On Wednesday of last week, in light of Morrissey's tour being cancelled, I sent him an email to try and offer some kind of words of support. I signed off my email as "Your friend". Here is the reply I received on Friday:
"Your friend"? You cannot be serious.
There was nowhere to go except those hills! The Jesse words that Morrissey was referring to related to this True-To-You statement made on Friday:
I have no idea why I got lumped in with the "false friends", and I cannot begin to describe the feeling of hurt, but in the grand scheme of things my feelings are of little relevance, what is far more important is that during this desperately dark time for Morrissey, he realises that not all of his fans are like the Solowers who are once again using the events of last week to dance all over his un-dug grave.
I have reopened my blog so that the members of the Blue Rose Society can offer their support and thanks to the man who will ALWAYS be our hero.
The events of last week will soon be forgotten. Tomorrow, The Bullfighter Dies is released as a single, and in just four weeks time, World Peace is None of Your Business will be released. I am as excited as I have been for every other Morrissey release. My hero is back.
And as for the BRS being "as dead as the Queen", well we'll just have to see about that.
