Whatever the rights and wrongs of the situation are I don't think it's ever taken into account how inexperienced Morrissey was at the time. I think of that line "And in a belted coat, I secretly knew, I hadn't a cllue". As the oldest member of the band he obviously took on the burden of decision making but no one seems to take into account how young he was. It was probably chaos because they were learning as they went on. Which one of us would cope in that situation? I know I'd find it very difficult but I'd also have a natural suspicion of handing over decisions to someone else.
