I recently interviewed Morrissey for the Daily Telegraph. My piece has been published this morning online. It'll appear in print tomorrow, Saturday June 18.

Morrissey interview: heaven knows he's (a bit) less miserable now
At 52, Morrissey is among the top draws in two major music festivals – but he doesn’t have a record deal. Michael Deacon meets the ever-outspoken singer.

I also used parts of the transcript to create these three Q&As:

Morrissey on... his musical heroes...​
Perhaps this explains his "mood" last night? Its clearly a dig, as the NFU represents the meat industry.

Morrisey urged to back Scottish fruit and veg - Farmers Guardian

15 June 2011

NFU Scotland has called on rock star Morrissey to give his backing to Scottish fruit and vegetable growers during gigs in Scotland, which kick off in Perth tonight (Wednesday, June 15).


A prominent vegetarian, Morrissey has allegedly insisted that meat be removed from the menu at the venues on the Scottish leg of his tour, which takes in Perth, Inverness, Dunoon, Dunfermilne and Hawick.

The union has written to Morrissey and his record company asking him to use this decision in a positive way as it presents an opportunity to insist all catering at the concerts be based on local or Scottish produce, which would give a ‘significant boost’ to the many...
...found little titbit about Morrissey in this months 442 magazine. There is interview with Pat Nevin in there ( ask your dad kids ) - he was first "post punk" footballer and made his name at Chelsea before going onto Everton.

This lifted verbatim from interview:

Is it true that you went around Morrissey's house and Norman whiteside was climbing over the fence?
Amazingly yes I was friends with a friend of Morrissey's and he invited us over. Norman was meant to be meeting us and it's an extremely long story but he ended up jumping into Morrissey's garden. The thing that surprised me most was that Morrissey had a gym . He's actually quite a strong guy.

I would bet this was from Moz's time in Cheshire in late 80's when both Whiteside and Nevin would have been at Everton . Whiteside (again ask your dads) used to play for Manchester United

I first met Morrissey 25 years ago at the tender age of 14 and it changed my life.

Back then there were no camera phones but I did get him to sign my 12 inch copy of The Boy with the thorn in his side (still my prized possession).

~I was lucky enough to appear in Dickie Felton's book - The Day I met Morrissey and have a chapter of my own.

Yesterday I had the great honour of meeting Morrissey again as he was rehearsing for the tour in Dundee which as you know kicks off in Perth tonight (only a few hours to go!!)

After waiting for 2 and a half hours at the stage door of the Caird Hall he arrived (after an unscheduled and accidental crossing of the Tay Bridge) by bus.

I asked him to sign my book which he did and my hubby took a snap he also shook his hand!
It was somewhat surreal as Morrissey did not speak - I guess he was saving his amazing voice to treat us all later!​
