Morrissey -- the former lead singer of The Smiths -- was rushed to the hospital last night after collapsing on stage during a concert.

The 50-year-old was performing at the Oasis Leisure Center in Swindon, UK when he complained of breathing difficulties.

The singer was rushed to the Great Western Hospital where he remains in stable condition -- a rep for the hospital said his condition is not thought to be life-threatening.

UPDATE: The singer has been released from the hospital -- a spokeswoman for the hospital said he was "much improved."

morrissey is one of the few celebrities around who actually deserves to be celebrated. he was one of a handful of bright spots on the musical scene of the 80's, which was mired in the mindless mediocrity of madonna, hair bands and george michael. 25 years on and he's still full of relevance, character and outstanding lyrics.

Morrissey was and still is one of the finest thinkers/songwriters to ever grace this earth. As a fledgling vegetarian back in 84-85,all I had to do is listen to "Meat is Murder" to keep myself on track. 25 years later,still vegetarian and still adore "Heaven knows I'm Miserable Now", and still trying to make Caligula blush. I love you forever Morrissey!
