    Professor Of Rock YT: "The 80's Song Guaranteed To Break Your Heart" (March 15, 2021)

    Asleep is probably their saddest song. Last Night I Dreamt is the one that pulls my heart strings the most though. Gets me every time. One of the all time best Smiths singles.

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    Completely agree - anxiety and depression and Irish melancholia are probably the origin of most of his 'difficult' behaviour, rather than any desire to be a prima donna.

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    Agree that homophobia often plays a part. Simon Amstell is a prat. It was quite funny though.

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    I agree that we probably shouldn't rely on the opinion of a half-wit in a wig - but there is plenty of other evidence that Moz can be 'difficult' at best. Street comes across as fairly honest and straight-forward - no reason to doubt his story. And he was right to complain about 'The Ordinary...

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    Tony is an interesting character. His 'allegation' is that Moz may not be a good human being. How many of us are? Was Tony? The same allegation could be made against many creative artists throughout history. Creative artists are often really awful people - and 'success' - quite a rare thing in...

    Nick Kent talks Morrissey and The Smiths in DN interview - Fredrik Strage / Morrissey 61 Facebook group

    You have to love Nick Kent for his hilarious performance on the South Bank Show documentary. As a teenager I watched a recording of this documentary on VHS so many times that I could have quoted every interviewee backwards in my sleep - sad I know! 'In ten years' time The Smith will be viewed...

    Morrissey Central "YOU MUST PLEASE REMEMBER" (March 3, 2021)

    Up there as one of Moz's best singles. And the Poly Styrene doc looks great. Mark Kermode - a big Moz fan, of course - gives it a very positive review in his weekly BBC review of new releases - about 3'30'' in: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000sprv/the-film-review-26022021

    Morrissey Central "THE NEXT DAY" (February 26, 2021)

    I agree - Outside was a real return to form. One of my favourite albums of the 90s.

    Morrissey Central "THE NEXT DAY" (February 26, 2021)

    I love 'Let's Dance' as a pop song. One of the great pop songs. Far from being my favourite Bowie track though. Bowie played at being a superstar, just like he played at being Ziggy or The Thin White Duke. It was clearly a role that he was keen to ditch after a few years, killing it off with...

    Morrissey Central "THE NEXT DAY" (February 26, 2021)

    Without Bowie there would be no New York Dolls and without artists like Bowie and Bolan and the Dolls there would be no Morrissey. Simple as that. Morrissey knows this, for all his carping at what Bowie became in the 80s. Bowie was drawn to artists like Morrissey because he represented what...

    most successful songwriting duos are a combination of light and dark, yin and yang. Johnny is clearly a sweet guy and a cool cat. well deserved award.

    You left out 'racist'. Isn't that your favourite epithet to chuck at people?
