Moz Vs Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame
Morrissey has never been one to shy away from making controversial statement, and he offered up a (meat-free) platter of them in a recent interview with FastLouder.
Moz talked about Brexit and the American election. Later in the interview, Morrissey was asked about his legacy and immediately brought up the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’, for which he’s never been nominated. He blamed this on the fact that voters fail to distinguish his solo career from his time with The Smiths, and said that he’s more deserving of other solo artists such as fellow Brit PJ Harvey.
“I’ve taken the position of serious analyst on this issue for quite some years and I now think that The Smiths are listed as, for example, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees, because people generally think that The Smiths also covers Morrissey – which it doesn’t. Consequently we have PJ Harvey as a Hall Of Fame nominee yet it can’t be argued that she has ever meant more than Morrissey in the USA, and needless to say I have never been a nominee”.
