Morrissey doesn't get the Tori vote

MANC legend Morrissey can be assured he's crossed off Tori Amos's Christmas card list. Piano-playing Tori launched a startling rant against Mozzer at her Manchester Apollo gig on Sunday night.

It all came about after she told her audience she would be playing a "legendary Mancunian tune".

Cue calls from the crowd to belt out a Smiths' number. But Tori came back with the response: "I don't like Morrissey, and I'll tell you why." She went on to recount the story of how many years ago they had both been appearing on a TV show.

"Afterwards I walked past him in the corridor, and said, `Hey, great songs man'. And he turned to me and said: `What the **** do you know?'"

What Tori said next can't be repeated, but there was much stamping of feet.

The "legendary tune" she had meant was Oasis's Don't Look Back In Anger, but it seems Tori is still angry , as she personalised the lyrics with: "You ain't ever gonna tear my heart out, Morrissey."
