    Who is writing songs that are better than Morrissey’s today?

    Even though Morrissey has, mostly, passed his peak he is still head and shoulders above other current songwriters. I love all of the new album and don’t hear anything as witty or exciting or even melodic.

    Which interview was it where M said he felt close to transsexualism?

    I think it may be from Nineteen Eighty-Hate.

    The Smiths-The Day I Was There TV feature

    They manage to have a little dig at Morrissey. I suppose he was the weakest link in the band.

    The Smiths San Remo 1987. Any footage of this specific performance?

    It was clearly the San Remo Festival in 1987 but there is no footage anywhere online of The Smiths in this garb. There is footage of the Festival but with different staging and outfits.

    Snippet of Morrissey recording Everyday is Like Sunday

    There used to be a recording of Morrissey in the studio discussing the “onyur face” line from EILS. Did I imagine it?

    I think Israel, in the song, is a person

    Morrissey often names people after places or things (Gelato, Skull Cap...) and I think Israel is talking to and about a person not a nation. This may have been discussed. Sorry if it has.

    Morrissey does play shows that aren’t sold out

    He played Wollongong near Sydney a couple of years ago and, referring to the venue being nowhere near sold out, said “It’s fine” or “It’s okay”. He also gets paid the agreed fee whether it’s a sell out or not. It’s the promoters that take the risk not the artist. To say he cancels shows that...

    There appears to be no content.

    Never forget, Johnny was horrible about Morrissey first...

    ...in an NME interview he really took the piss around the time of Kill Uncle. He called him Alf Wank in reference to Our Frank, a song Johnny has never bettered in his own career.

    Are The Smiths and Morrissey among the most written about bands and artists ever?

    In terms of books published surely Morrissey and The Smiths must be up there amongst the most highly documented.

    Does the negative press damage Morrissey's career and does he care?

    I know people gnash their teeth and say they're going to burn all their cds but really he is still very popular and is 20 times more successful than Johnny Marr overall if not more. For every fan that falls on their sword there is probably another one born who is intrigued by the fascinating old...

    What did Johnny Marr tell his fellow Smiths at the fish restaurant?

    Did he tell the band he wanted a break or want to leave? It seems he didn't leave until the NME story was leaked saying he had left.
