the sense of place in Morrissey's songs has always been very strong...and his work has been most significantly based in Manchester, London, LA and Rome. Which city that he has lived in so far do you think has inspired the best work and why?

Manchester. Obviously Manchester. Each of the other cities he's written about all have Manchester as an implicit point of reference.
 

Gregor Samsa

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
He did his best solo stuff while scavenging through the streets of London, but his spirit will always be essentially mancunian.
