Steven Patrick Morrissey (Davyhulme, Lancashire, May 22, 1959), known by his surname Morrissey , is a British singer and lyricist. Vegetarian since he was 11, a staunch enemy of the British monarchy, known for his unusual baritone vocal style (although he sometimes uses falsetto), his jopo and his dynamic live performances. He declared himself celibate and asexual.

Reached prominence in the 1980s as a lyricist and vocalist for the band The Smiths. The band split in 1987 and Morrissey began a solo career. He was in the top ten in the UK Singles Chart ten times. His first solo album, Viva Hate, from 1988, entered the UK Albums Chart at number one.

He is widely regarded as an important innovator on the indie scene, NME magazine considers him “one of the most influential artists”, while The Independent says that “most pop stars have to be dead to reach the iconic status he has achieved in his life. “In 2004, Pitchfork Media called him” one of the most unique figures of Western popular culture of the last twenty years “.

Morrissey’s lyrics have been described as “dramatic, somber, funny vignettes about doomed relationships, lonely discotheques, the burden of the past and the prison of home.”

In October 2014, the singer revealed that he has fought against cancer in recent months, which is why he was forced to cancel some of his presentations.

Morrissey’s Biography

Morrissey was born in Park Hospital, now known as Trafford General Hospital, where his father, Peter Morrissey, worked as a doorman. His mother was a librarian. Both came from Ireland, but had emigrated to England just before the birth of Morrissey. They, along with Jackie, their older sister, educated Morrissey in Hulme, Manchester. In 1965, the family moved to Queen Square, belonging to the same town, but located near Moss Side, at 384 Kings Road in the suburbs of Stretford. In 1969, many old streets of the district were demolished. Morrissey has maintained an intimate and emotional relationship with his mother throughout his life; however, the relationship with his father was tense for years, and even non-existent at times.

When Morrissey was a child he developed interests that marked him. Among them were some female music groups from the 1960s and singers such as Sandie Shaw, Marianne Faithfull and Timi Yuro. He was also interested in the English movement of the 1950s called kitchen sink realism focused on drama, as well as the works of playwright, novelist and poet Óscar Wilde, as well as other writers, such as John Keats and Goethe. An event that made a big impact on Morrissey during his childhood was a series of murders committed between 1963 and 1965 by a couple (Ian Brady and Myra Hindley). This series of crimes, which had five children as fatalities, were called by the press The Moors Murders (“The murders of the páramos”). Time later, Morrissey responded to these facts with the controversial song “Suffer Little Children” in the first album of The Smiths.

In his teens, Morrissey’s athletic ability saved him much of the bullying. However, he has exposed this period as a time when he often felt lonely and depressed.As a teenager, Morrissey experienced loneliness and depression and, in order to combat that, he medicated himself to treat the depressions that would follow him. The rest of his life, Morrissey worked in an unemployment department and administrative areas of the British government. In her free time, when she lived in her mother’s house, she concentrated on the novel and on publications referring to two of her great heroes: actor James Dean and the New York Dolls group.

Morrissey switched to punk rock style and joined The Nosebleeds writing several songs. Shortly after, the English magazine New Musical Express published one of his songs, when the band had already separated. A year later, in 1978, Morrissey replaced the late singer Wayne Barrett.
