    After a trip up to the venue last night, I noticed there are plenty of bus routes that go near the venue (beyond the two mentioned above). Here's a TfL link: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/gettingaround/maps/buses/pdf/childshill-13445.pdf From Golders Green, it's only a 2 min bus journey...

    How often do you play your instrument?

    After reading the tags on this thread, I'm not sure how I should answer this ;) I try and play guitar every day, even if it's for 10-15 mins. If I'm planning on practising for an hour or so, I normally play my bass for 10 mins to warm my hands up - I don't know why, but I find that playing...

    What instrument do you play, and how did you get started?

    Stuck in an elevator with a member from the smiths

    What are your favorite guitarists?

    How did I miss out Joey Santiago on my list?! He's my kind of player - what he plays always adds to the song and he's proof that you don't need to belt out 100 notes a second to be an influential player. And I'd also like to add Jeff Buckley to my list.

    Is Morrissey still the role model he once was to you?

    Morrissey has developped as an artist, and I agree with the earlier comment that he sings (and should sing) about his life - the fact that people find something about themselves in his work and connect to it is a by-product (as with any artist). This is why Morrissey is so well-respected. There...

    Songs Morrissey should cover

    I've been thinking about this for days! How about 'Ever Fallen In Love' by The Buzzcocks?

    The Jeremy Kyle Show

    So have the people posting on this thread managed to get through an entire show without turning off/switching over? I managed to watch about 5 mins of a show a few weeks ago - I still want those 5 mins back :lbf:

    Agreed - I'm afraid I switched this vid off after about 10 seconds and watched a proper live Smiths vid on Youtube.
