Morrissey - a likely contender

Morrissey v Joyce

Morrissey claims Joyce was never hard up
01 Dec 05 - The ongoing feud between Morrissey and former Smiths drummer Mike Joyce is showing no sign of abating.

Joyce appeared on Marc Riley's Mint show on 6 Music on Sunday night to talk about some Smith's rarities he's put up for sale on eBay.

He recounted a tale of how he sold rare records in the 90s to make ends meet, saying:

"We can laugh at it now, but at the time it was terrible."
Mike Joyce
"It was about 10,12 years ago. I was going through a bit of a bad patch financially ... It was wonderful, I loved being skint and selling everything! We can laugh at it now, but at the time it was terrible."

Morrissey has responded with a 13 point statement on  - detailing his side of the various legal wranglings between the pair over royalties.

Morrissey now says Joyce has always been well off and that now he is: "extremely wealthy."

He adds: "The point I wish to make is this: Joyce is not poor, unless, living as he does in the Cheshire green-belt, he lives beyond his means."

Morrissey has a lot of money. Joyce of course wants some more of it. Morrissey shoud have settled up at the time then they wouldn't still be arguing about this.

Jo, Evesham
Mike Joyce - think where you'd be if you'd never met Moz in the first place, full respect to Morrissey!

Wire, Newport
All I can say is go Morrissey, Joyce is just getting greedy and bitter because moz is more successful than him
