Morrissey in Seattle

Last Sunday I went to the Paramount to see Morrissey perform here in Seattle. It was a good show, and I’m glad I went.

But, without a doubt, it made me exceedingly aware that despite owning 6 (yes, six… I just counted) Morrissey CDs, I’ve evidently never fully made the transition from The Smiths. I was disappointed to only recognize a handful of the songs he played (I’m guessing most were from his newest CD, which I do not own). And I was most disappointed that 1/2 way through “The Boy with the Thorn in His Side”, he aborted the song and made (what appeared to be… it was quite muffled) some snide comment about The Smiths or Johnny Marr or something like that. Seems like it’s time to let go of the ancient disagreements…

Whatever. He’s a great talent and I can’t stay away from his wonderful music. But I can totally believe the nasty stuff that’s been written about his attitude over the years.
