David Bowie Fueds With Morrisey?
David Bowie and former Smiths front man Morrisey are feuding over the proposed artwork for a Morrisey album reissue. Morrisey's 1991 album "Kill Uncle" and 1989 single "The Last Of The Famous International Playboys" are set to be re-released on April 8th. However, EMI has reportedly changed the artwork for the reissue after objections from Bowie. The reissue was originally intended to feature a previously unreleased photograph of David Bowie and Morrisey taken by Linder Sterling in New York. A statement on True To You, the official Morrisey fan site, reads as follows: "David Bowie has ordered EMI UK not to run the proposed artwork for Morrissey's April 8th issue of the re-mastered The Last of the Famous International Playboys single and CD. The sleeve featured a previously unseen private photograph of Bowie and Morrissey taken by Linder Sterling in New York in 1992. Although Bowie has no legal rights to the photograph, most of his back catalogue is presently licensed to EMI." Think that Morrisey should be allowed to use the photo, or think that Bowie should have rights to the distribution of his own image? Let us know in the comments.
