Singer Morrissey ‘Officially Died’ for Nine Minutes


Never mind “hang the DJ”, Morrissey ‘officially died’ for ‘nine minutes’

The ex Smiths front-man and founder member “officially died” for “nine minutes” back in 2013 after a very nasty bout of food poisoning in Peru.

Morrissey revealed that a bout of food poisoning whilst he was touring in South America proved to be almost fatal, causing his heart to stop beating for a full nine minutes before he was revived.


Talking about his upcoming tour he told Alternative Nation rock website: “I’m also always excited to be in South America, even though the last visit to Peru gave me food poisoning and I officially died for nine minutes. That was fun.”

This hasn’t been the only health scare for the UK born 56-year-old singer/songwriter – he previously admitted to having undergone a series of cancer treatments in recent years.

He said: “They have scraped cancerous tissues four times already, but whatever. If I die, then I die. And if I don’t, then I don’t.”

Lets hope Morrissey doesn’t check out any time soon!!
