Madness stars still angry over Morrissey gig walkout - Daily Express

MADNESS stars GRAHAM 'SUGGS' MCPHERSON and CHRIS FOREMAN are still annoyed singer MORRISSEY walked out of their 1992 reunion shows because the incident cast a shadow over the band's comeback.

The former The Smiths frontman was invited to perform on the bill at the two-day 'Madstock!' event in London but he cut short his first set when he was pelted with bottles and coins by the crowd, and he subsequently pulled out of his second slot the following day.

In the days following the concerts, media coverage was dominated by speculation about Morrissey's cancellation and some members of Madness are still upset that the incident cast a cloud over their hotly-anticipated reunion, six years after they split.

When asked if Morrissey's walkout ruined the event, frontman McPherson tells Q magazine, "Not as much as he hoped it would!"

Guitarist Foreman adds, "It was a shame because it was a really big thing for us."

I question the timing and relevance of this "news."

Because it is not news today - Dec 2014 - and it should be placed into the "archive" section in 1992 date order.

Don't you have better things to do, or to post, than this rubbish ? Come on.

You don't like it? You're free to f*** right off. I mean, heaven forfend anything should puncture your fluffy world-view of the Moz situation. You don't like that some people disagree? Tough shit. Some people disagree.

Because the article was published two days ago and discovered by a poster yesterday? This is a no-brainer. Do you think Kevin Cummings news shouldn't be posted since he was the photographer in the 90s and not the current tour photographer? :squiffy:

He's also free to make a comment without you telling him to f*** off. Are you really going to defend someone complaining about an incident that happened 22 years ago with the oh so tried and true "Sorry if this ruins your fluffy Morrissey ideal" BS?

More mod bullshit about how there's either endless snide criticism or a "fluffy word-view". Man the f*** up, you dishonest wanker.

I never knew about this, and it behooves me how at the height of Morrissey's reign and power (1992) he decided to to a festival called "Madstock" who the only song I knew that Madness did was "Our House" and then he was pelted with bottles and coins, so where's the story? Of course he would walk off and not play the next day. Wouldn't you? Only in England.

I think the story here is that he even played this "event".

Suggs was so annoyed about '92 that he performed Suedehead on Jools Holland a year later...

I wonder if this gig marked the end of friendly relations with Cathal or if the two were, by this gig, no longer friends. Nice of Moz to get to "Your the One for Me, Fatty" in the setlist, considering it was written for Cathal in the first place.

Either way, Morrissey had a much higher tolerance for fan "interaction" in 1992.

I read your first five words AztwatCuntra.
You represent a lot of people on here, your young and you know f***-ALL about silly Steven.
Yes all those years ago he was a devious c***.

I straighten up, and my position is one of hope.
Skinny is obviously a sick man. I am so tired of his shit. He's awful.

David Tseng, how can you allow this shit to go on? Have you got any moral fibre at all? This (this and other things) is why this site is held in such low regard. If it wasn't for the steady news flow, none of us SANE people would ever dream of coming here. How can you not be embarrased by the state of things?
