Who does he look like?

(apparently clicking on it enlarges it)
In this picture, people say he looks like Jared Leto, Ricky Schroder, Billy Corgan...
With different hair, and with different glasses, I've caught him looking like Moz in certain photos, and he definitely has some
expressions he pulls that remind me of him.
Maybe circa Alma Matters.
And in some of the 85-90 years' photos...
It's funny how people can make you think of someone but not really look at all like them in any real sense.
It's probably just an Irish thing, tribal or something.
What I wouldn't give for a clone, complete with the skill for words!
Blue eyes KILL me.
I have two ex's, one called Stephen (the loathsome ph) and one called Patrick.
I didn't even know (or had totally forgotten somehow, in spite of Ouija Board,) that those were Moz's
first and middle names until I went to look it up on-line in 2006 whilst in search of middle names for baby William.
I sort of sat looking at the wiki page with a gaping mouth and thought, "well, those are out."
I didn't ever really read much about him or The Smiths when I was growing up because there
weren't any magazines or books about them around where I lived. (the sticks)
I just listened to his music, and, as I have said in my blog before, did everything I could to guard against
taking in too much information about the band because I didn't want to read anything that might have put me off.
I relied too heavily on that poetry to risk it.
Those songs, to this day, regardless of what he meant when writing them, are associatively bonded to my memories growing up.
It has been so weird living in the same place he comes from, trying to reconcile that these streets would have been the landscape for his thought processes.
I spent my childhood dreaming of England, my landscape was home, with my head in Manchester.
And in keeping with the themes that plague my life, now I'm in Manchester, dreaming of home.
