Photo of young Morrissey at Sex Pistols concert?

I have no idea of the validity of this, but someone has posted this photo to Facebook, claiming that the guy in the black sweater with glasses on the left is Morrissey:

wasn't morrissey taller and skinnier? these big shoulders don't look very steven, but who knows
That is so blurry. How can one tell? Wasn't his hair a bit longer? And, I agree, that boy looks too big... :confused:
not for me either.doesnt seem to be his shape.
Wow, I think Morrissey got a kick out of seeing that photo. Great moment. His neck looks the same but he does look a bit bigger there. Also, he looks sad.
That's a great photo. From the expression on his face, it looks like Morrissey has just reached around and goosed the guy on the far right.
Don't look like him.....but it could be one of many others who started a group after seeing that show......Peter Hook anyone?
Blikey blood hell, reckon you lots are so desperate to see Uncle Steve and John Lydon together, just show up for power walk personal training day (Wednesday) from Malibu to Zuma.

The Motels pic is authentic, he always hits the Motels shows in So-Cal.

Stop saying "jumper".
thats what its called- a jumper,you know from the english language you lot bastardise
I doubt it. I'm sure when he was questioned on this gig years ago, he said said he sat on his own at the back of the hall.
