The Moz knows


Cheeky monkey

“Are you feeling heartbroken ’cause you’ll never be mistaken for a good looking man about town?”

Oh, Morrissey. How does one manage to be so simultaneously droll and sympathetic? How can I master this skill that you have in spades? For all of Steven Patrick Morrissey’s flaws, his sense of humor in his work has always been bitingly, lovingly unsinkable. So after his highly publicized onstage collapse, the singer cracked wise with the audience at his return concert in London and informed them how, “The doctor said I shouldn’t smile. I told him, ‘I don’t.'”

Morrissey is currently on the road to promote his full-length from earlier this year, Years of Refusal, as well as a collection of B-sides from his last three albums entitled Swords. There’s even a live David Bowie cover tossed in. Unlike Bowie’s ill-fated Ziggy Stardust, here’s wishing one of pop music’s greatest fussbudgets a continued productive career, good health for the rest of the tour, et cetera, et cetera.

Morrissey will play at the Roseland on Monday, November 30.

    The Moz knows it’s time to leave when someone lobs a red cup at that majestic coiffure.

      Isn’t that awful? You overcome health and album setbacks only to be a frat victim. I completely understand why he’s miserable now.
