'Only he and I know that something like a fight or a difference in lifestyles or court cases or who said what in the press about who, or what fans might say, is pretty small change compared to the connection we have. It’s very deep. In short, there’s a very big part of him that I understand. And he knows it.'

'There was a sense that we’d really found each other. We really admired each other and wanted to spend every minute of the day with each other.'
– Johnny Marr, about meeting Morrissey.
Two sweet (and rather slashy) little Johnny quotes from a Norweigan Smiths documentary. Aww.
“No reunion!” I keep telling them, but the knitting needles will not be denied.
“After the first meeting [with Morrissey] we really couldn’t get together often enough” says Marr. “It was a few times a week. We got a hell of a lot done in that first month”. They were, Marr admits, in awe of one another’s potential. “He and I almost had this unspoken relationship where we were both able to be ourselves but we both knew how important we were to each other. What shouldn’t be forgotten is that we really, really liked each other. It wasn’t some business arrangement or relationship of convenience. There was intrigue and understanding because as different as we were, the thing that was paramount inside each of us was pop records and that absolute promise of escape. And he understood that without us ever having to talk about it”. (Simon Goddard)

Talk about inappropriate Birthday gifts, Moz! xD
Based on a real story where Johnny (jokingly?) asked the bookstore workers (that sold J.Rogan’s ‘crap’ book), for the Morrissey cutout they had there. The reason remains unknown. Crikey.
This one is dedicated to Aly and Charlotte , they’ll know why eheheheh ;)
