Quoteworthy: Morrissey says The Smiths were offered “100% vegetarian event” by Coachella to reunite

on October 01, 2012, 5:55pm
…interestingly the agents for Coachella offered a 100-per-cent vegetarian event for the following year if I would agree to headline with Johnny Marr as the Smiths. Fascinatingly they made it clear that they would ‘not require’ the Smiths’ bass player or drummer … which I thought certainly said something.”

When asked about the perils of barbecue stench at festivals, acclaimed vegetarian-songwriter Morrissey pointed Australia’s Herald Sun to an alternate universe where Coachella only served veggies and The Smiths played one hell of a reunion show.

Moz also discussed at great lengths his disgust with the Royal Family and how Russell Brand might not make good movies but one very swell friend.

Update: So it seems rumors are back afloat of another Smiths reunion, this one involving far less vegetables and more or less a coven of ghostly sources. According to Holy Moly, The Smiths reunion is a “done deal,” the “dates are booked,” and “Glastonbury is one of four dates, presumably the Saturday on the Pyramid stage.” Though, even they admit their sources are rather conflicting, specifically with regards as to who is reuniting, adding: “One report says it’s all four. Another says it’s only three.” Either way, y’all havin’ a good laugh?

Marr’s Facebook statement was from back in April, it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with these new rumors…
