Originally, I wasn't going to go see Morrissey this week. He's playing four nights at the Fillmore. I mean, I was interested, but the ticket price is pretty high. Finally, I decided that I should see him. I've seen him once before, and that was a looooooong time ago, at a much bigger venue. It's Morrissey, and he's the man...so I shall forget about the price and go check out a living legend. I've just arranged to pick up a ticket tonight for tomorrow night's gig, which is the third show of the four.
I'm not sure if I have a favorite Morrissey song or album (we're talking solo stuff here), I've had only casual interest in his post Smiths material. I did like Your Arsenal quite a bit, as well as Vauxhall and I. I don't have his latest album, I'm not even sure of the title. Predictably, my favorite Smiths album is The Queen Is Dead, so shoot me. It's still a great album.
In any case, I'm gonna drop We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful here. It simply reminds me of the time I had seen him in 91, on Halloween night no less. That single had just been released, with a handful of live tracks (Suedehead, I've Changed My Plea To Guilty, Pregnant For The Last Time, and Alsatian Cousin) , but Your Arsenal had not yet been released. I don't know how it was elsewhere, but that single was generating a lot of the buzz here before the show.
