Σαν σήμερα, 22 Μαΐου 1959 γεννήθηκε στο Davyhulme, Urmston του Ηνωμένου Βασιλείου, ο Steven Patrick Morrissey, μια από τις σημαντικότερες προσωπικότητες της γενιάς του, τόσο για την τεσσάρων δεκαετιών καλλιτεχνική του παρουσία, με Smiths και έπειτα σόλο, όσο και για τη μοναδικά θαρραλέα στάση σε πολιτικά και κοινωνικά ζητήματα. Αυτή, που του έχει εξασφαλίσει χαρακτηρισμούς όπως “ρατσιστής”, “ακροδεξιός” κλπ. απ΄τους συνήθεις politically correct κύκλους.

O Morrissey είναι απ’ τους ελάχιστους ανθρώπους στη σημερινή show business [τέτοια “αναγνωρισιμότητας” τουλάχιστον] για τους οποίους αισθάνομαι αγάπη και εκτίμηση.

Έφτιαξα ένα podcast με τραγούδια από ολόκληρη την καριέρα του.



On this date May 22, 1959 in Davyhulme, Urmston, United Kingdom, Steven Patrick Morrissey was born, one of the most important public figures of his generation. Not only for his four decades long artistic presence, first with the Smiths and then solo, but also for his uniquely courageous attitude towards political and social issues. This has led to him being characterised as “racist”, “far-right” etc. by the usual ignorant politically correct circles.

Morrissey is one of the very few people in today’s show business for whom I feel love and deep appreciation.

I made a podcast with songs from the Smiths’ and Morrissey’s albums.
