Good spot by ThePRP on this one.
The site scoped out a picture that Elektra Records president Jeff Castelaz shared last week on his Instagram, I believe.
The shot shows Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha with Morrissey, who fronted The Smiths.
Now, if you’re a metalhead about my age, chances are you’re also a mild if not obsessive fan of The Smiths.
If you’re young and don’t know much about The Smiths, I’d suggest you check them out…but only if you have a high tolerance for melancholy.
The Smiths wrote amazing songs, but Morrissey was just so fucking depressing and demented sometimes. I love the man’s work with The Smiths. Imagine how much different that band would have sounded were Morrissey not an asexual?
Anyways, Castelaz shared the picture, saying he had coffee and tea with Zack and Moz.
There’s no word yet on why the meeting took place. I’m hoping the two are going to be part of some strange supergroup, or that the two will work together on something. I can’t even imagine what could come of such a pairing.
