HEY, it’s Johnny Marr’s birthday! Still a young man at 51, still totally rockin’.
Johnny Marr is my guitar hero and a total musical genius. It seems that some people are under the misapprehension that The Smiths could’ve done fine without him. That it was all Morrissey. If someone ever says that to you, please slap or stab them.
A couple years ago I would’ve said he needs more recognition but he’s gotten that in spades lately.
Johnny Marr also shares a birthday with my sister Emily. Alan’s sister shares a birthday with Morrissey. Isn’t that WACKY? I think it’s wacky. Anybody else? No? Ok.
