His autobiography looks like a hilarious character study in pretension.

don't sleep on the rhythm section, Mike Joyce is a pretty rad punk drummer

that would probably be fun

but I have to say Marr's solo stuff is pretty ****ing snoozy most the time, his style doesn't lend well to being a main attraction

that's actually what's great about it, and I miss rock bands that are set-ups for a unique vocalist...not a lot of those kinds of groups anymore

it truly is
also, the bit about his young years can be genuinely moving but when he gets to the later years large pieces of it are boring self-indulgence

I'm not emotionally invested in the popularity of The Smiths

it's just a fact that they remain incredibly relevant all across the world

nobody doubts a Smiths reunion would sell out arenas

This reads like ad copy. If The Smiths booked an arena in LA I suspect they would be sorely disappointed at the ticket sales.

Ja COVID really hurt ticket sales for big events like that.

HaHa, that's true, although the "sucks" thread about Pink Floyd was about twice as long. Can we make the lazy inference, therefore, that P Floyd suck twice as much as EC ?

As for Morrissey, I don't think I've ever heard him, so from me, he gets a clear pass: doesn't suck at all.
