Wow! Here are the comments from a Morrissey site! Without any editing at all!
Moz is slagging off Bowie in the NME this week it seems. And on the J Ross show. I quite like 70s Bowie stuff but he has been gone for a long time. In fact when Bowie played Glasgow in 1995, Moz was the support so me and few others got tickets - as you do. When Mozzer pulled out of the show, (fell out with Bowie) we had a decision - see Bowie or get a refund and go down the pub. No contest. The looks we got at the box office as they gave us our dosh back was hilarious!!! Would have been a good double bill though, but without Moz there was no point really!
For me if Bowie had packed it in around 1975 then he would have been a God but much of what he did in the early 1970's has been wiped out for me by some of the dross he has done since(and let's face it there has been a lot)
I was hoping Moz would grow out of slagging off other artists.It's a side of his character that I don't like.
I think Bowie was such a hero to him and when they finally met and toured and it went horribly wrong it was a huge disappointment to Morrissey.
Wouldn`t disagree with you on Tin Machine.That was a blip!
Hours was a large pile of shit. Heathen was a bit better - like a small pile of shit. I lost my faith in Bowie so I didn't even bother to buy Reality.
Weave a circle round him thrice, And close your eyes with holy dread
