YABU read a book called The wrong boy.

shock Yabvvvvvu!! I am shocked. I love Morrissey and indeed The Smiths, and I am a young 'un.

Morrissey Morrissey Morrissey.
Morrissey Morrissey Morrisseeeey.
Morrissey Morrissey Morrissey.
Morrissey.
Morrissey.

(Now you know).

Morrisey is an eejit, always has been. But The Smiths, with jonny Barr on guitar were excellent. He s easily the best guitarist ever.

jimjams I would tell you my fave band, but as I name changed it would out me.
I like all kinds of music.

JenaiMathis Wed 12-Dec-12 22:51:26

Johnny Marr is indeed utterly, utterly brilliant.

RedTinsel Wed 12-Dec-12 22:52:28

This Charming Man is work of genius.

The Wanted Pah!

YABU OP, mind you he has always been a total tool so you haven't missed much. Are you about 12?

:intrigued: smile

FunnysFuckingFreezing Wed 12-Dec-12 22:53:38

oh and the Smith's music was always self satisfied bollocks too.

kittyandthegoldenfontanelles Wed 12-Dec-12 22:54:40

The Smiths were seminal.

Morrissey is a Twatty Arbuckle

Neds weren't from Manchester they were from stourbridge.

FunnysFuckingFreezing Wed 12-Dec-12 22:57:56

The Smiths were crap. I was 16 when they surfaced and hated them. Nambypamby mother fuckers grin

I was far more hard core innit

yy: The Smiths will always be important and Morrissey will always be a twat.

I am not going to tell you my age.....
I am old ok,
I have a feeling that I just missed all this crap music.
I must have been of listening to something else

RedTinsel Wed 12-Dec-12 23:01:59

Well if you've never heard of them, how do you know they were crap? You have a whole thread full telling you how influential and utterly brilliant The Smiths are.

Ds2 looks like Johnny Marr. He is also the biggest dude going. He's only four!

Oldandcobwebby Wed 12-Dec-12 23:05:27

YABVU. Morrissey has given me the will to live since 1983, when I first heard him on the John Peel show.

All other singers are an irrelevance.

His concerts are a religious experience - his fans literally worship him.

threesocksfullofchocs Wed 12-Dec-12 23:05:53

I havn't called them crap. just can't get why this man's opinion counts for anything.

VivaLeBeaver Wed 12-Dec-12 23:09:38

Threesocks, you seem to have missed a lot of bands and music.

threesocksfullofchocs Wed 12-Dec-12 23:11:02

maybe....
but I have a feeling I didn't miss a lot.
am wondering where I was, when they were all famous though<<scratches head>>>

kittyandthegoldenfontanelles Wed 12-Dec-12 23:14:03

His opinion counts no more than yours or mine.

His music, or actually that of The Smiths, was influential.

EllenParsons Wed 12-Dec-12 23:19:12

YAbvu and I also think its a bit off that you're calling the smiths crap when you don't even know their music or who morrissey is!! I know you just said you didn't say they were cap but having just read the thread, you clearly did say that a couple of times. Bit embarrassing having such a massive gap in your general knowledge (which knowledge of very very well known music is) tbh

EllenParsons Wed 12-Dec-12 23:19:59

Also unsure why you are being smug about not knowing!

threesocksfullofchocs Wed 12-Dec-12 23:25:30

I apologise I did put crap
so I put my hands up to that, reading back I missed it blush.
I do like a fred like this though as it does show how we see the same person so differently.
oh and love the thought that someone said

"You are obviously under the age of 25. Bugger off "

MrsKeithRichards Wed 12-Dec-12 23:27:52

Ellen a lot of people go through life not knowing anything about music. It doesn't make them stupid.
