He's simply an excellent guitar player who has no business singing or being a frontman. His voice and stage presence are equally vapid. And without the Smiths you've probably never heard of him.
Oh, the irony


That being said, his guitar playing on The The’s Mind Bomb record is something I wish he was doing now. Though that has more to do with what Matt was giving him, the foundation, the type of songs to be creative on, and the drugs they were doing at the time. Lol.

Again, I believe Johnny has done and can only do his best work when he works with frontmen that have a deeper (darker?) vision.

And there were two.
I don't mean this in bad taste but can you imagine if Johnny had worked with Ian Curtis? If Ian hadn't died.
