Last fall, Morrissey revealed that he had underwent a series of cancer treatments. With typical Morrissey flair for the dramatic, he said:
If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t. Right now I feel good. I am aware that in some of my recent photos I look somewhat unhealthy, but that’s what illness can do. I’m not going to worry about that, I’ll rest when I’m dead.
