Check out the relatively crude yet interesting paintings in the replies, and maybe submit a song for him to paint in the future.

The respiratory infection Morrissey contracted in Miami has worsened, and in the interest of making a full recovery, all further touring plans have been halted. Morrissey thanks his fans for their compassion, understanding, and well-wishes during this difficult period as he recuperates.
With access to infinite bytes of media, describing a digital object as "rare" sticks out like a lumbering anachronism. YouTube - the official home of lumbering anachronisms - excels at these extraordinarily contradictory moments. Here, for instance, are the Beatles, performing a "VERY RARE" rendition of "Happy Birthday". That sonic obscurity has been heard 2.3 million times. And here is a "Rare Acoustic" version of Slash performing "Sweet Child O' Mine". Over 26 million have devoured this esoteric Axl-less morsel.

"I really feel that animal rights [is] the next great rights movement," Gurewitz says. "It's early days, and a lot of people don't really understand how profound the change is going to be. But that was also the case with women's rights and civil rights. One of these days, you're gonna hear a president of the United States speak in favor of animal rights."

It's no secret that bands like Brand New and Manchester Orchestra are among this website's favorites.
