Today May 22nd Morrissey celebrates his 56th birthday.
Morrissey was born on 22 May 1959 at Park Hospital in Davyhulme, Lancashire, England.
In the early 80s, Morrissey met the guitarist Johnny Marr and the two began a songwriting partnership which revolutionized pop/rock music with the beautifully aching music of The Smiths releasing four studio albums. Unfortunately, the band split up in 1987 after the release of Strangeways Here We Come.
In 1988, just a year later, Morrissey kicked off his solo career releasing his critically acclaimed debut album "Viva Hate".
Since then, Morrissey has developed a cult-like following of fans throughout his solo career.
