A few weeks ago Morrissey announced he had curated a new Ramones greatest hits collection which is expected to be released later this year. Though Morrissey once called the legendary band "rubbish" in his famous 1976 letter to Melody Maker, Moz recently explained to Vegan Logic that it only took a few days before he came to understand the brilliance of the Ramones:

"I thought they were terrible on the Monday that I bought their first album, and by Tuesday I was sneaking back to re-listen, and by Wednesday I was playing the LP at midnight, and by Thursday I was shocked at their magnificence. It’s incredible how the Ramones are now so hugely popular. If they were still alive they’d be the biggest band on the planet, yet they died thinking nobody loved them."

In the same interview Morrissey also briefly discussed where it all started to go wrong with Harvest records -- they didn't like his concept for the "Istanbul" video:

"It was based on the opening scenes of “West Side Story” with the band and I actually dancing through the streets. Harvest just wouldn’t do it. It was the first snap in our relationship, mainly because they didn’t have any alternative ideas. I don’t mind objections if someone has a better idea. Ultimately the head of Harvest DID have an idea … which was “let’s get rid of Morrissey”… unfathomably silly."

Read the full interview with Morrissey over at Vegan Logic.

Meanwhile Morrissey posted a short comment about the death of Joan Rivers on True To You:

"Lately, death is insatiable. Thank God black goes with everything. When Kirk Douglas dies ... somebody, somewhere ... switch out the lights."
