I had the opportunity to see Morrissey, ex lead singer of The Smiths for the first time last week and I was quite impressed.
Morrissey’s dulcet tones have stood the test of time, his voice sounds the same as his Smiths days. Still unusually whiney but weirdly pleasing to the ear! He has a unique sound that is definitely his own. For a man who has always shunned the limelight Morrissey has a certain stage presence and a full house of 22,000 Morrissey fans lapped up his performance.
It’s fair to say that the majority of his songs are not main stream and definitely not commercial but it was good to see him mixing in some of his old Smiths songs with the new.
I had a good night being entertained as only Morrissey can. An Englishman with a twist!
