I used to like the music, but in his interviews he became progressively more unpleasant and bitter in his views. I'm sure this Cliff Richard thing is some ironic stunt in the same way he tried to get down with National Front skinheads in the nineties until they bottled him off the stage.
Someone did say Morrissey in the flesh isn't very pleasant and has been rude to fans.
I dont get the appeal of Morrissey. He may have been a great counter-culture character of the 80's, but he just comes accross as a TOSSER to me. I dont get the hero worship??
Maybe fans are dining on past glories??
