Anybody else hoping for Bowie to publically respond with a good zinger?

No. Bowie should ignore him. His own remarks speaks volumes about himself than it does about Bowie.

In other words, put the Moz on his Bozo list.

Re: The Idiot new [re: tonyinsf]  

Bowie's not really one to get into flame wars with other artists, even if there are differences.

This is just the kind of press Bowie doesn't need now though. We, in the Bowie camp, are intelligent and informed enough to know that this is just Morrissey talking shit, and we have heard Bowie's recent output and can make our own judgements. But the average fan might not know that. It's true that Bowie's sales now are nothing impressive and a lot of people are idiots and will just take Morrissey's comments at face value and store them in their heads with no opinion of their own to tie to it. If Bowie really wants to enter into another period of experimentation, he needs a strong following of fans to go with him on that journey. The tour is helping, but he needs support from other artists that respect him. Not this shit.

I'll be seeing YOU in New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, Kansas City, St. Louis, Washington DC, Moline, Wantagh, and Holmdel. So dress sharp.

This raises an interesting question. Some of you people didn't hesitate at all when you decided to slag off Reality when it came out but you're more than willing to see Mozza as the big, bad antichrist.
Isn't he allowed to be disappointed with Bowie's recent output, just like you?

The God you love is gone
He lies broken by your shame
The thing that took his place already died

Eulogy new [re: RabbitFighter]  

You are, of course, absoultely right. He has every right to make a personal comment about Bowie's current output and career. I think the problem that everyone's picking on, though, is that he's overgeneralising his own position to include Bowie fans in general who he couldn't possibly speak for. True, there were a lot of people criticising the album and tour here (myself included), who would probably agree with the statement that Bowie is presenting a fairly populist front at the moment. However, Morrissey then goes on to contradict that assertion, claiming that noone's interested in Bowie's current direction, which is clearly wrong if sales figures are anything to go by. I think Reality is a dull album but I know I'm in the minority because it has fulfilled its aim of acheiving a certain amount of popularity, at least moreso than just about all of the albums from the past decade. Still, I think most of this has been covered before.

See him on TV this week new [re: poorsoul]  

If one one is concerned about the direction Bowie is going in, then why does he keep talking about it?

This week, he'll be on "The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn" for a sit down interview on May 24, and then for the rest of the week, he will appear as the musical guest each night.

Kilborn: "His music conveys the loneliness and despair of a man hosting a 12:30 a.m. talk show on CBS."

In reply to:

The Smiths were great, but this is due to Johnny Marr

who has done exactly what since the smiths ended?

Um.... The The with Matt Johnson, which shat all over the Smiths stuff anyways. He's also worked with Billy Bragg, Bryan Ferry, Talking Heads, Kirsty MacColl, The Cult, Pet Shop Boys, The Pretenders, Beth Orton, Ian McCulloch, Black Grape, Beck, Neil Finn, Bert Jansch and Bernard Butler.

A pussy with a machinegun? new [re: pablopicasso]  

I just saw the album cover this morning in the "New Release" section of my Best Buy advert in the Sunday Newspaper.

If you don't have anything nice to say, go to London and say it in front of 2000 people. NM.

Re: Nothing Delivered In Decades new [re: hangontoyourself]  

After seeing Morrissey on Johnathon Ross a couple of days ago, I've decided he is THE most IRRITATING person on the planet, more than Brian Ferry, more than John "I'm so boring" Peel.

If you think we're gonna make it...

Re: Nothing Delivered In Decades new [re: hangontoyourself]  

Was anyone here in the audience for this show, what was Ross' reaction to his outburst?

Believe everything I say,especially the lies.
