Roberta Flack has ALS, now ‘impossible to sing,’ rep says
November 15, 2022
NEW YORK (AP) — A representative for Roberta Flack announced Monday that the Grammy-winning musician has ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and can no longer sing.
And why did Morrissey “abruptly end his concert” in LA? Was it too cold for him that evening, as one fan guessed in an acerbic tweet? Or did “our free press” highlight that speculation, to obscure the possibility that Morrissey was feeling ill?
Morrissey upsets crowd after ending concert 30 minutes in
November 15, 2022
CNN — Morrissey abruptly ended his concert at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles just 30 minutes in.
The singer left fans upset on Saturday after he left the stage after performing only a few songs.
The former Smiths front man did not explain his departure. Instead, a bandmate of his told the crowd, “Sorry, but due to unforeseen circumstances, the show is not going to continue. Very sorry. We’ll see you next time. Apologies.”
Fans took to Twitter to try to figure out what the “unforeseen circumstance” was, with one speculating it was too cold outside. Earlier on, the singer had commented on the weather, saying it was chilly.
“So, #Morrissey just walked off the stage at @Greek_Theatre after 30 min. Apparently, he was too cold. Meanwhile, it’s in the 50s,” the fan wrote.
As to this next item: Was Ricky Wilson “drunk,” as one fan supposed—or was he otherwise impaired?

Fans have shared their disappointment and concern at Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson “slurring”, “stumbling” and “forgetting lyrics” at the band’s London show this weekend.
Kaiser Chiefs performed at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday night (November 5), with a number of fans taking to social media during and after the show to share their reactions to Wilson’s performance.
“At the o2 watching Kaiser Chiefs and Ricky is clearly very drunk and acting pretty odd, it’s actually quite concerning tbh,” one attendee wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, the proudly “vaccinated” Neil Young has announced that he’ll no longer play at venues serving “factory-farmed animal products” (whereas, if he were performing back in 2021, he would have had no problem playing venues requiring “vaccination”):
Neil Young will no longer perform in venues that serve factory farmed animal products
November 17, 2022
Neil Young is blackballing all music venues that serve factory-farmed meat and diary [sic] to attendees due to its environmental impact.
Although the Canadian folk legend hasn't hit the road for a full tour since 2019, Young is proposing to stay on hiatus unless there are available venues that meet his standards of sustainability.
Specifically, the singer will be avoiding venues that provide food to their customers sourced from factory farms; a process which harvests animal products via concentrated animal feeding operations.
Not only is the method deemed cruel - livestock are kept in poor living conditions and receive inhumane treatment - but it has a serious impact on the environment, which itself intensifies climate change by releasing great volumes of greenhouse gases.
While speaking to Canada’s CBC Radio , the musician shares his reasoning behind his decision to boycott venues that are "fed by factory farms".
"When I look at the compromise that I would have to make to do that, the things that I don't believe in, that I'd have to endorse, it doesn't turn me on.
"I can deal with the power for the venue, I can make it clean. I can make the P.A. clean, the lights clean, the electricity in the building clean. I can clean up all my vehicles. I've got the right fuel. I can do all of that. But the food — all those places are fed by factory farms. I can't support it."
As for what he'd like the venues to serve instead, he says he'd like there to be "good food that has to be clean food, sustainably grown, and presented in a sustainable way."
Neil Young is himself now a factory farmed animal product, no?
