As yet, I haven't managed to find the 'turquoise' reference, but Our Heather has managed to find the article that mentioned the oesophagus, albeit that there is no mention of old Barrett.
It was January 31st 2013 that Morrissey first made it public that his oesophagus was being treated, but 'coincidentally', there was an MW article nine days earlier (January 22nd 2013) titled, 'Why I Love 'Years of Refusal' by Broken' which mentioned 'oesophagus' in the opening sentence. I wrote about this 'coincidence' on FTM Day 510 (February 5th 2013), but I had completely forgotten about it until Jon the Con mentioned it.... well, it was nearly five years ago. We forget so much, but then again, SO MUCH happens around here, it is easy to forget.
The 'Why I love YOR' article wasn't reproduced in full on Day 510, but I have found a full copy in my secret drawers, so here it is (sorry about the light type, but it was white writing on the MorrisseysWorld blog):

I am sure that Morrissey has pointed me towards The Promise because it was the influence for one or more of the songs on Low In High School, and when I tweeted words to this extent earlier today, Morrissey (as Morfessa) favourited my tweet. If nothing else, The Promise is helping me understand more about the history and complexities of Israel.
In other, other news, Morrissey has taken to Facebook to make a statement about his recent interview with Der Spiegel:
Tomorrow I shall publish my concert lists.
