Keir has hair & so does Morrissey.

Sadly nothing more exciting than that unless you're a Labourite & you want to lament/decry that we're stuck between a rock & an intersectional hard place. Which I do. :swear :ahhh:

Springsteen plays Morrissey on his SiriusXM radio show - April 8th

Bruce Springsteen had a 90 minute guest DJ slot on SiriusXM today, during which he paid tribute to John Prine (RIP), played a bunch of songs by people like Dylan, Roy Orbison, Bon Jovi - and also "Everyday is Like Sunday" by Morrissey. About which Springsteen said:

“Everybody’s wakin’ up these days with that feeling that it’s Groundhog Day. Every day is like the other day. And that’s like the other day. And that’s like the other day. I get up. I exercise. I exercise some more. I go downstairs. I eat breakfast. I eat breakfast again. Then I sit in front of the fire and I read a little bit. If we’re lucky, we get outside, get around the farm a little bit, Patti and I. And then we get to have dinner. And then we have some more dinner. And then we watch the news. It’s all bad. And we got to bed. And then we get up and we do it again. Looking for a little light at the end of the tunnel.”

Lots of interesting Morrissey mentions here: the career and sad early demise of Jobriath, and Morrissey's own personal link to his story. Pasted in full as it's behind a paywall.

Bowie and Bolan stole his act, and his manager thought he could be bigger than Elvis. Then why did “rock’s truest fairy” die in obscurity?

Ricky Gervais opens a live FB broadcast with The Smiths (very brief):




April 1:

Robbie Williams via an IG live broadcast (March 31) he's calling Coronaoke - he 'sings' Suedehead. Chopped out of the hour long broadcast by myself - it's not really worth the waiting to upload it all to vimeo - so just the relevant part:
