Artefact

A few days after the ill-fated Preston Guildhall gig, which I also attended.

Alastair Says –
I was at the Preston gig. I couldn't get a ticket and we we're hanging around at the back door of the Guild Hall talking to a girl , Lucy, who'd been following the tour round. The band suddenly arrived and we had the cheek to ask Johnny if he could get us in. " Yeah, sure what are you're names". We sailed to the front of the queue and we were in.
Of course we know Morrissey was felled during the first song 'The Queen is Dead' and that was that.
Talk about pride coming before a fall.
At least I made a friend for a while, the charming mohicaned Lucy, an art student in Coventry, who we put up afterwards. Wonder what happened to her?
