I never do like johnny songs. It is surprising that johnny music is not good anymore. The well is dry.

Depends on how you define ‘known to the world’. I believe Morrissey made himself known to the world by being who he is and with the release of his first solo record. The Smiths were just a stepping stone to higher places, and he’s still ridding high!

give a listen ...

Well except that Morrissey disagrees and has said many, many times over that Johnny came into his life at a time when he had given up and was basically a recluse living on Valium and toast. It was Johnny's "boy about town connections" that got them musicians, rehearsal space, managers, clothes, you name it. Without those things Morrissey was just a dreamer in his bedroom. He has talked about this openly, it's not really up for debate is it?

I’m well aware of what Morrissey has said, he likes to play the victim that’s been saved, a damsel in distress.
My point is ... who the hell knows how
it would have turned out if Marr didn’t show up. We could also say they were both damn lucky to be in the right place at the right time, when the smarter folk needed a band like The Smiths they were there to deliver the goods and fill that void.

Yes they both needed each other to make The Smiths work, but I don’t think it’s correct to say, as the anon has said that... Marr gave Morrissey a chance.

Morrissey gave Marr a chance, sized him up and pulled himself together to make it happen.
