    So he's now signing albums by other artists and sells them at 300 dollars apiece at his concerts.

    I can't decide who we should be more worried about: Morrissey or the people who actually buy these.


    Also:

    Weird merch : Morrissey selling classic albums by other people that he has autographed on his merch stall - Louder Than War. Link posted by Famous when dead.

    Morrissey is signing other artists’ albums and selling them for $300 at shows - Consequence of Sound. Link posted by an anonymous person.

      All I take away from this is that Mr. Minor-League B-list Morrissey has seriously devalued albums by respected legends due to scribbling on them.

      That's how lowlife Morrissey is. He has done exactly that.

      He isn't 'pulling this off'. He is being vilified, castigated and appearing like an unscrupulous opportunist. Again.

      I never gave or intended to give an explanation. I didn’t claim it was his one and only reason for doing this. We could all have differing opinions as to why, but only he has the correct answer for why he did so.

      Pathetic money grab. Selling other artist’s signed albums for 300$ and his own at 200$. Look at what he’s become.

      An expensive ‘scribble’ that’s worth it’s weight in gold, at least $300 worth.

      And hey, you get a free record thrown in for free! maybe one that you’ve only just heard of, but after a listen it may change your life, and by doing so you may look into other records by this under appreciated artist.

      Thank Morrissey later for turning you on to it.

      Perhaps you should be clear about what you wish to convey before typing and posting it. You did offer an explanation now you explain that only Morrissey has the answer. This suggests you accept that this was Morrissey's idea and that he is responsible for it? He is therefore, based on your interpretation, responsible for this understandable backlash to such a crass action.

      No shame whatsoever how many times have we told you?
      Remember the time they tried to get a number one single on the back of the Paris attacks?

        on I'M THROWING MY ARMS AROUND PARIS (Morrissey).


        We are shocked that you have made no move this week to promote the
        above song (download/special 7-inch/special CD) to support the people
        of Paris. Any other artist would be number 1 with this song RIGHT NOW.


        Why are you doing nothing? There is no other song in modern music that
        aptly supports the people of Paris.

        Dear Boz

        Thank you for copying your email to me.

        I think we all know that this would be an appropriate and compelling gesture.

        I spoke with David Joseph today. His position is that owing to Universal having a very close connection to the events, much as they see your point, they are not intending to release any records in response to the tragic events of last Friday. They feel it is too raw for them given the death of one of their staff members and instead they are going to show support and solidarity in other ways, including concerts in Paris later this year by some of their artists.

        However, I believe that Universal would licence the song back for eg a release for proceeds to relevant charities (which I assume would be the plan). In short there may be a possibility here but it would have to be a release via a third party. Personally I think there could be a very forceful statement to be made. It will of course require M's input. Have you discussed this with him - I assume so.

        If you want me to pursue this, please let me know. Time inevitably is of the essence.

        Yours sincerely

        John

      Once again ^^
      When you know you’re winning the argument the stupid 4ck numpty’s resort to these pathetic tactics. :clap:
      Nobody on here is fooled.
      Once again I have exposed Steven as a true CrankFraud, just as I have many times in the past long before Ketchup Bum, Vegan Bellend and the likes of were shot out of their Daddy’s sack. It’s all there in the archives.

      Watching Ketamine Sun and the other sycophants surrender all semblance of logic as they try to rationalize why Morrissey would do this is truly a sight to behold. You people are beyond hope. This thing is, without a doubt, one of the most pathetic little moves he's ever made.

      He used to possess such aesthetic elegance, what the fuck happened?

      True dat.
      Like, he could sign his fans and sell them in that record shop in Camden!
      How much do you reckon you're worth, Ketamine? ;)

      All the old fans he signed before launching that business he could sell in batches on ebay.

      I think that's a brilliant idea, actually! So very avant-garde. :cool:

      "Hurry while stock lasts!"

      He could sell his mother, too, but it's hard to write on wrinkled skin; besides, she never was a fan.

      -Speaking of fan: have you, or have you not, Morrissey, a Smiths album signed by everybody in the band except you? :popcorn:

      how stupid have you gotta be not to see why he’s done it. If it’s simply a tribute to his fave artists/albums, then why not 50 quid, or 100, if money isn’t the object. He’s flogging them for 300 quid, greedy bastard. You’re thick as fuck and full of excuses.
