Morrissey, 1/11/2013 @ BAM (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
Morrissey

As you may remember, Morrissey was hospitalized last week for what turned out to be a bleeding ulcer, which caused cancelation of a number of dates on his current North American tour. It looks like the tour will indeed resume in Las Vegas on February 9, as per this missive from Moz himself sent to fan website True to You:

The reports of my death have been greatly understated. Once admitted to the William Beaumont Hospital at Royal Oak in Michigan, I received treatment for concussion, a bleeding ulcer, and Barrett's esophagus. The positive from all of this is that there are now no known ailments left for me to try.

I am fully determined to resume the tour on February 9 at the Chelsea Ballroom in Las Vegas. If there's an audience of any kind in attendance, I just might die with a smile on my face, after all. If I am not there, I shall probably never again be anywhere. Equally, I am determined to play Flint (Michigan) if it kills me (which, on the face of it, it almost has.)

Thank you to everyone present at both Brooklyn (New York) and Melbourne (Australia) during recent weeks for two of the best nights of what might charitably be termed my "career". My debt to you will outlive time itself.
pause at my headstone,

MORRISSEY

31 January 2013.

Glad to hear you're on the mend, Morrissey!

Barrett's esophagus isn't particularly good news though, gives him a pretty high chance of getting throat cancer at some point.

"Pause at my headstone" - heh. The guy's still got it, after all these years.

Can't wait to see the post on what Morrissey bought at Barney's last week.

BAM (nor any other place but Port Chester since the Smiths broke up) did not get That Joke's Not Funny Anymore. That's kind of a big deal, even in Mozzer's world. 'Nuff said.

The kid gave him the bleeding ulcer, hugged him and just wouldn't let go, thanks Kyle

I love MOZ, but that pic? MAN, fuckin' chum to the sharks!

Not his adopted son, there's a whole controversy raging about the kid in the mozzosphere - morrissey-solo is feuding with some blog called mozziah and another one called morrisseysworld and the kid is at the center of the feud, I kid you not, I love Morrissey but some people take the shit way too far

12:47-Those Morrissey fanatics are the worst. Just complete utter pathetic twits. Someone should just knock that kid out at a show.

I love how he's allowed to walk on the stage and everyone is too sheepish to tackle him like the other fucking nerds who run up to him.

That Bell House Show will be THE venue to hit on women with low self-esteem. They'll do anything but will probably kill themselves in the morning. Tempting, but too much paperwork.
