I've been browsing and wanted to say hello. I'm in my 40's and live in Philadelphia. I grew up on punk music and, tragically, only found out quite recently what I had missed out on by never having given The Smiths or Morrissey a chance. It is a bit depressing for me to think of all the years of pleasure I missed out on, but better late than never, I suppose. The strangest part of the story may be the unlikely and indirect manner in which I was finally turned on to this music - via a Smiths tribute band that I randomly went to see at a club. I don't know what your opinion may be of tribute bands, but the point is that I was blown away by the music and I am now collecting every CD I can get my hands on of The Smiths or Morrissey.
