Morrissey is making headlines for a recent interview published on his Morrissey Central website. The controversial interview saw the singer talk about racism, Hitler, and London Mayor Sadiq Khan. Morrissey also discussed The Smiths and his troubled legacy with the ‘80s band. When asked if he listens to his former band’s music, he replied “no”, adding that “it was beautiful, but it’s gone”.
The singer stressed that he is more moved by his solo records. “My pride is with ‘Low in High School‘, ‘World Peace is None of Your Business‘, ‘Years of Refusal’…” Morrissey said. “They are me, whereas The Smiths was a great but simplistic time”, he noted. The singer explained that he “cannot imagine [his] life without those solo albums”.
Morrissey also complained about the lack of recognition for his current band. “Last year I did an interview with The Times newspaper and the piece emerged with an enormous photograph of The Smiths… who weren’t even mentioned in the conversation”, he told interviewer John Riggers, “I must live with it”.
