    My goodness.
    I've always liked the Smiths, but that's a bit extreme, Morrissey.


    source
    MANCHESTER music legend Morrissey sparked controversy when he announced Ronald Reagan's death live on stage during a concert - and then declared he wished it was George Bush who had died instead.

    Thousands of fans at Dublin Castle, in Ireland, cheered when the ex-Smiths frontman made the announcement that the former American president, who had battled with Alzheimer's Disease, had passed away.

    And an even bigger cheer followed when Morrissey - who is no stranger to controversy - then said he wished it had been the current President, George W Bush, who had died.

    Fan Tony Murray said: "He commented about the death of Ronald Reagan and when he wished that it was George W instead the crowd went wild."

    The Dublin concert was the latest leg of Morrissey's European tour, which began at the M.E.N. Arena last month when the ever-popular performer made his first appearance in the city for 12 years.

    He is due to appear at the Move festival at Old Trafford cricket ground next month.

    A spokesman for Morrissey's record label, Sanctuary Records, said: "We do not have a recording of the gig, but as far as we can tell, Morrissey was just alerting the audience to the fact that Ronald Reagan had died.

    "He then simply followed that up with his comment about George Bush, which was his own opinion. He is no stranger to controversy."

    Ya, that's too extreme. I may not agree with a lot of Bush's policies, but I wouldn't wish death on him. Jeez... :rolleyes:

    I understand that same sentiment was verbalized in Cuba, as well. We really live in a hate-filled world when it comes to George W., but then he has about as many admirers/supporters as haters.

    Fucking Morrissey is a has been. Should have quit when the Smiths broke up. Looks like he will stoop to any depth to drum up publicity.
