Morrissey is too big for music. He is an island unto himself.

Re: Morrissey Reveals He Has Cancer

I love his music, but can't stand his looney left-wing political views. He's the poster boy for "shut up and sing".

Still....I wish him well.

Re: Morrissey Reveals He Has Cancer

If we're going to go through Morrissey's lyrics for death and despair references, this is going to be the longest thread of the year.

Re: Morrissey Reveals He Has Cancer

I'm taking this news with a grain of salt. Morrissey is notorious for being dramatic, and dropping everything (like tours) at the first sniffle. The facts, so far, are that he divulged to a Spanish newspaper (wha?) that he has had "cancerous tissues"(eh?) scraped(uh?) four times. Huh? He doesn't say what kind of cancer? Why not? Could be something very minor.

I wish him the best, of course, but this scanty amount of info is too odd to freak about.

Re: Morrissey Reveals He Has Cancer

I sure hope his health issues don't lead Morrisey to turn to downbeat themes for his music. Here's hoping he keeps his characteristic sunny optimism.

Well ask him, "why", and he'll spit in your eye!

Put a spoiler on that. It's early in the morning, goddamn it.

Didn't know Morissey was a Fright Night fan. Vampires don't fall in line with his Meat is Murder philosophy.

Sorry if it's disrespectful, but what happened to Alanis is horrifying.
