Interview with photographer Kevin Cummins, about Morrissey
When did you first meet Morrissey?
"I met Morrissey in the mid to late Seventies when he used to be with Slaughter And The Dogs. I lived in Manchester and you used to see Morrissey at quite a lot of gigs. He'd always come to Bryan Ferry or Roxy Music, Marc Bolan. He was into all that glam thing. I remember him jumping onstage once with Marc Bolan and playing air guitar and then diving into the audience. Bolan didn't know what was going on. And Morrissey was sort of involved with them and Headbanger And The Nosebleeds and I saw the first gig Morrissey ever did when they supported Magazine at the Ritz. With him and Billy Duffy playing guitar. Their only moment together. It was sort of slightly rocky, a bit odd really.
somehow I can't imagine this..... wasn't Morrissey about 13 at the time he saw Bolan?
