The Smiths – a tribute - Proof Spirit
BY AIDEN ⋅ MAY 13, 2013
t was thirty years ago that a band from Manchester released their first single ‘Hand In Glove’. For the next four years they released the songs that made me laugh, made me cry and definitely changed my life even if they maybe didn’t save it. I’m not going to try and tell you how great they were – either you already know or my words won’t persuade you. However, to me, they are in a class of their own and no band can ever touch them. This is my tribute. So thank you, to Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce: The Smiths.
UPDATE 16th May – Since posting this piece I have had many enquiries about possible prints – I am looking into it now and hope to be able to bring you news very soon. I’ll announce any developments here and also on Twitter and Facebook. Thanks for all the comments and to everyone who has shared this.
