“They say never meet your heroes, but I say that went over all right,” said The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers.

“Then Johnny Marr arrived for a version of This Charming Man—35 years after The Smiths’ only Glastonbury show. The song’s familiar jangly riff drew a huge cheer from the crowd,” reported the BBC.

Super stoked to see Johnny Marr make a surprise appearance on Saturday, 29 June 2019, at Glastonbury. They got one of the biggest singalongs of the weekend.

Brandon Flowers, he’s The Charming Man!

Music journalist, writer, radio DJ, socio-political activist, creative industry leader, and a qualified librarian, Rudolf Dethu is heavily under the influence of the punk rock philosophy. Often tagged as this country’s version of Malcolm McLaren—or as Rolling Stone Indonesia put it ‘the grand master of music propaganda’—a name based on his successes when managing Bali’s two favourite bands, Superman Is Dead and Navicula, both who have become two of the nation’s biggest rock bands.
