“So maybe around 2011 or 2012, we were playing in a venue in San Francisco and the very following night Morrissey was playing at that same venue,” Black told NME. “I noticed that during soundcheck the stagehands that worked at the venue were angrily walking around stage and taking all of the gaffa tape off everywhere.
“So I go up to my tour manager and say, ‘Can you find out why they’re tearing all of the gaffa tape off the stage?’ He came back a few minutes later and goes, ‘Yeah it’s green and yellow and Morrissey refuses to go on stage if there’s anything that’s green and yellow on it, so they’re replacing all of the gaffa tape with blue gaffa tape’.”
He added: “I don’t know if that’s true or if someone was screwing with them, but that’s my Morrissey story.”
Black then went on to recall how Morrissey requested a table at Black Veil Brides’ residency at The Roxy, but left after three or four songs.
