I was brought into the fold of fan Smithdom, sadly towards the end of the bands career in fall of 1986, heard HOW SOON IS NOW? while scanning the radio for good music. Stumbled upon WMSE a college radio station in my home town; Milwaukee. Heard that now familiar staccato guitar, Johnny Marr opeing and was hooked.
I picked up Meat is Murder and all the back catalog and will forever cliam The Smiths as #1 favorite band of all time and Morrissey #1 favorite singer!!
God bless crappy Milwaukee radio stations and all that hair metal sewage.....it drove me to the Smiths!!
