He's wearing his own band's t-shirt!? Was that kind of thing common in the 80's, or was it just drummers?

Given that, in the UK at least, The Smiths were the best band of the 80's I think we can forgive Joyce attire that would be seen as hubris in any other act.Their was NOBODY else to endorse in those dark days.

The Smiths were great, great band. Were they big in North America?

Testify:

Well, there was always Depeche Mode

(now that I think of it . . . maybe you're right)

Homem:

I'll go along with that . . . in fact, I'm still trying to figure out how Johnny Marr and Morrissey knew enough about me to write 'The Boy with the Thorn in His Side'.

What, you mean I'm not the only one?

Mr. D:

Iiiii . . . disagree.

Richard:

Fairly big. They didn't have any hits, but they had a large and devoted following here; me being one.

They made life in Flint, Michigan, bearable for me in the eighties, which was no easy task.
