A Conversation for The Smiths - the Band


Post 1


the smiths in my opinion are the best band to come out of the eighties and as any smiths fan will know morrisey is probably the best lyricist ever and the rythym section comprising of mike joyce and andy rourke are cracking musicians and i had the plearure of meeting the man [aandy rourke] afew months back and he was a proper safe guy who i hardly reckonised and i did get very drunk and waschatting alot of crapp and that still didnt put him off talking to me apparently the last i heard him and joyce were back working together and apparently played a secret gig with ian brown in a dogy pub in altrincham

It'd be good if that rhythm section did work together again. smiley - smiley

How's Andy Rourke looking these days? As mentioned in the guide entry, he did have some serious health problems at one time.
