    Singer Morrissey treated for cancer

    Singer Morrissey has revealed he has undergone numerous treatments to 'scrape cancerous tissue away' and that doctors have told him to stop touring. He told El Mundo in Spain, where he's touring:

    "If I die, I die."

    Morrissey has had several health issues over the past year or so, but it's the first time he has mentioned they may be cancer related.

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    Cancer scare for ex-Smiths frontman Morrissey

    Daily Mail:

    'If I die, then I die': Morrissey reveals he has cancer and has been hospitalized
    several times in last 18 months causing him to cancel his U.S. summer tour


    Morrissey is being treated for cancer.

    The former Smiths singer has been hospitalised on several occasions over the last 18 months and he has now revealed that doctors have also been dealing with cancerous tissue in his body.

    Despite his diagnosis, the 55-year-old songwriter, whose first name is Stephen, insists he isn't afraid of death and accepts it is something that comes to us all.

    Having requested thread to be joined w/ Zweibel's earlier Morrissey cancer effort, I can only use this one to post songs -- fans should know all the Smiths' so I'll restrict myself to a pair of solo numbers; this one....

    Trudging slowly over wet sand/ Back to the bench where your clothes were stolen/ This is the coastal town that they forgot to close down/ Armageddon, come Armageddon / Come Armageddon, come....
    being -- and fairly easily being -- in my list of all-time top ten....

    Hoping Mozzer kicks the Big C. An all-time favorite whether fronting the Smiths (GREAT band; huzzah for Johnny Marr!) or solo.

    A good time, if ever, to say: Think positive Morrissey!

    "Lord knows it would be the first time."

    Everyone needs to back away now .. Morrissey is MINE!!

    Ever since this news broke I have been listening non-stop to The Smiths, read 'There is a light that never goes out' (brilliant read if anyone is interested), watched nothing but Smiths / Morrissey / Marr interviews on YouTube, then watched all the kitchen sink drama's that inspired Moz to begin with, before moving onto the Moors murders documentaries yesterday.

    I have also been in bed listless with a fever, and now speak with a manchurian accent.

    This is wonderful viewing ..

    Neither the state nor the defense team are saints, and there is usually plenty of incompetence to go around on both sides of the courtroom.
