Of course Johnny Marr doesn't have this problem ,because 25 yrs have past and the total sum of his post smithsI find it embarrassing that an artist of Morrissey's stature is resorting to this kind of popularity pissing contest - as though it matters at all whether the book is at no.1 or no.3, really. He's like a man staring in the mirror each morning, saying over and over to himself: "I AM a genius", "no I really am a genius"... "I am a GENIUS..." etc, etc in an endless cycle of insecurity and self-validation.
This obsession is really typical of what Morrissey has become. He has lost credibility with his sorry choice of musicians and lackluster songs.
Additionally, if he would actually issue some sort of statement regarding that stupid ass blog site and give it his blessing (further nailing his place in a respected artist losing his way) or order it be shut down an dthe jerkoffs over there who fall at every word that is published can move on from their delusion.
I mean seriously, how is anyone ever going to look at him as a respected lyricist if he acknowledges and blesses the kindergarten graphics and delusional conspiracy theories there?
How sad is he--we'll let you know.
FACT. They were all extras, sadly for them. The English can forgive everything but success, Rupert Ev played the master OW (who was hated for his talent and originality and betrayed) beyond expectations! Dublin theatre lives on after seeing that performance! (Going off topic I know) London Theatre should forget the blue rinse day trippers chugging into the West End on National Express coaches, and get back to true theatre! Marr and Co were just DAFT (said in a Manc accent) local council house boys who happenened to meet a Genius, who took them off the dole queue! (They would be working in Morrisons, Cheadle but for him) Happy 2014 Andrew...I always love that one...
