Honey, nobody knows. Your best bet is to buy a ticket to a gig, wait in the queue so you make the front row, and put it in his hand yourself. That's the only way.
Yes, it seems that's the best bet. But this thread reminds me of an incident known as the Chicago hoax back around '98, just after the 1997 tour, where some malicious prankster who had backstage access got a hold of notes fans handed to Morrissey.
Morrissey's pained expression must have been because he was wondering how long you were going to moan on with your complaints. I'd have retired years ago if I had to deal with fans like that.
oh wow i had never heard about that hoax before. that was a really interesting story
i mean i could imagine him reading most of the letters that are handed to him, but what would someone do with so many crumpled up letters once they've been read?
You must be right because you were there and know exactly what's going on in Mozzer's mind.
All me needs is Moz. I realised this when recounting how Moz pointed at me every time he sang the verse "You're gonna miss me when I'm gone" at a certain show.
And then at the Ferguson taping, he faced me (I was placed in an awkward spot which was unnatural for him to face for so long, so it must've been deliberate) during much of AYNIM. What should I make of that? But he did wave, smile, and point at me before taping as if he were pleased to see me. I guess that's why he's still not retired -- he obviously loves the bitching and moaning fans.
We don't like him, but we love him. Either way we're wrong.
And he's so sick of my moaning and complaining that he's given the mic to me at almost every show I've been to since mid-2007.
Ok, I know, he just loves to set me up to take the piss. That's fine. I'm pleased to entertain so many people and to be honoured to set Morrissey up for one of his famously witty put-downs.
Is that you on the pic? If so - why are the eyes blacked out?
