Morrisey-and-Joey-BartonMORRISSEY met backstage at Glastonbury with soccer bad-boy JOEY BARTON.


The former Smiths front man met up with Newcastle United midfielder after Barton arranged the meet-up via Glastonbury security.

Barton, who was jailed for an assault outside McDonalds in Liverpool and received a further conviction for violence, tweeted a photo on Twitter captioned This Charming Man.

Last week, Joey revealed he had what he called 'the best phone call of my life' after getting clearance to meet Morrisey.

What Morrissey made of Barton's adulation is anyone's guess.

However, Morrissey played a stormer of a set even though he told fans “I'm from sruffy old Mancfester” and adding: “I'll try to sing as fast as I can as I know you're here to see U2.”
