Published Aug 15, 2008Morrissey is not a happy camper these days. As we previously reported , in the last few weeks he has postponed his upcoming album, slagged off a Smiths greatest hits package and come down equally hard on another hits package of solo material. Now adding to the list, Morrissey is disowning an upcoming live DVD.
The Mozzer is urging fans not to buy Live at the Hollywood Bowl, a concert DVD filmed last June, because it is being released against his wishes. He has issued a statement via the fansite True to You, insisting he is not involved with the release in any way, shape or form, and will not be collecting a pay cheque from the DVD sales.
Over to the Moz:
The slapdash release of Morrissey: Live at the Hollywood Bowlis done by Warner without any consultation to me whatsoever, and is in breach of their terms as laid out by themselves in an agreement made for the film between Warner and my ex-manager.
Being Warner, predictably the sleeve art is appalling. It is the work of cash-hounds, and I urge people NOT to buy it. I am not signed to Warner, and no royalties from this DVD will come to me. Please spend your money elsewhere. Thank you, MORRISSEY.
If you want to go against the Morrisseys wishes and piss him off even more, you can buy Live at the Hollywood Bowl as of October 6.
