Now that Morrissey is a right wing nutcase his impersonators are taking flack

Now that Morrissey is a right wing nutcase his impersonators are taking flack
Morrissey is a man who didn’t just take his legacy and ruin it, he picked up a beautiful body of songs and then smeared them in his own shit. His wholehearted embrace of racists and right winger nutcases, of which he appears to now be one himself, has damaged the Smiths… but spare a thought for the people who regularly perform his work.
 
Morrissey might have cancelled gigs (ticket sales probably won’t be affected), but Smiths tribute acts were going strong, yet even they’ve been hit. Manchester Evening News spoke to the lead singer of The Smiths Ltd, aka Johnny Turner, and he explained:
 
“It has started filtering through to me… Someone posted on our website asking if I do political rants in between songs, and another asking if I’m a fake Morrissey do I have the same fake views as him… It’s not worth responding to those sorts of comments, you’re just putting fuel on the fire.”
 
Will he carry on? “For us, as a tribute band, it’s all about the music first and foremost and celebrating the music of The Smiths.”
