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

Bowie interview for TM1 Q#33 June 1989 P. 70:

DB: (Talking about current english music scene)...What is happening there at the moment?

Q: Hardcore, deep house, various types of world music, Morrissey is still very popular....

DB: Oh he isn't bad. I thihnk he is an excellent lyric writer. I've never been able to come to term with his melodies. I'm a suck for an old fashioned melody and I find his very disparate. They tail off a lot. But I think his lyrics are absolutely superb. One of the better writer than England -- and it's very English -- has produced over the past few years. I don't know much about his image or what he's about because I've never seen him live but I like the records.
-------------

That's all the Morrissey part of the interview. I recalled this because of all the 100's of DB interviews he never goes into great detail on other current artists. The quote, including this magazine profile, is intentionally designed by Bowie to be read by Morrissey himself. This quote, which could be construed as a backhanded compliment, also predates the 95 tour debacle.

The only thing I can add about this interview is that it's from the TM period. Bowie has still dating the Glass Spider Dancer, had yet to meet Iman and was still in a "cranky" state(listen to TM1 if you want proof)

I just wanted to add this quote because Bowie was, then, in the creative gutter. And he took some verbal jabs at Morrissey. Bowie hasn't made his own barbed comments in magazines.
