Meanwhile, popular music website cleans house… photo looks remarkably like Moz, no?

TMZ has reported that Morrissey’s erstwhile bodyguard Bradley Steyn is suing Moz for being fired because he failed/refused/wisely ignored the erstwhile Smiths icon’s demand (through one of his handlers, natch) to put a hit on one “DavidT” who was behind Moz fansite Morrissey-solo.com. Yeah, this news item is that lame.
Stereogum is reporting that “Steyn says that Morrissey’s tour manager asked if the fan “could be gotten rid of” and tried to get him to find the fan’s home address…. Morrissey has had problems with this particular fan site (and this particular fan) since as early as 2003. The fan in question, who goes by the username DavidT, received a cease and desist letter from Moz’s lawyers after posting an unsubstantiated rumor that the band and crew hadn’t been paid for a leg of a 2002 tour. Over the past decade, the site has continued to run and post news and rumors about Morrissey’s activity.”
Wait, are you sure this isn’t a Prince news item about bootlegs? [No. — Moz fan Ed.] [Yes –Prince tape trader Ed.] [No — all three of you are fired. – Ed.]
