Great call. Totally agree.
Yeah. Richard Butler is my #2, after Morrissey. Then, now…love always. It's impossible to look away from him, and he knows. He knows he's cool as hell, which makes him even cooler.
"Sleep Comes Down" is one of the greatest, most underrated Furs songs. And watching him perform it is hypnotizing.
Also: As happy as I am for his lungs, I do miss watching RB smoke on stage. Nobody ever looked better smoking a cigarette.
i saw them play with the happy mondays not very long ago and it was fun though ive never been a fan of the band.
As far as guys playing guitar and singing:
morrison for sure fits the bill as he for sure had it. he had people listening to him on the street before he did any music. lydon was also really really good at being a frontman as was kurt cobain
yeah i have rays light my fire bio and morrison: life death legend as well as two film docs and the bio movie etc but i dont factor best frontman qualities into sales figures. the whole did he show his penis bit seemed to be pretty classically rebellious on stage and a great moment for a great frontman. recording his vocals in the bath, the whole ed sulivan bit along with tons and tons of other examples. when hed put you in the trance and then break it suddenly so you felt a shock is a good example of how he consciously tried to work with the audience who adored him. just sayin
