I was reading Adam Ant’s Autobiography “Stand & Deliver” & this happened
"In London Marco introduced me to Boz Boorer, guitarist and musician, best known as a former member of rockabilly band the Polecats, and as a guitarist for Morrissey. Marco and Boz - a great musician with a photographic memory for old singles, a great quiff and lots of rockabilly clothes, even today - had been working on songs together, and I was soon working with them too. We seemed to hit it off, and along with drummer Dave Ruffey started playing old and new songs with a view to touring to promote a new album release in 1993.
Miles was still insisting on my recording a duet, though, so I suggested that Morrissey and I duet on Johnny Thunders’ “You Can’t put Your Arms Around A Memory”.
Sadly it never went further than the suggestion.”
Then I found this letter Morrissey wrote about Adam:
I guess that’s why it never went further than the suggestion. Poor Adam :( I’m sure he doesn’t even know why it never happened. He obviously liked Morrissey enough to want to do a duet with him. :( </3
It sucks & is sad it never went beyond the suggesstion because I love them both, and that would have been amazing if Adam Ant && Morrissey did a duet because they have similar singing styles - espescially in the fact they both do that yodeling thing lol.
It would have been a beautiful symphony of yodels haha
I hate when my favorite people dislike each other, especially if one likes the other and the other doesn’t. I adore Adam Ant so that was a bit rude to me especially coming from someone I also like.
But then again you have to take Morrissey’s comments with a grain of salt sometimes. Yes he says shocking/controversial things all the time but I don’t think he truly means half of them - Pretty sure that’s why he wrote “Bigmouth Strikes Again” it’s just how he is. So I’m hoping it was more of a flippant comment then an attack.
&& Adam Ant doesn’t like Russell Brand or Johnny Depp that much either and I love Russell Brand and like Johnny Depp so I guess it just happens. lol
oh well :/
