king of all goth about 25 years ago.
i'm sure some goth kids loved him, but to call Morrissey the king of goth is retarded.
Morrissey headed a band with Billy Duffy of the Cult, in the 70s, and then of course made it huge in the 80s with the Smiths, with later-to-be Modest Mouse, Paul McCartney, and The The guitar-great Johnny Marr. Morrissey sells out his arena concerts in a matter of minutes, if not seconds.
Call him a POS self-important a-hole whatever, but if you don't know who Morrissey is, then there's a hole in your cultural lexicon.
