The first concert I ever went to was The Smiths at Brixton Academy on Friday March 1 1985,
Three days before my 16th birthday.
The first song they sang was 'William it was really nothing'
Not a bad debut eh?
In the song Morrissey tells a suburban male that ''it was really nothing....... it was your life''. And somehow that has always come over to me as a very liberating and reassuring statement.
Nice to have it confirmed by another Steven (Bruggeman).
