Anyway... 10 out of 10 for me... :D

No, I think the story about the hearing aid and the letter is true. I read it either in an interview or a fanzine (can't remember). It was different and tragic and beautiful. He was easily touched by such things back in the day.

As for my results - 8/10

The only thing I know about The Smiths is 2 of 'em who were no more than extras screwed the main talent for money! And Marr seems to be as weak as Judge Weaks! I shall never buy anything again to do with The Smiths for fear those 2 leeches getting a penny! Hate scroungers/users. Moz is now his own star, and no longer carrying extra baggage. I ashume I make myself clear?

I do it again, on my Smith's albums, studio ones, and they are Legend;

Morrissey-voice
Johnny Marr-guitars
Andy Rourke-bass
Mike Joyce - drumms

'and they say he's mentall'... I'm no Judge but the Smiths albums are still standing strong and give me something extra in life...
