Morrissey Has Mastered the Art of Being Morrissey

Morrissey With Kristeen Young Majestic Theatre, Dallas Thursday, May 22, 2014

You have to hand it to Morrissey: He's one aging rock star who will not go softly into that good night. No, his band didn't wear the "Meat Is Murder" T-shirts that were mooted to be the plan. (The shirts were bright red and said "SLAG" in big, bold letters instead.) But after three decades of playing the role of Morrissey, he remains unapologetically himself, with all the cantankerousness, cynicism, and foppish affectations that go along with it. Few people own themselves as well as Moz does.
