Morrissey was apparently questioned by FBI and British Intelligence after speaking out against the American and British governments. The singer is a famous critic of the US-led war in Iraq, and has dubbed President George W. Bush a "terrorist" -- but he was baffled to be hauled in by authorities.
Morrissey has already started announcing tour dates in support of his forthcoming album, Ringleader of the Tormentors, which will see release across the pond on April 3rd and hopefully a day later here in the states.
