Morrissey: Bowie was only relevant by accident  

Agree or disagree?

Smiths Legend Morrissey Speaks With GQ About a Reunion, Getting Older and Why David Bowie Is No Longer Glamorous
Monday March 15, 12:04 pm ET

NEW YORK, March 15 /PRNewswire/ -- In the April edition of GQ, editor-in-chief Jim Nelson was granted a rare opportunity to visit with Smith's legend, Morrissey, at his home in Los Angeles, to talk about the release of his first solo album in seven year and his former band, the Smiths:

    * On the formation of the Smiths:  "I had absolutely nothing else.  And it
was also a calling, because it instantly became successful, and it
didn't require a great deal of effort. Preparation, yes, but not the
effort."

* On the break-up of the Smiths: "It is commitment, because for me it was
a huge emotional investment, and then Johnny [Marr] simply said 'It's
over.' And I don't think he understood the investment that I had made
in it.

* On the re-formation of the Smiths: "I get tired of being asked about
re-formations, because there's really only one way to answer on a given
question, and I feel I gave the answer 112 years ago, but people still
ask me, and I can't understand why."

* On getting older: "I absolutely love it. The older I get, the better I
feel. I'm fascinated by people in their eighties and nineties.
Especially those who are still creating and living in an interesting
way.

* On David Bowie: "(He is) not the person he was. He is no longer David
Bowie at all. Now he gives people what he thinks will make them happy,
and they're yawning their heads off. And by doing that, he is not
relevant. He was only relevant by accident."

Jim Nelson's piece, Morrissey Returns! is in the April issue of GQ on newsstands nationwide on Tuesday, March 23, 2004. GQ is the leading men's general-interest magazine and part of the Conde Nast Publications, Inc.
