Excerpt:

"HE CHANNELED HIS FAVORITE SONGWRITERS.

“I often reference someone like Morrissey when I’m writing about relationships because he looks at love from such a peculiar angle. Who else writes a lyric like, ‘The more you ignore me, the closer I get’? You just go, ‘Oh, my God -- is this guy reading my mind?’ For me, I’m always looking at lyricists like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell. Morrissey I would put in that category, though some people may balk at that. And Marc Bolan as well. He was one of the great surrealists.”

JOHNNY MARR’S LOS ANGELES ~ AN L.A. TACO EXCLUSIVE WITH THE LEGENDARY SMITHS GUITARIST.

Excerpt:

"A big moment that still stands out for Marr were the two nights in 1986 when The Smiths played at the now-defunct Universal Amphitheater. He writes about these shows in his autobiography: “The first night in LA was attended by some celebrities, and Joe Dallesandro, the cover star on our first album, came to meet us backstage. The Smiths’ shows in L.A. were always an event.”

Over thirty years later and sitting not too far from where it happened, Marr remembers this moment well and identifies its greater cultural significance: “We liberated straight boys,” he tells me."
