Morrissey: Smiths e Beatles


Dalla Francia, dove è in studio per registrare il suo nuovo e già annunciato album (leggi), Morrissey durante un’intervista a Billboard torna a parlare degli Smiths e di quella reunion che farebbe felici molti… o no? I don’t know a single person who wants a Smiths reunion! There aren’t any bands I like to see again because your memory of them is how they were in their prime or at their best or at their most desperate, and you look to them to be someone that they no longer are”. E sui Beatles recentemente tributati in USA: I thought four of their songs were magnificent, and if a band can give you four magnificent songs then that’s good enough for me. But was I ever influenced by the Beatles? No”. Sul nuovo disco: “I’m amused by modern pop artists who can only sing about sex… as if nothing else mattered on the planet”.
