Statement 16 February 2013




Statement:


I am terribly sorry that the next three shows have been moved back. The worst is for the best. I am certainly on the road to recovery, but caution and prevention demand further IV blood work lest I keel over and die before your very eyes. I apologize to an almost annoying degree for any trouble I've caused to anyone by way of travel plans and dog-sitters and ticket-outlay and re-molded hairstyles. I should be as fit as a ferret for San Diego. Please don't be too appalled if you see me out and about this week in the Hollywood area. Perversely, it's all in accordance with doctor's orders: to have myself re-integrated with the call of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd; the flash of light and the full thrust of mosh-pit sound. Illness turns the body into a complete stranger, and I'll be testing the capabilities of my strides at the most unlikely music shows this week. The will to get on with it runs strong. Even death can be used as a springboard. For those scholars who are heatedly curious, my ulcer is now under reins, even if neither asleep nor dead, but the continued cause for concern is a slightly embarrassing absence of blood – most of which the bleeding ulcer relieved me of. Anemia sets its own terms with quite obvious biological conclusions, and I have spent these last weeks under expert medical care in Los Angeles with an almost erotic dependency on various IV drips. Sitting around reading indecent books is no substitute for continuing the tour, but my progress holds great promise and Flint shall not escape quite so lightly. We are all at the mercy of biological chance, and I once again beg for your liberal tolerance. If you bump into me this week at a heavy rock show, please understand that I'm lowering myself into the cut and thrust after weeks on ice - horizontal, with sockets empty of eyes. In the midst of the abyss, I'm saved by the news that tickets for the tour continue to sell very well, and my straightjacket twitches with excited gratitude. But the patient must be patient. Our goal, now, is San Diego, by which time my blood-work shall have finally taken its course and I shall be shot from a cannon and might even be equipped with an extra eye. We just never know, do we? Being on life's danger list, I've found, actually prevents you from thinking about how you are, and there's a bread-like warmth in giving in to whatever was meant for you and whatever wasn't. The only critical mistake might be to confuse your pre-med with creativity - which is certainly worth the confusion if it renders you not fully present in your own life. Finally, I gorge myself on thanks for the many and varied messages of support that I've received over these recent four weeks. They have yanked me out of prolonged mood dips and cured a crisis of spirits. I fully realize that the word 'cancellation' in every known dictionary is followed by my own name, but no morale drops as low as my own at the mere suggestion of re-jigging shows. I sincerely ask for your pardon and your understanding. As for those of you who claim to now be officially sick to death of me - if this is really true, then why exactly are you reading this? As a matter of fact, I am even prepared to humble myself to nothing before those who carp; you see, any hospital-stay leaves us in danger of becoming unnecessarily agreeable. Life will right itself.


Whatever happens, I love you.

"Premed" may refer to the sedation he received prior to endoscopy (the scoping procedure used to look at his stomach ulcer). It's usually a mixture of intravenous Valium and Demerol, and it makes you quite loopy. My guess it that given the severity of his problem, he's probably had more than one endoscopy, so he may remember this feeling.

Pre-medication is also used prior to blood transfusions, of which I'm sure he's had a bunch. It usually involves intravenous Benadryl, which makes you drowsy.

Bottom line, Moz has been gettin' drugged up!

Thanks for the medical info, gives me a more clear vieuw on Morrissey's ulcer story.

thanks.

has anyone heard mention of when the show in Las Vegas is to be, or has nothing been re-re-scheduled except for San Diego?

Morrissey's best meanderings remind me of his early correspondence: dense with run-on thoughts, charming juxtapositions and emotional turnings-on-a-dime. The meaning has to be gradually teased out (which is a great way to write lyrics, too):

"Please don't be too appalled if you see me out and about this week in the Hollywood area. Perversely, it's all in accordance with doctor's orders: to have myself re-integrated with the call of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd; the flash of light and the full thrust of mosh-pit sound. Illness turns the body into a complete stranger, and I'll be testing the capabilities of my strides at the most unlikely music shows this week. The will to get on with it runs strong. Even death can be used as a springboard."

In other words, his doctors have prescribed a heavy dose of live Soundgarden to an anemic invalid who needs to work up his legendary live chops; Morrissey has to get his mojo back.

Well good luck to him; enforced bed rest, IV fluids, endoscopy, frequent blood work and sedation can be demoralizing, even to the most glamorous icon. Then there's thoughts of encroaching mortality: grey hair can be dealt with, but hospital gowns and IV fluids make you feel older than Methuselah. Very, very scary stuff as well for a singer: what happens to the throat happens to the man.

Rock on Morrissey. :guitar:

I need rest, but I need to go out! I can't perform on stage, but I can go to rock concerts!

War is peace! freedom is slavery! Ignorance is strength!

It's astounding how stupid he thinks we are.

Phyliss,

There is a HUUUUUGE difference between walking around at an event and performing for you for an hour and 10.
As a man Moz' age, I can assure you, after witnessing the amount of energy he has expended at every show I have ever attended,
he doesn't need to rush it. As long as he fulfills the rescheduled shows, he will have done more than can be unreasonably expected of him.

As I predicted when Las Vegas was cancelled the tour will resume in San Diego California. My source told me that once Morrissey was diagnosed with these conditions he was advised to take at least one month off. He is now committed to perform at the Six West Coast dates and hopefully will reschedule the remaining cancelled US dates in the spring.

Thank you Useless Insider for stating the obvious once again.

Moz's continued illness has made the top entertainment story on MSN.COM, via Wonderwall. Never will he be able to say the US press ignores him.

http://wonderwall.msn.com/music/ail...or-support-during-health-crisis-1735619.story

This now makes 4 no-shows in a row for SF. Good thing he double booked it this tour! To lose one show may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness.

Get well Morrissey!!

I love you!!!

Morrissey your note warmly expressed what you have been going through these last weeks. I have to
say I have been checking each day for any news - why because I love you and what you have given me. Your reciprocation to us, the audience, all individuals joined together by a common passion in
your close of the 16th brought tears to my eyes.

Your only upset because you have to rely on this site for information.

You and dozens and dozens of other people, who have the decency and discretion to not blab about it to others.
