Given the now-you-see-him-now-you-don’t nature of Morrissey, the best bet for Smiths fans needing a fix of the band’s misanthropic frontman may be to pick up a copy of Con Chrisoulis’s “Tales of the Smiths: A Graphic Biography.”
The graphic novel, due out March 22 from Omnibus Press, is 464 pages all about “the teenage musicians who would become the Smiths” with “fascinating digressions about their influences,” including the New York Dolls, Nico, Sex Pistols, and Patti Smith.
Interestingly, the book’s intro is written by Simon Wolstencroft, who was in a band with Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and bassist Andy Rourke, but declined to join the Smiths because, legend has it, he didn’t like Morrissey’s voice.
The graphic novel may be the closest fans around here will get to Morrissey for a while. In December, the famously fickle singer canceled his show at the Orpheum due to “illness in the touring party.” Moz has made something of a habit of canceling or cutting short concerts for phantom reasons.
