Photographs are important in the world of music; they capture the soul of the band. All it is is a recorded second of freedom representing what music really is; a reality. They illustrate who the band is and what they want to become. They go down in history and like lyrics to a song they mean something different to everyone; they become personal and symbolic of not just what music is, but what the music is to you.
The Beatles: Sergeant Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sid and Nancy
The Smiths were and still are an inspirational band! Their lyrics and music will forever be remembered and just as they had once wished they have gone down in musical history.
People these days don't give them credit for their effect on music. They were one of the early indie bands~if thats what you want to call it~ but the only thing people want to listen to is new indie rubbish that has no rhythm or purpose. People that listen to good music~ or at least know about good music~ are people who listen to the smiths.
