Magazine, Manchester Apollo 23/4/1979

Huge thanks to Melanie Smith of Mud Kiss Photography for letting me share these two fantastic photos of Howard taken that Melanie took side of stage at Manchester Apollo 23rd of April 1979.  This was the gig Magazine had Simple Minds as support.

Melanie told me that her friend took unwell at the gig and got pulled onto the stage then waited for Melanie backstage.

When Melanie got there after the show Howard was with his manager and Sarah Brightman (Of Hot Gossip fame).

Melanie took the picture you can see below of Howard signing an autograph for an American pen pal who was a huge Magazine fan and Howard said laughing, something along the lines of 'Hope you haven't got my bald patch'.

It's rare to find photos of Magazine and Howard back then and I'm so grateful to Melanie for letting me share these.
