Scan of my ticket for The Jesus and Mary Chain’s concert in Paris, France, 15 October 1987 (I was 22 years old). The concert was great but very short. They arrived in late and stayed on stage no more than 45 minutes. Then Jim Reid injured badly someone at the first rank of the audience giving a kick with the microphone stand…and the concert was finished ! going out from the concert hall I remember about great tee-shirts they were selling with a big black star and the words:”Jesus sucks” on it, I still regret I didn’t buy it ;-)
His master’s voice: An illustration by: Luz, showing David Bowie “using” Morrissey as a Microphone. It was at the time when Bowie did a cover of Morrissey’s song: “I know it’s gonna happen someday” written in 1992. From the French magazine: Les Inrockuptibles

Photo by Gilles Decroix (Not credited on the cover) showing Fabrice Colette with a tattoo of a Jean Cocteau’s drawing on his left shoulder. It was first published in the French Newspaper: “Libération” in July 1983 for a special issue about: Jean Cocteau, that’s probably where Morrissey found it…
This is a reproduction of the original photo I found in the French magazine: “Moderne”, (published around 1985)

Scan of my ticket for The Smiths live concert at the Eldorado in Paris, France on May 9th 1984. It’s writing on the top:”Apportez vos fleurs // Bring your flowers”. At the time I was only knowing the song:”This charming man” and I was mad about it. It was my very first concert and it was an amazing one, probably the most impressive I’ve never seen…I was 19.
