Morrisey Reveals he has Cancer

He went on to say he feels he’s reached an age when he “should no longer be making music”.

I’ve been listening to the smiths since I was 13 years old. I think it was a refreshing change for my parents to hear over some more hard core alternative or punk bands I liked to play.  I even wore my Meat is Murder T shirt proudly to school and was preaching Veganism by 14 to the masses (ok really just my school mates not the general public!) Speaking of which I love that band too (General Public)

But I digress.

I didn’t stay Vegan from 13 on and have switched since then from Vegan to not Vegan to Vegetarian to Vegan etc.  It’s been quite a few years ; )

“If I Die, I Die”

I was truly crushed to learn today that Morrissey does indeed have cancer and I’m rooting for him to make it. in todays article about the former Smiths band front man he says:

If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t. Right now I feel good. I am aware that in some of my recent photos I look somewhat unhealthy, but that’s what illness can do. I’m not going to worry about that, I’ll rest when I’m dead.”

He went on to say he feels he’s reached an age when he “should no longer be making music”.

“Many composers of classical music died at age 34. And I’m still here, and nobody knows what to do with me.

I would break my heart to see him go and I hope he can overcome this.  His music still brings me much joy and is one I’ll always keep on my playlist.

I hope (if he does any more shows) that I can get to a live show, but far more important, I just hope he is able to pull through this. If anyone can I know it’s Morrissey.
