“I don’t want to go on much longer, really," he told Filter. "I think that would suggest a lack of imagination. A certain lack of dignity also. There has to reach a point where you’ve said enough, I think.”

Everyone entitled to an opinion - but the broad brush stroke of 'lack of imagination - lack of dignity' - cuts deep when applied to the journey men [women] who carried their music and creativity throughout their lives and to the grave...

Thren again its probably Mozza being Mozza - he'll be on a farewell tour with Tina Turner in 2099...

Not a Morrisey fan generally though I always think he's very funny. The last couple of times I have seen him on things he has seemed bland - not something I'd level at him across his career and rather overblown (I expect and accept any brickbats).......so for me it mightn't be a bad idea if he packed in!


Equally, I think he is a long way from the person who might at one time in his life fancied a dusty bookshop somewhere cold and northern

the three artists you mentioned Alf all did cover versions of songs written by other people,to be the one writing and motivating yourself can sometimes be hard as you get older,i haven't hit that point just yet but maybe he just wants to have a happy life?i wish the man the best personally i think he has done some of the best music on earth over the years

Well, he's clearly fed up with it so good for him.

Isn't it like anyone else who wants to retire! Fair play if that's what he wants to do!

I hope that he does not give up but if he does he has left us with an absolutley amazing back catalogue that will keep us all happy for years.

This thread is also being discussed on Morrisseysolo but it is very hard to have an intelligent discussion on that sight without someone biting your head off, some serious idiots on that site which is a pity because it is great for Moz news.

well i reached that point after the Longpigs,i was so fucked off with it all i very nearly packed it in cos i just couldn't hack the shallowness of the music industry but decided to have one last go with what i REALLY wanted to do all along,glad i did now.I know loads of musicians who get fed up with it its natural really this industry is full of shit and it doesn't take long for it to piss off the more sensitive of us.My advice,although i am sure it isn't wanted or needed is to go and have a long long break.......you will find out very soon if its still in you.
