Morrissey is now 54 years old and he was born in Lancashire, England to Irish Catholic immigrants. His father, Peter, was a hospital porter and his mother, Elizabeth, was a librarian. He has only one sibling, an older sister named Jackie. Over the years Morrissey remained very close to his beloved mother, however, his relationship with his father was sadly somewhat strained. As a child, his interests included girl groups of the 60's, author Oscar Wilde and actor James Dean. The "Moors Murders of the 1960's," in which a husband and wife raped and killed quite a few local children in Manchester, had a big impact on him as a child. Morrissey had natural athletic ability which helped him to not be bullied as a child although he has said that he was lonely and depressed during adolescence.
Steven Patrick Morrissey became popular as the frontman for the legendary band, The Smiths. This band was very popular amongst people in the United Kingdom but it broke up in 1987. He decided to embark on a solo career after The Smiths disbanded and he ended up on the top ten in the UK singles charts on ten different occasions. Morrissey has been regarded as one of the pioneers of indie music. The music magazine NME said that he was "one of the most influential artists ever," and The Independent gave him this amazing compliment: "most pop stars have to be dead before they reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime."
Morrissey is well known for his unique lyrics which often relate to topics such as relationships, burdens and loneliness. In his songs he uses a mainly baritone voice, however, he sometimes throws in a bit of falsetto. Animal rights are at the top of his list of priorities in life. His eccentric hairstyle and compelling and charismatic performances put him in a class of his own. Over the years, Morrissey has had a number of contrarian opinions which have brought upon countless media controversies. All of these distinctive features about Morrissey put him in a class of his own and this is why he is so popular around the World.
