Morrissey Laughs Off Smiths Reunion
"Well, I'm expected to see Easter," Moz quipped to Billboard when queried about his well-being and the various maladies that forced him to scuttle the 2013 tour. "It was a bad year. I was in hospitals so frequently that the doctors were sick to death of me, and there's nothing more aging than lying in a hospital bed, trying to recover from hospital food. If your illness doesn't kill you then the hospital food sees you off. That's what it's there for. Anyway, it was my time to go to pieces. Much overdue."
Moz made light of his famous former band the Smiths, saying it "feels like 60″ years since the release of the band's eponymous debut instead of the actual 30 years that have passed since the album's February 20, 1984 drop date.
"I don't know a single person who wants a Smiths reunion!" Morrissey joked when inevitably inquired about the Smiths ever getting back together, and if there were any bands from his own youth he'd like to see reform. "But, no, there aren't any bands I like to see again because your memory of them is how they were in their prime or at their best or at their most desperate, and you look to them to be someone that they no longer are." more on this story
