Morrissey-solo 20 years old today (Feb. 12, 2017)

Today marks 20 years since Morrissey-solo was launched on February 12, 1997. It's been a thrill to work on this site that still consistently averages over 100,000 unique visitors / month. This is a testament to the legacy and interest that Morrissey continually generates and countless small and large contributions from those touched by the music. Thank you to those who have kept it going.

Although it's been through several major redesigns, growing along with the internet itself, in many ways the site is the same as it was when it started - independent and self-supported, open and self-correcting. If you just started visiting or have been for many years, I hope you have enjoyed the freedom that the site allows despite the occasional offense and peril that may have ensued.

20 years to be doing anything I think is a great accomplishment and shows it's here for the long term. I hope you find a project like this to work on that you feel as passionate about.

Congrats David. I remember when I first got the internet in 97, I registered on this site. I forgot my user name back then. Anyway I posted my review of the 1997 Raleigh, NC show. I was so amazed that you could instantly post a review back then. I also sent my review to Julia that she published in the next edition of True To You. I still have that copy.
My review isn't in this snap shot, but here was a glimpse of Moz-solo in 1997..

Congratulations M-solo and many many thanks to David for all his patience and hard work.

I can't remember exactly when I first started visiting but I do remember being overseas with the army in 2002 and using some of my limited internet access to look over the site as often as possible. I was ( and remain ) very keen !

I've been visiting daily since the early days, even though I only registered in 2009.
People often forget that for a very long time this was the ONLY place where one could get regular updates in relation to anything Moz.

Many thanks for all the hard work over the years.

'We are here to stay'.

still is.

If my workplace did a check on the most visited website at the library (where I work), Morrissey Solo would be tops. I visit it multiple times daily. Thank you. Been a wild ride, eh Davit? Congrats.

Been coming here faithfully since the Maladjusted Tour - I think that''s close to the beginning.

Congrats, and thanks, to David on running the site for two decades - major accomplishment in internet terms.

A lot of other Moz resources have come and gone...

Thanks for all that this site has provided me over these years. Deeply appreciative. Few web sites get nearly a daily check in from me and this endeavour of yours is one.

Thanks again David for making it possible. ~Frost

Congratulations David !!!

This is by far the best and most informative Morrissey site despite some of the idiots who post on here .

It was a real lifeline back in the "wilderness" years for Morrissey fans and I would even say for Morrissey himself and continues to be my first stop for all things Morrissey related .

This site was so very, very good in its time, and for that, I thank you. There can't be many Moz fans who haven't at some stage visited these pages. Such a shame that it all went pear shaped and ended up as a hateful online crèche. It's also a shame, and a little ironic, that David & his Commander in Chief, Uncle Skinny, have ended up: A) no longer liking Morrissey's solo work, B) no longer attending live shows and C) looking for any opportunity to bad mouth him or attack him. There is NO D).

You're gonna miss him when he's gone.

Well done again for the years between 1997 and 2010 - they really were a light, and although the light may not have gone out, it is certainly very dark in here these days.
