Well thank goodness 4 this!

An audio book is wonderfull news!

Would of been nice 2 see a bit more stuff about kristeenYoung within the book, mind you its not that surprising as everything that is truly precious and dear 2 morrissey, he keeps 2 himself and wont reveal!
Well there has 2 be some "secrets"! To know everyhting about morrissey would be a disaster!

I agrea its a shame that morrissey didnt read it himself, disapointed almost, just like patti smith did with her autobiorophy "just kids"
Patti smiths atuobiography is absoulty fantastic as she reads it herself, its as if your actually there with her in her journey in life, right from her hummble and pennyless beginnings as a poet and fine art artist, right up 2 her meteoric rise 2 become one of the worlds greatest outspoken activists and rock icons!
"The godmother of punk" !
Shes had a very colourfull life, belive me!
Id strongly urge anyone whos not listened 2 "just kids" 2 go and treat yourself this christmas and get yourself a copy! its available on amazon.co.uk anyone remotly interested in patti smith i promise you, you will NOT be dissapionted!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope when kristeen brings out her autobiography she will read it herself 2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ive done a fantastic life size tribute of kristeen! :)
Just hope I havent put 2 much of myself into it and corruped her!
Its not for sale at any price - its 4 kristeen should she want it!
Also not forgotten moz and patti smith 2! (how cud i not!)

But as this audio book is about morrissey and his life ect, im sure it will still be a wonderfull delight and a fantastic joy 2 listen 2 even if it is read by someone else !!! a shame but its still wonderfull !
Just watched the u-tube clip put up of david morrissey and hes actually has very similar mannerisims to morrissey himself! A good job well done!

I know what a few lucky people will be getting in the x-mas stocking this year !!!!!!!!! :)

Ah, I can see the promo material now.

"Autobiography, complete and unabridged, read by

David

MORRISSEY."

Yes, that's exactly what I think. It's a little joke that will fool a good percentage of the people that buy it long enough to get their cash. Talk about laughing all the way to the bank.

But you can't blame Morrissey. I know he wrote the book but I'm pretty sure he hasn't read it.
 
I was so excited for a few seconds there. As I've been reading Autobiography I've been wishing he would do an Audiobook, so Mozzer could read me to sleep. Now I'm just truly disappointed. Truly, truly, Truly.

Don't be a baby. Moz has done many recorded songs and interviews for your listening pleasure. The Audiobook is for the benefit of the blind and illiterate. Don't be a baby.

The voice of McDonalds' vomit inducing adverts, has Moz gone mad ?

Atomised To Say The Least
Despite hailing from Liverpool, David's voice now has a touch of posh-Manc, or indeed posh-Yorkshire about it. He has a wonderful speaking voice, and is a great choice for the audio version.

Wonder what he's going to do about the poetry/lyric sections though? Will he attempt to sing them?

They should get Andrew Marr to read out Johnny's parts, and Dave Lee Travis to interpret Geoff.....

....then again, maybe not!

Uh oh. I hope Neil and Mary Manin are available as back up.

He should just read it. He might be busy though.

Given that Moz allows himself the moral justification in wearing suede shoes(as he has admitted to in interviews before), maybe there are some things he's content to turn a blind eye to, as long as it benifits his art or career in the long run?

WHen you think about it it's not such a big deal, he shakes hands with carnivores every night of a tour. The only hangup is that he's the "voice" of what he's had shutdown in order to perform at a venue. A temporary voice, but still. Maybe a good way to look at it is it's like a reformation; the voice of the evil guy has been transformed into the voice of the good guy. Just let it go maybe.

Re: TTY - David Morrissey to voice Autobiography audio book.

A scouser?!

What's your problem?
Morrissey's choice is a regional accent.
Morrissey himself thankfully doesn't have a strong mancunian accent (Shaun Ryder) but a soft, warm Irish lilt.
I guess he wanted an accent which is nearest to an Irish accent and the Liverpool one is the closest.

You are a delusional cult sycophant.There's absolutely no reason why any sensible person should 'maybe' let this BigMac AudioBook go, or the suede shoes. Or the boasting of leather designer furniture, or the slaughter porn of dairy cows used to soundtrack "Meat is Murder" so Morrissey can remain within the cult of Carnism eating dairy and wearing suede, whilst being an advocate of it by refusing to live a plant-based diet.

Morrissey is revealed as an absolute hypocrite who lambasts festival goers for eating kebabs whilst working with those who seek to increase the sales of torture/slaughter fast food. He berates an entire civilisation in China yet works with those in league with Burger Business.

Given that Moz allows himself the moral justification in wearing suede shoes(as he has admitted to in interviews before), maybe there are some things he's content to turn a blind eye to, as long as it benifits his art or career in the long run?

With this disclosure about David Morrissey, there's really nothing left to say. Except thanks to you all, and to your ridiculous cult leader, for proving such a fruitful research project on the nature of fame, fans, delusional cults and the failure of music as a serious art form.

A stroke of Mozzerian genius, even funnier than getting the book printed as a Penguin Classic.

Can't wait for the know-it-alls to deconstruct this news!


Consider yourselves, your cult totally deconstructed and note that Morrissey has pressed the button marked "self-destruct". Oh, what an ending!

The voice of McDonalds' vomit inducing adverts, has Moz gone mad ?

Yes, don't join him. Don't drink the Kool-Aid:

"3 November 2013 David reads Morrissey
Penguin Classics will release a complete and unabridged digital download of Morrissey's Autobiography on 5 December 2013.vThe audiobook is read by acclaimed actor [and voice of McDonald's advertisements]: David Morrissey."

http://true-to-you.net/morrissey_news_131103_01

Goodbye. And, er, thanks for playing along "Morrissey". You couldn't make this up! LOL!

"BrummieBoy"

ps. Morrissey's career epitaph:

"Now the laborers and cablers and council-motion tablers were just passing by
And the Gothy types and scoffy types and like-their-coffee-frothy types
were just passing by

Those on their own whilst on the phone dunking McNuggets and just having a mome’
were just passing by…"

"Actor David Morrissey reads their words. A 60-second and a 40-second version of the advert will air. The campaign includes outdoor boards (shown) and print executions highlighting people’s relationship with their favorite McDonald’s foods."

I won't join in, I was surprised no one else had already brought up the McDonalds thing when I originally posted it - surely Moz was aware, anyone who's watched TV in the last 2 years would know that (in the UK at least, I'm guessing it's nowhere else). I was in shock when I saw it on TTY. The thing is I think it's an absolute disgrace but I still want to hear it despite the shortcomings of the book (so maybe in your parlance I am drinking the Kool-Aid after all), I'm just pissed off he's chosen him after everything that's been said and done. Maybe it's simply his surname that swung it and makes up for the McD involvement, god knows what he's thinking. So I guess in response to my original question of 'has Moz gone mad' I'm thinking your answer of yes may be correct unfortunately.

Has anyone suggested yet that Morrissey do a cameo on the Walking Dead? :D
