Top quotes from the Larry King Now: Morrissey Interview

“We were very young, we didn’t know what we were doing and we didn’t like each other that much, so it was nice when it was finished.” - On whether he misses being with ‘The Smiths’

“So that the name couldn’t be attached to any kind of music, in fact, it could be attached to any kind of music but it couldn’t be pigeonholed, so it could mean anything.” – On why they named the band ‘The Smiths’

“I think about everything too much… I have this chattering voice, this chattering mind, and it just doesn’t stop.And nothing can make it stop.”

“I’m a sensitive little thing, and I’m very interested in poetry and the poetic side of life, and so obviously it’s hard in modern life because there’s no poetry in modern life. There’s nothing very nice about modern life.It’s very difficult, so yes, I feel pangs very easily.”
