Shannon Smith On Grant Morrison’s Surprise Appearance In A 1965 Del Shannon Video
posted May 28, 2009

Yes. That is Grant Morrison. Not a doubt in my mind. The only question is if he is immortal or a time traveler. The fact that he used to have hair in the '80s and early '90s, before he pretty much became King Mob, kind of throws off the immortal thing. However, I think that whatever race he really is does not have any hair at all and that his hair in the '80s and early '90s was a wig. I expect that between now and 2012 he will peel off his false eyebrows and eye lashes and reveal his true nature to mankind.

p.s. I also believe the organ solo in that Del Shannon song may be a factor in some sort of time travel equation or magical spell.

Tom Spurgeon Responds: Interesting. As I recall, Grant Morrison is an acknowledged master of organ-related magic.
