I had requested my byline be removed, but not exactly for the reasons the Morrissey camp are spinning... The piece was very critical and NME decided to tone it down, something I didn't agree with. They showed me several rewritten versions, some of which were very soft on Morrissey, one that was quite critical. None had any of my points or arguments in them and none of them were written in my voice... For these reasons, the byline was removed.
