Morrissey Steals Fan’s Artwork For A Tour T-Shirt … Again

Back in 1992, Morrissey’s camp reached out to NME photographer Derek Ridgers about using his photo of skinheads as part of a montage during the Smiths singer’s stage show for an upcoming French gig.

Q&A: Noel Gallagher On Kanye, Beck, Beyoncé, Moz, Jack White, Black Keys, & More

Back when I was first becoming an obsessive music fan, Oasis were big for me. I loved everything: the classic albums, of course, but also the mid-period stuff most people dismiss. As I got older, those last two very underrated albums were special to me, too. I sought out all sorts of Oasis minutiae, from… More »

Guess Who Hates The Brit Awards. (Hint: Rhymes With Borrissey)

Remember when Kanye West said all that stuff about the Grammys yesterday? No? You might have missed it. I’ll recap: Kanye shared some choice words and strong opinions about the Grammys. In an interesting bit of “coincidence,” today, Morrissey offered a 1300-word diatribe of his own about music award shows — specifically “the British Phonographic… More »

Morrissey Cancels Iceland Show Because Venue Serves Meat

Morrissey doesn’t exactly need excuses to cancel shows, but this time, he has one. The man has long insisted that any venue he plays be vegetarian, at least for the night, which led to some controversy when he played the Staples Center in L.A. in 2013. He was planning a show at Reykjavik, Iceland’s Harpa… More »

Good One, Moz: Morrissey Refuses Fan’s Autograph Request Because “He Has Ebola”

Morrissey “Felt Delight” Upon Seeing Bullfighter Gored

In Morrissey’s 2014 song “The Bullfighter Dies,” a bullfighter dies: killed in the arena by a bull, naturally. And the crowd is delighted. Sings Moz: “Hooray! Hooray! The bullfighter dies! And nobody cries.” (If you want to lose your appetite for a week, watch this fan-made video for the song, in which the realities of… More »

Morrissey’s About To Record Another Album

If you missed it, the saga of Morrissey’s 2014 album World Peace Is None Of Your Business goes something like this: Harvest Records released the LP in July.

Morrissey Storms Offstage In Poland After Fan’s Offensive Comment

Morrissey cancels a lot of tour dates, and sometimes he doesn’t drop the hammer until the show is already in progress. That was the situation in Poland last night, anyway. The Daily Mail reports that Moz was 25 minutes into a show at Warsaw’s Klub Stodola when he stromed offstage. A spokesperson for Live Nation,… More »

Morrissey Cancels Rescheduled Swiss Show

That crazy cat Morrissey is always cancelin’ shows! At this rate Moz is almost as likely to pull the plug on concerts as he is to issue eloquently maudlin quips about the royal family and/or dourly condemn testing products on animals. He’s a concert-canceling machine! He even calls off shows that were already rescheduled from… More »

Morrissey Cancels More European Shows

Morrissey has cancelled two more shows on his European tour. The tour started out well enough, but Moz had to cancel his concert in Lyon last Friday after “members of the touring party” came down with the flu.

Morrissey Cancels Another Show

Well, that didn’t take long. We just heard tell of Morrissey’s successfully completed jaunt through Portugal, Spain, and Italy, but it seems the world’s most ill-tempered (and sometimes just ill) rock star is back to his gig-canceling ways. A post on Morrissey fan site True To You tells us, “The concert at Lyon Le Radiant… More »
