At one time (circa 1992-1995), Bowie and Morrissey were friends. Post-1995, Bowie and Morrissey were no longer friends. What happened? Apparently, among the 228 Morrissey cancelled tour dates, Morrissey dropped out of the David Bowie's The Outside Tour, forcing him to find an opener replacement at the last minute.
In an interview with the Times Magazine (Saturday, Nov. 6, 1999), Morrissey said he left the tour due to pressure: ""I have never spoken about this up until now because, in spite of everything, I do respect David [Bowie]. I simply have to play Star Man or Drive-in Saturday and I will forgive him for anything. But I left that tour because he put me under a lot of pressure, and I found it too exhausting."
Last year, when Morrissey wanted to use a photo of David Bowie and Morrissey together for his re-mastered/reissued of "The Last of the Famous International Playboys" single, Bowie did not grant permission... and in typical Morrissey fashion, he also added that "Bowie has no legal rights to the photograph."
