    There's an excellent interview with Johnny Marr by the always brilliant Karin Giannone that's been shown on BBC World News.

    The long version:



    The short version:



    There should be a 20 minute version of the interview posted soon.

    After chatting to Karin Giannone @KarinBBC for an interview with BBC World News he picked up a guitar and played This Charming Man. You can see this moment of magic on Karin's Twitter feed.

    You can watch Johnny Marr speak frankly and honestly about Morrissey, The Smiths and much, much more in this 26 minute unedited BBC interview, that's not being broadcast anywhere else.

    Hi Kenmare,
    Thanks so much for your response.
    I was lucky enough to be at the filming and he couldn't have been kinder or more accommodating.
    I think the full interview is probably a lot more interesting for fans than the shorter versions cut with music that have to be made with a wider audience in mind.
    I hope I'm right otherwise I've wasted a lot of people's time.
    Cheers,
    John

    "He's decided to reveal all, in his debut book, Set The Boy Free.

    He's been telling Smiths fan Mike Hall why he decided to write his side of the story now."

    The above couldn't be further from the truth. It seems that the media isn't capable of writing something about an autobiography without using the words "reveals all" or "sets the record straight".
