Morrissey's influence as a performer, songwriter, and cultural icon far exceeds the sales of his records. The living embodiment of Alternative guitar rock, he has been worshipped with a near-religious intensity by his fans, while suffering vitriolic abuse from non-believers. Adored by vegetarians, Mexicans, and J.K. Rowling, loathed by judges and a musician or two. We now document how he hit the big-time first with the Smiths and later as a solo performer. It details his battles with both the media and the people he worked with, after his big mouth struck again and again. It tells a story of his exodus for the grey UK to sunny LA, and after seven years hibernating, Morrissey achieved such a triumphant comeback.
