Peter Hook: "Morrissey's a Twat"
Perhaps in an effort to divert attention away from his autograph fraud, former New Order and Joy Division bassist Peter Hook has lashed out against ex-Smiths front-man and celebrated solo artist Morrissey.

In a public Q&A on Saturday (October 10) in Bristol, England, Hook explained his disdain for the Smiths. "There's no way I could have liked the Smiths, as they were our competition," he said. "Morrissey's a twat anyway! He makes Mark E. Smith look popular! He really does."

Hook went on to dig into Moz's approach to legal issues, saying, "What I do love about Mozzer, though, is that any time anyone has any legal problem with him, the only person you can speak to about [it] is his mother! That's true. So if you have a problem you have to deal with Morrissey's mother. And the first thing she says is, 'Our Steven wouldn't do that!'"
