You have to remember you're dealing with the British press. This has been reported here before with much discussion, I think the relevant line here is "according to reports" they're covering there backs here in case Morrissey's camp decide to gett stroppy legally, they can throw there hand in and say it was reported to them that way, they don' t know for sure. You have to read between the lines if something is reported that sounds unusual or unlikely,with anything that may be construed as a possible get out clause included, then the story is bullshit.
DUMB QUESTION OF THE DAY....
What does one wear to a Morrissey concert if it is my first experience...ie TShirt... and please no smart ass answers - I take fashion seriously..
Yes. And sturdy shoes. But if you don't have a seat or somewhere to put a coat, just wear a tshirt in. It gets sooooo hot.
