Former Smiths frontman Morrissey has appeared to suggest he still plans to retire from music at the age of 55, putting the time for him to hang up the microphone at 2014.
During an interview with JuiceOnline, Morrissey was reminded of a previous comment in which he had said he couldn’t see himself performing past the age of 55. When asked if that remains the case, Morrissey answered ‘Yes’, before adding:
“I am slightly shocked to have gone as far as I have. This is my 30th year, and I’ve aged a lot recently, which is bit distressing for me, as it must be for everyone. The body changes shape and there’s nothing you can do about it. Do I continue as a modern day Andy Williams? I take one hour at a time. We will all probably be blown up by the Syrian government soon, anyway, so it hardly matters in the great scheme of things.”
The wait for Morrissey’s tenth solo album continues after the singer revealed last year he is looking for a suitable record company to distribute his new material.Just Published:
