Raise a glass to former Smiths singer

Morrissey celebrates his 50th birthday today (May 22) by playing a gig in his hometown of Manchester, playing at the Apollo venue.

To mark the occasion NME.COM has posted up a Morrissey photo gallery featuring images of the singer, plus his most memorable quotes.

Plus we’ve been thinking up bands as Morrissey and Smiths stuff for today’s Friday Fun.

Check out the gallery and Friday Fun, and don’t forget to raise a glass for ‘This Charming Man’ tonight.
