Morrissey announces where he wants to be buried

Ex-Smiths singer anounces where his 'Cemetery Gates' will be

Morrissey has revealed that his search for his perfect final resting place may be over.

Speaking to the Daily Record, the former Smiths frontman cited the celebrity cemetery Hollywood Forever in his former hometown of Los Angeles as his preferred graveyard.

He declared, “I like Hollywood Forever. I’ve sat there for a very long time and felt quite good about it.”


The singer explained that he decided on the cemetery after visiting the grave of The Ramones singer Joey Ramone.

“I always felt I wanted nothing more than my name, birth date, death date and all three names, Steven Patrick Morrissey,” he said. “And I’ve even considered putting money down for reserving a spot.”

For now though the singer is still very much alive, and even played a show at the weekend near his preferred graveyard.
