    No doubt if he released an album about how his woman left him and how his dog died you'd be all over it.

    Doubt it somehow.While I am more of a blues man,I do like a bit of soul (or even decent pop).

    You sound like a modern music mogul. Black should be black and white should be white.

    Its one of the great crimes in the art world. Music helped break down barriers and unite people. Starting in the 50's then on into the 60's and 70's. Now of course its more controlled than ever and we are back with people in the correct pigeon hole.

    Hey.I also like country and western music too.That's one thing I could always agree with Rusty on.Remember a black musician in some book I was reading, describing C and W as "White people's blues".That sounds about right to me.

    And yet on a Donald Trump post you made No 757, you wrote

    "You should check out a independent journalist called Abby Martin. Very smart, honest and attractive women."

    Why could not you put an Independent journalist, rather than say she is smart, honest and Attractive, that seems to be so condescending, did you employ firemen/women only on that score

    I'm sure you will turn it around, I am a left winger to suit your style

    There is no such thing, they are called Firefighters. I guess you need to update your little PC book.

    I described her to ASS because he has mentioned on here whether he is attracted or not to certain woman in politics.

    In the meantime why don't you look at what Abby Martin has to say about the world and comment on that. Rather than some lame attempt to troll me about sexism.

    Guys, please stop. This thread is about Morrissey/The Smiths.

    No need to discuss anything related to Donald Trump, firefighters, or Abby Martin.

    Thanks.

    always been a big fan of the smith's - pretty much have all their stuff.
    won't be stopping listening (when the mood takes me) anytime soon.
    oh, and their not the best band in the world.
    why bother making this a confrontational post in the first place MK?
    I'm not left leaning, am I allowed a opinion?

    Jesus, why so serious? Lighten up ffs. This site is getting boring if every post & poster is defined by their politics.

    Morrissey is a great lyricist. The Smiths were mostly fab.

    A slight dilemma when his lyrics echo some of the more intolerant and divisive stances he chooses to share with the media.

    Not so much of a dilemma when it's hard to even bother listening what he's up to these days.

    But no dilemma when listening to the golden era from '83-'86 inclusive.

    He was fantastic then - as was Johnny Marr.
