    Morrissey offered award -
    11 July 2015

    Trinity College Dublin has offered Morrissey an "outstanding contribution to music award" (his first ever such award) which stands as the University Philosophical Society's Gold Medal of Honorary Patronage.
    Morrissey has commented: "My initial reaction is to feel undeserving ... my contribution to music being such that no record label on the planet has either the nerve or the imagination to sign me!"
    The University Philosophical Society has recorded the presence of many remarkable members including Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker and Samuel Beckett. Other past recipients of the Gold Medal in their respective fields include Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel.

      Well deserved. I hope he accepts it. :) :)

      "Offered"? Meaning that he is not accepting? Strange phrasing, and the typical cringeworthy, unnecessary quote about not having a label.

      There was just no need for that. His own hubris shoehorned in.

      A negative comment by Skinny. What a surprise. As predictable as Moz, mentioning his label situation again. When anyone's hubris has earned the right to kick in, then it's Moz'. And it has always been there. Without a bit of hubris Moz would've never got a foot in anywhere. We should be glad about it. Celebrate the hubris.

      Moz: it is 2015. Times have changed. You. Do. Not. Need. A. Label.

      If you need a label that badly, write one yourself, peel it off and stick it on.

      You can self release. Use True To You. Digitally release it. Adapt.

      Times have changed.

      Since when does Morrissey have to worry about what's needed?

      I have a circle of five friends from Israel. When they heard the news about Moz playing in Israel they were so touched by it even though they aren't fans of him. They were so glad that there was at least someone who didn't take away some joy from people's lifes (which is odd to say about Moz). Their joy was heartwarming to observe. They assured me that the Israeli people would be so grateful and that gratitude would fully show at the concert. And what can I say, they did show it big time. The concert was great. I don't know if I've ever heard the phrase "Thank you so much for coming" so many times in my life.

      Ryan, when he wants a label then let him. Who are we to judge him on that? It's his "career". HE has to feel good about it, noone else. Besides that, do you really believe that at the grand old age of 56 and after the stress and struggle of recent years, he really has enough energy left in him to do it alone? I don't think that, to be honest.

      When will his outstanding contribution to whining arrive. :rofl: all kidding aside its about damn time this happened to him. I can't think of someone more deserving

      But still no recognition from Manchester. Maybe Dublin is more important to him at this point in time anyway.

      Equally, there's no need for the usual snide remarks shoehorned in courtesy of the usual suspects. If he's going to mention a lack of label at any time, it makes far more sense to do so when being offered any such honour - in order to highlight the disparity.

      This story is beautiful. I don't know so much about the Palestine and Israel conflict but I despise when artist refuse to play in Israel. Music should know no boundaries. People in the audience can have a vast array of opinions. Artist denouncing complete countries is a sham and sweeps underservingly people in a box. In the end is about the artist and audience coming together and showing how and reciving the music that has affected them so much. Appreciation in a complete consensus.

      I hope your friends enjoyed the concert greatly

      Skinny was wrong anyway, it's not hubris, it's the usual self-deprecation. You wonder why the likes of Skinny bother modding this site given their evident opposition to and mischaracterisation of Morrissey's every word and deed. Why didn't Tseng and Co take over PJLM, then they could have lived in a past that suited them for eternity, untroubled by any of Morrissey's recent actvity.

      Sometimes I think it would be more appropriate if Skinny would start a fansite about Johnny Marr because it is obvious that he admires Johnny far more than Moz. Of course it would have to be an open discussion forum just like morrissey-solo because all the other Johnny Marr fansites have one capitol mistake ... they are sycophantic. A word which is constantly used to attack True-To-You but these sites are, apart from the fact that they are better made of course, equally guilty in that regard. But such an open forum won't exist for Marr because ... well, you can do that to Morrissey but not to that TOP BLOKE Johnny Marr.
