I chuckled at the bit where he said he had to lie down after 2 songs cos the guitar was too heavy. Reminds me of an interview he did years ago - 1990s, I think - where he says he got into bodybuilding for a while, and he gave it up "cos when I went back to playing my guitar, it looked like a banjo".

The green sunburst telecaster is certainly pretty unique - I've never seen anything quite like it. Wish Fender would make one us mortals can buy...

It's a beautiful guitar, not actually made by Fender but custom made in the style of a Telecaster by Roger Giffin. I didn't know it was a gift from his wife, that makes it extra special. Of course it's still in his collection.

Well Johnny certainly keeps himself busy working on his mythology/career. I guess it's better than having to wear a meat dress.

The Meat Dress concept, first worn by Morrissey's great friend Linder in 1982 at the Hacienda.
 
Tele is what they call a prefix, which was
originated in the Greek dialect.
It's got the meanin' of "far reachin' ".
Ya got Television.
Ya got Telephone.
Ya got Telecastor.
Then ya got what's called TeleTurk Steppin'.
This is when ya start out Turkey Steppin' in
one spot and then ya get to Steppin' so good,
that ya end up in another spot altogether.
