        that he made a point of not reading morrissey’s book because didn’t want own book to be a reaction. and that it would have been had he read it because come to realise that morrissey always jealous of him, didn’t want him to do well, hated when he got any critical acclaim, stuff like that. morrissey didn’t sound like a very nice fellow.

    Who is this ‘Morrissey’ you speak of..?
    – Is this his first day on the internet?

    He sounds confused. That sells records when you aren’t old and bitter, AND confused.

    Feck off Morrisey, you Empower of Apathy, you Emperor of Pithy, you has-been.
    I never liked you since that NME interview where you said ‘all Reggae is vile.’

    Get back into your eco-tent.

    After ‘Get back into your eco-t’ I meant to say ‘Be content’.

    The subtext is not im interests to divulge.

    Johnny Marr was The Smiths.
    Rudolf the red-bottomed rainman was a conduit.

    History, Baby…
    The Smiths were stunning, until that cry-baby came in and wrecked it all.

    He hates his Irish ancestry.
    I’ll stop now.

          Seriously, who brings a massive Union Jack to a Madness concert?

          UKIP will find a chorus to chant on his next album.
          Trust me.

            first ever album I bought was a madness album

            copied suggs in being an arsenal fan

            he asked me for change for the phone once

            (I started off as a Chelsea fan bit they were in the old second division. all my mates were Liverpool or Man Utd fans so I couldn’t do that to myself. I took what I reckoned was the best London team. and I loved Stapleton – then he fupped off to Utd)

        I think it was the late George Byrne who first noted that more members of The Smiths qualified to play for Ireland than members of U2.

            That was a jasper carrott joke, not a lennon quote. And Ringo is a great drummer. He was asked what it was like on the Sgt pepper album and he couldn’t remember as he was spending his time playing chess with mal Evans. He literally went in, recorded his couple of takes and was done for the week while the lads arsed around with the mellotron.

    Superb sentiments.
