This Charming Man

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending Morrissey's first ever solo gig in Amsterdam. Our present-day Oscar Wilde didn't disappoint. He dwelled only briefly on his salad days, simply commenting after one Smiths song, "However, life goes on." However, his solo work is more than worth the trouble, and at fortysomething, he still rocks better than most. "I'm not as skinny as I used to be," he commented, shortly after flinging his shirt into the audience, "but neither are you." Actually, the crowd was surprisingly diverse, proving The Mozzer's universal appeal (he has a large Hispanic following in the US).
