whole was greater than the parts.

Believe everything I say,especially the lies.
