So Morrissey is being a brat. In this story from Consequence of Sound, it’s reported that Morrissey is playing a show at the Observatory in Santa Ana, CA tonight and is refusing to go on unless a show scheduled for another room in the venue is cancelled. The other bands, We Are Scientists and PAWS have come out swinging with the following statement:
“Morrissey is currently trying to have our slot at tonights show in Santa Ana, California cancelled because he is playing in another room in the same venue and wishes for their to be no other artists performing in his vicinity.
This is an unbelievable act of complete and utter selfishness that should not be tolerated. This rich, has-been, ego maniac acting like a baby throwing toys from a pram. To satisfy his little power hungry brain. A complete disregard for others and a baffling lack of support/respect for young, hard working musicians.
People like this, with attitudes like this displays a classic example of why the music industry is still awash with disgusting garbage that should by now have been snuffed out. Pedestals, self righteous entitlement, disrespect and “competition”. Geez. It’s not like we’ve come all the way from Scotland to play for nothin’…
I’m just going to leave this photo and sentiment with you and we’ll report back with developments. We won’t go out without a fight!”
Anyone else think Morrissey’s show should be cancelled instead?
