    I agree that johnny marr was the most important member of the smiths. Without Marr its debatable if morrisssey would have ever made it in the music industry.
    I wasnt overly impressed by mozza's bio.. it worked in some places..though the court case seemed to drag on forever, but he is obviously an immensely talented lyric writer. The way he put the words and melodies to marrs music is a form of genius...
    They were both great - but the reason i got into the smiths all those years ago was because of Marr and his guitar... for other people i know - morrissey is the reason they loved the smiths.
    You're also correct about the shafting of rourke and joyce.. there shouldnt have ever been any need for a court case. They should have got a higher percentage.

    Yes. And they are wrong. I know it is a cliché but nobody is without flaws so neither is Johnny Marr or if I may dare to say so our beloved Moz :o

    But for me Johnny Marr is such a great guitar player and I can't believe he is not a very kind and nice human being and he does what he can, which is a lot, see the other thread.

    And I noticed his voice is getting better in a relative short timeframe since he decided starting to sing.
    I reckon he puts a lot of effort in rehearsing and improving his singing techniques. Good for him and for his fans! :thumb:

    Since you did not read the first comment, I very much doubt you read the second.
