Morrissey replacement? *gulps*

Just thinking aloud - thought the question merits debate....anyway, the question is:

when Morrissey returns to his life of solitude or shuffles off this mortal coil... do you think his band will/should continue (in which ever guise or lineup is recognisable as a Morrissey lineup) covering/playing Morrissey songs... or would that just be blasphemy?

They could get a Morrissey tribute singer to act as frontman.

Genuinely interested in others opinions on this!

You mean like Queen did without Freddie and The Doors without Jim?

Maybe Richard Hawley could fit the bill.....

Nah. I love Boz as much as the next girl, but it's not him I go to see.

Legally The Smiths was a partnership of Johnny Marr and Morrissey, when Johnny quitted he didn't allow Morrissey to use the name of the band.

...and your point is what exactly?:crazy:
No one mentioned The Smiths:rolleyes:

And for your grammer...... there is no such word as 'quitted'. 'Quit' would have been fine.

do you know Brel, much as i hate the idea of them continuing without him - i'd pay to see that!! :p:thumb:
one could arrange a lineup of the (soy)creme of his former musicians. They could belt out his wonderous tunes under a massive screen of frinkiness:blushing:

i'm starting to save for the tickets right now!!!

How would the above work legally Kewpie - do you reckon he'd limit the use of his image?
