It was Twenty Five Years Ago Today

I Unexpectedly met Morrissey in Liverpool, 11th august 1987...And he was a perfect gentleman. ( The person he was with, however, was NOT...sorry, didn't catch Its name at the time...).
I wrote a poem to commemorate the event, and with any luck, I shall post it here....

Re: It was Twenty Five Years Ago Today!!!

...Longish story ( I have osted it before, somewhere on here..), I will gladly re-tell it again soon, as I am busy today.....thanks for you interest!

I've save you the trouble:)
...It's time the tale were told...........
I was on date with a lady called Pat once in Liverpool ( August 11th, 1987)
And as we were leaving the Adelphi Hotel, I almost bumped into Morrissey.
I was so shocked/surprised at seeing him, I blurted out rather stupidly "You're the singer from the Smiths, aren't you?".....( I think they were in the process of splitting up at the time...).
I asked him to please wait, as I wanted to go back into the hotel, and get some paper, so I could get an autograph.....

The receptionist was a stuffy cow who said I couldn't have a piece, as I was not a paying guest....So, I tore my Cigarette packet into pieces, and Morrissey gave me 3 autographs ( 2 extras, for friends, who were Smiths fans too...)
All the time, A person ( male, unknown name...)who Morrissey was with, kept moaning at him to leave us.....But Morrisey was very nice and patient.....Pat, The lady I was with, had NO idea who Morrissey was, but she Hugged him, and kissed him anyway ( yes, Pat was like that...). She got Morrissey to autograph her arm ( I still have the Sacred pen...)
I shook his hand and off he/they walked.....
Pat asked me if I wanted to follow, ( she could tell I was still "Gobsmacked" at meeting him),but I decided I had done all I ever wanted to....I met him, shook his hand, got his autograph, told him he was a genius.....so we just carried on with our night out....
Very nice fella indeed, in my opinion...
Pat finished the night by wiping the signature off her arm With a Wet bar towel!!!


tbh I'm more intrigued about who he was with than anything else? What did he look like? Friend? Releatve? Accountant? Lawyer?

Thank you Vicar!!! may your god bless you for taking the trouble to re-post that!!

off the top of my head, the other chap with Morrissey seemed more of a "Business contact" than a friend of his ( ...That's just a Gut feeling on my part..) He was about similar height to moz, and around the same age ( @ 27/28...) and had that sort of Brown-streaked with silvery highlights-hairstyle that was so popular with blokes back then. I think he was wearing a Brown suede Jacket...he had a thinnish, "Pointy" face, and a whiny sort of high-pitched voice. He kept saying "Come on Steven, we're going to be late" ( this was about 8.30 pm at night..) and they both walked off up the hill towards Liverpool Cathedral.
Thanks again for saving me the trouble of re typing!!:thumb:

Wow. That's a great little story! Why wasn't his friend nice? I wouldn't know what the hell I'd say to Morrissey. Probably blurt out a random song name and ask him to perform it at his next tour haha!
