Morrissey Has Strong Words for UK Politicians Following Manchester Attack
Many have come forward to voice their support and concern in the wake of the deadly bombing at Ariana Grande’s Manchester Arena concert on Sunday night, and Morrissey can now be added to that list. The Smiths’ frontman has lashed out against the perceived tepid comments and reactions from British politicians, as well as the Queen following the confirmed terrorist attack.
“Theresa May says such attacks “will not break us”, but her own life is lived in a bullet-proof bubble, and she evidently does not need to identify any young people today in Manchester morgues,” he wrote via Facebook. “Also, “will not break us” means that the tragedy will not break her, or her policies on immigration. The young people of Manchester are already broken – thanks all the same, Theresa.” He goes on to say, “Politicians tell us they are unafraid, but they are never the victims. How easy to be unafraid when one is protected from the line of fire. The people have no such protections.”

Teen rock band Vinyl Ambush were playing a backyard set to celebrate a birthday on Saturday of the long weekend, when Peel police rolled up to the Mississauga house in response to a noise complaint. Party’s over, right? It turns out the party was just getting started.
After getting the band to turn down their amps, the police left only to return later with Const. Joel Clark, a former drummer, who joined the band for some Vinyl Ambush originals, telling the crowd he played in a few bands back in the day, and offering the kids some advice for the future. The whole thing was captured on video and looks like it was one hell of a party.
Watch Norah Jones Cover Soundgarden’s ‘Black Hole Sun’ Where Chris Cornell Played Final Show
Last night, Norah Jones played a solo-piano cover of Soundgarden’s ‘Black Hole Sun’ at the Fox Theater in Detroit, the same theater where the band played its final show before Chris Cornell’s death. Jones’ added a bit of her jazzy flair to the lovely ballad, and it sounds amazing. Since Cornell’s death many bands have honored the late singer’s legacy by performing covers of his songs, including U2, Metallica, Ryan Adams, and Aerosmith.
