Considering the name of Morrissey doesn't seem to show up once in the actual interview, well yeah, of COURSE it's about Morrissey. Just because they don't talk about him doesn't mean it isn't about him, right?

Bait and switch, subby.  I wanted to hear Marr curse Morrissey for the arrogant prick bad crooner he is.

That is a great one.

He was very good at Coachella. He played several Smiths songs and does a surprisingly decent Morrissey impression. I wasn't missing Moz a bit. But let's face it, if they did reunite, they'd headline the festival rather than Marr finding himself in a tent at 4pm.

Damn straight.  Saw The The when they opened for Depeche Mode and were supporting this album.  They were quite awesome.

You shut your mouth. How can you say he goes about things the wrong way?

I prefer Marr's The The material to pretty much anything the Smiths ever recorded

Here's another voice who loves that The The record.  It never ages.

Marr seems like such a nice guy in every interview I've come across.

The best Smiths tune is Oscillate Wildly, an instrumental.

Saw Johnny @ Cosmo in Vegas last week (opened for New Order). He's still awesome after all these years.

Came here to say this.  Also, The The's Dusk album is pretty damn good too.  Dog's of Lust is a great song, and an awesome video.

Here is The The in concert, with Johnny Marr on guitar.  This is part 1, you can search for the rest of the show.

I'll say it, because Morrissey was the weakest part of that otherwise badass song.

Say what you will about Morrissey the incredi-douche, Morrissey the songwriter and vocalist is a great talent.
