Will Morrissey be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?

If Morrissey has a chance at all, it's with the Smiths. Highly unlikely they would honor his solo work before honoring the Smiths. And if they let in the Smiths, no way he gets in solo.

Long story short -- no chance.

Helloooooo. The Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCarthey, George Harrison. Cream, Eric Clappton. Should I go on.

FUCK all you who do think moz has the potential to be honored as a hall of famer. VIVA LA RESISTANCE!

I thought of something a week ago, and then I forgot, and then I just remembered again right now. But since it's pretty clear Moz would have nothing to do with a Smiths induction, and the Hall Ceremony tends to put a premium on bands able to perform, is it possible they'll skip The Smiths and wait for Morissey to become eligible?

My goodness I'm stupid: I failed to realise that Anthony Long was infact talking about solo artists being inducted after their groups are inducted.

Nah. Just nah. I like most of it, but nah. It'll never happen though. I don't think he'll ever live back up to The Smiths, even if they get back together.

He's just going into irrelevance now, which is a shame. He's founf this musical niche and he seems very comfortable.

The Smiths'll probably get in, and that's enough.

Yes, Stephen, we humans are despicable, meat-gulping bastards. Thank god you're not one of them.

Still, there's no alternative to leather, eh? How about walking barefoot, ever thought of that? You live in Southern California, so you're not gonna freeze yourself to death, you douche. If you wanna be so self-righteous, then at least do it properly.

And for chrissake's, get laid already. Go get pissed, have a ball, have some fun. Life's too short to be moping all the time. What are you trying to prove?
Ooh, wait a second, I get it: if you did all that, you wouldn't be so bitter and scornful any more and it would take away all of your creativity. You need to preserve all your rage to stay focused, you poor, tortured artist, you.

In that case, why don't you do swallow your own testicles (since you obviously don't need them and they just stand in your way) and reunite with Johnny and those other two twats whose names you've probably forgotten already? That would guarantee you bitterness and scorn for the rest of your life. The 2010 R&R HoF induction ceremony would be a start.

Sincerely yours,
A friend

He won't get in until the Smiths go in. His solo career hasn't really influenced anybody I can think of. The Smiths influenced all the Britpop, Post Punk Revival, and Alternative Rock bands out there. He makes accesible pop-rock songs, and alot of it's good, but not enough. He's more of a household name (or in the US) than the smiths, which sort of helps him. But I say no, just being realistic.

I don't fully get him either (I'm from middle England not northern England and born in '89, so that would probably explain it) but apparently the stuff you're referring to ("Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now", for example) is sarcastic. Bono says that those who call him miserable are in fact miserable people who lack a sense of humour. I guess that makes you one of them in Bono's eyes.

Tiiiiiimmmmmmeeeeee is like a dreeeaaaaammmmm
and nowwwwww for a time you are minnneeeve

Love interlude they did with sioxee or whatever


know nothing else, but that song somehow found it's way to me and the intro alone made me pick up a cello....which does not make me very cool

MHO is that The Smiths should be inducted first. They are more influential and relevant than Morrissey by himself (and I'm a great Moz admirer).

The more you ignore me, the closer I get.
