イギリス、マンチェスターで結成されたThe Smiths のボーカルであり、寓話的歌詞で有名なモリッシーが2013.10.17 に自伝を発表しました。

しかも、ペンギンブックスの classics 部門 からの刊行とのことで、賛否両論が巻き起こっているというニュースです。 アルバム "The Queen is Dead" の歌詞をガン読みしている私個人としては、もちろん「支持」に一票入れたいと思います(自伝はまだ読んでいないので内容がどうかはわかりません)。

Autobiography covers Morrissey’s life from his birth until the present day.

Steven Patrick Morrissey was born in Manchester on May 22nd 1959. Singer-songwriter and co-founder of the Smiths (1982-1987), Morrissey has been a solo artist for twenty-six years, during which time he has had three number 1 albums in England in three different decades.

Achieving eleven Top 10 albums (plus nine with the Smiths), his songs have been recorded by David Bowie, Nancy Sinatra, Marianne Faithfull, Chrissie Hynde, Thelma Houston, My Chemical Romance and Christy Moore, amongst others.

An animal protectionist, in 2006 Morrissey was voted the second greatest living British icon by viewers of the BBC, losing out to Sir David Attenborough. In 2007 Morrissey was voted the greatest northern male, past or present, in a nationwide newspaper poll. In 2012, Morrissey was awarded the Keys to the City of Tel-Aviv.

It has been said ‘Most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status that Morrissey has reached in his lifetime.’
