Re: Morrissey Isn't Even A Smithereen In Pop History
I think Bowie started this little quarrel by making some offhand comments during TM1 press Q interview. The Smiths may have still been intact at the time. DB called M's vocal melodies "weak". Bowie also stole M's hairstyle for the 90 tour. They have crossed paths a number of times, and have both traded subversive barbs, so it's hard to tell who's instigating what.
The only way M can get press for his latest disc is slag DB.
M may have a valid point, but I don't think it's a good idea for him to make such comments. If you really want to insult DB, make a better album than him!!!!!
While I do consider myself a fan of Morrissey's solo and group work I find the "sound" of his records suprisingly similar over the past 20 years.
