Dear Morrissey,

Dear Morrissey, 'I KNOW' that you stopped reading the Morrissey-Solo website a long time ago, but I am writing to you, to bring to your attention something that has sickened a number of people to the very pit of their stomaches, but first, some background information.

    The little boy who has run onto the stage a couple of times at your concerts in New York, and who presented you with a Blue Rose at the Radio City Music Hall, is called Kyle. Kyle is eleven years old and from Long Island. I had the absolute pleasure to meet both Kyle and his father at your concert last week at Greenvale, and then met again with them both at the concert in Brooklyn. It is a breath of fresh air to find that an eleven year old has had the open mindedness to discover your music and appreciate it in the way that all we oldies do. While Kyle's counterparts are force fed Justin Blabber and One Dimension by record companies who have no interest in either talent or taste, Kyle has rejected such mind numbing atrocities, and has found the songs of the greatest living songwriter....YOU! I hope I'm not being too fawning, but it is true..... as you well know.

   After your concert in Brooklyn, where Kyle once again ran on stage to embrace you and show his love, a number of absolutely vile and disgusting comments were placed on the Morrissey-Solo website, not only by anonymous trolls, but by regular users. 'I KNOW' that you know nothing about the internet, but usually in such cases, a moderator would remove such disgusting comments, but rather than do that in this case, the moderator, joined in with the abuse. An eleven year old boy, bullied by so called fans, just because he adores Morrissey? It can't be right. The world is an ugly place, but Morrissey's world is about like minded lovers of your work, so why these people think it is OK to abuse an eleven year old boy, I don't know.

   The upshot of all the abuse from Solo, was that Kyle's dad decided at the very last minute, not to take his little boy to the show in Atlantic City, this was despite the fact that they had driven through the night from Brooklyn, and had spent over 200 dollars on staying at the House of Blues Hotel, as well of course as the money they spent on concert tickets, which were just thrown in the bin. Kyle's dad had read all the abuse on Solo, and was too frightened to take his son to see your concert. How heart breaking is that, but what a fantastic parent, to sacrifice seeing his idol, for the welfare of his boy. They got in the car and made the long trip back home to Long Island.

  Kyle's dad is the mildest, and most perfectly mannered person you could ever wish to meet, and I feel desperately upset that this has happened to him and his son. The reason Kyle presented you with a blue rose in October, is because he is the president of the Blue Rose Society, a small group of about twelve people, who took Oscar Wilde's idea of 'Green Carnation', and gave it a modern day spin for YOU. The Blue Rose, just like the Green Carnation, is an unnatural flower, and it represents unrequited love, which seems quite fitting, unless of course you have found true happiness, which I somehow doubt. The Blue Rose Society have adopted Trouble Loves Me as their theme tune, where as Kyle's all time favourite song is 'Ask.'  

Kyle would be honoured if you would either wear a Blue Rose, to show that you support his society, or perhaps dedicate a song to him. He won't mind if this is a request too far, and both Kyle and his dad have not been put off coming to your concerts by the actions of the mindless idiots on Solo, Kyle still loves you to bits.

You have made it BLATANTLY clear that you don't like the Solo website, by the fact that you and the band wore 'Fuck Morrissey Solo' t-shirts on stage, and I think I'm correct in believing that you have given a life time ban to the Solo owner David Tseng, so I cannot understand why your fans still use the website, is there NOTHING that can be done?

I will now post this letter to the mesmerizing Kristeen Young on twitter, who I have exchanged tweets with on a number of occasions. Hopefully she will pass it on to you for me.

Thank you for being you.

Trouble loves us all.

The Rat

  12. I cant help but think that we are partly to blame as we pushed him in to becoming the so called president dont forget kyle has been to other moz concerts and got on stage. Not one person had a go at him then so i can only conclude that it is because of a flower that he got abuse this time. For that we must be honest with ourselves

    2. Manc lad, NOBODY at the concerts had a go at Kyle, it is just on line abusers. Most people who saw Kyle with his rose were lovely people, and at both Tilles and Brooklyn, we were complimented for bringing roses for Moz, his genuine fans love it.
