Morrissey canceled his January 24th show in Flint earlier this week, and postponed dates in Minneapolis and Chicago, citing a "band member illness" as the cause.

His next show is currently scheduled for Monday in Asheville, North Carolina.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain.

Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
