I've never been the biggest Morrissey fan. He's a bit to dark for my tastes, but he does have a few good songs. So did The Smiths.
When I was 19, I saw a crowd of a hundred fans surround his tour bus. He signed one album, and threw the thing about 100 feet, and walked into the hotel. It was bizarre.
Anyway, comedian/talk show host Chris Gethard was on Jimmy Fallons late show the other night, and he talked about how he showed up when Fallon had Morrissey on, because he wanted his autograph.
He had him sign his arm, and then had it tattooed. His friend tried to talk him out of doing that.
He also added, "I had a girlfriend at the time, but we broke up. Now I'm worried...when I meet a new woman, I'm going to have to explain why I have that on my arm."
(it's also weird that Morrissey wrote out his name, instead of a signature).
Ah, the things fans will do.
