Morrissey in concert
The iconic front man of The Smiths, Morrissey is widely credited as a seminal figure in the emergence of indie rock and Britpop. The Smiths emerged from the British independent music scene in the 1980s and Morrissey led the band to 15 studio, live and compilation albums in their short five years together. After The Smiths disbanded, Morrissey launched a prolific solo career that included 49 singles and 12 solo top 10 albums, three of them landing at No. 1 on the UK charts. His most recent release, World Peace Is None Of Your Business, went on to become one of the most critically acclaimed records of 2014.
