In which Morrissey is showered with flowers during “This Charming Man.” No wonder a critic in 1983 wrote: “If the boy’s head is anything to go by, The Smiths are going to be B-I-G.” A born frontman, I say. (Still waiting for vintage footage to surface of the band playing “Panic” as Moz is fanned and fed grapes.) Either way, can’t wait to read his memoir.
