    Johnny Marr - Lifetime Achievement.

    "As one of the founding members of The Smiths, Johnny Marr was responsible for reinventing guitar music for a new generation. And since then, it’s perhaps easier to list the artists he hasn’t collaborated with rather than the ones he has – no joke, there’s an entire Wikipedia page devoted to it, from Bryan Ferry to Paul McCartney, Talking Heads to The Pet Shop Boys."


    Johnny Marr vows to never retire as he picks up GQ Award.

    "The former Smiths guitarist said it would be a waste of his famous haircut if he were to call it a day in the music industry."


    UPDATE Sep. 7:

    Video of acceptance speech posted by Zoinks:

    He did thank the other Smiths. To be fair, I think if he mentioned Morrissey by name in this crowd, it might have gotten some boos.

    Boy, does Kylie seem to really like him!

      I thought that Muslims don't drink alcohol? At least strict Muslims don't drink alcohol.

      The local pub means the pub which is closest to you. It's called your "local" because it is close to where you live. You shouldn't need to drive miles to get to it. Also you can't drink and drive it is against the law in Britain.

      I think it is unusual to be both a Communist and a Muslim. How do you know for sure that Charlie Cheswick (or "Chezz" as you call him) is both a Communist and a Muslim? A lot of Communists are atheists and humanists. Remember what Karl Marx said: "Religion is the opium of the people". The full quote from Karl Marx translates as: "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people". I have heard Communists sometimes refer to Karl Marx as "Daddy Marx" or "Charlie". I guess Karl Marx had a few nicknames. They sometimes call Joseph Stalin "Uncle Joe".

      I didnt name him Chezz thats of his own making "The Chezz" 1 all others 0. "The Chezz strikes again".
      Thats what he used to call himself, may have given it up.

      If he wont the award at the pub it was not at the local pub. His local pub was chock full of Brexit types so he drove many kilometers to find one with Muslims and Commies inside.

      The Muslims he knows dance and drink at the pub. They are similar as the Jews friendly with Mao who all happen to hate Isreal but are not anti Semitic.:rolleyes: Or the farmers he is friendly with that feel tax cuts increase taxes:crazy:

      Commies and Nazis both love Islam.:neutral:

      British people tend to say driving "miles" rather than "kilometers". Your "local" pub should be within walking distance of where you live. Drinking and driving is against the law in Britain. We talk about alcohol in terms of "units" here in the UK.

      Some Muslims don't drink alcohol at all. In general there seems to be a lot of misunderstanding with regards as to what alcohol actually is within the British Muslim community. The misunderstanding is due to the incorrect translation of term the "khamr" (Arabic) to "alcohol" (English). I think that you can get "Halal" alcohol. Alcohol can be used in cooking and in a few products it isn't only for drinking.

      Chezz said that he got his music biz award "locally" so I'm guessing that he didn't drive miles to get it.

      I don't know how many true Communists are left in Britain? In my experience they tend to be atheists (no belief in God) or humanists. I guess that they would like to get rid of the British Royal family.

      The Labour Party here in the UK isn't Communist it is just left-wing Socialism. They are into Trade Unions and rights for working-class people. You get the "hard" left which is very left-wing. Then you have the "moderate" left which is more centre-ground like the Liberals. Tony Blair's "New" Labour was more moderate centre-ground.

      What is strange is that a lot of the Labour Party in the UK seem to support Palestine rather than Israel. This doesn't make them Muslims though it just mean that they are pro-Islam.

      I don't remember learning about the Nazi's in Germany being into Islam in World War II. They said that Adolf Hitler had Jewish blood but he wasn't a practicing Jew. There is no way that Adolf Hitler was a true Christian because he wouldn't of done the things that he did!

      Adolf Hitler's religious beliefs have been a matter of debate; the wide consensus of historians consider him to have been irreligious, anti-Christian, anti-clerical and scientistic. In light of evidence such as his fierce criticism and vocal rejection of the tenets of Christianity, his numerous private statements to confidants denouncing Christianity as a harmful superstition, and his strenuous efforts to reduce the influence and independence of Christianity in Germany after he came to power! Hitler's major academic biographers conclude that he was irreligious and an opponent of Christianity. Historian Laurence Rees found no evidence that "Hitler, in his personal life, ever expressed belief in the basic tenets of the Christian church". See link:

      The full quote from the guy who was maybe the father of Communism and who was ethnically Jewish Karl Marx translates as: "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people".

      All that 'scholarly' stuff is Fake News. Its like reading a Skinny post. The fact are like cement:
      Adolf loved Islam he had several Muslim divisions in his service and partnered with the head of the
      "palestinian" authority at the time the Mufti of Jerusalem, who eventually moved to Berlin to exhort against the Jews. Adolf also made a pact with his good buddy at the time, the Pope in Rome. That dont sound like the best way to reduce religion, making pacts with the Pope and having the Mufti and his Divisions brought in. Before there was none of this so actually promoted religion, specially Islam.:cool:

      I believe that Chezz won a local award as in local music scene, not connected to any particular pub nearby. Local music scene, you know, dudes who never been anywhere near a REAL record label.
      The celebration and award ceremony o_O may have taken place in a pub but not the local one, Chezz has stated he abhors his local pubs. Not only the nearest one to his abode but those in the radius of his locality.
      Maybe he scampered from where he inhabited to a different location, the Jihadi section. Dont know possible.:rolleyes:

      Karl Marx was bad drunk. LOL That Kapital stuff makes Scientology look like nuclear science.:lbf:

      I have not heard about Adolf Hitler having a connection to Islam before. I'm confused as to what side Adolf Hitler was really on?- was it Palestine or Israel? I'm guessing from what you say that it was Palestine. As you probably know the Jewish State of Israel was created around 1948 at the end of the Second World War. Adolf Hitler died in 1945.

      What I find intriguing is that Adolf Hitler had Jewish blood yet he hated Jews and had many of them killed in the Holocaust. :tears:

      I have heard about the Roman Catholic church funding the Nazi's before. This wasn't something I learnt in school though! Some think that the Catholic church also funded Islam in the first place. When Islam was first created. Some think it is just a conspiracy theory though about the Catholic church being involved. I don't support the Catholic church at all. I believe that the Roman Catholic church is an apostate church.

      I think that Catholicism is quite big in Croatia.

      I don't think that Adolf Hitler wanted to reduce all religion. Adolf Hitler wanted to specifically reduce Christianity in Germany. He also seemed to have real hatred for Judaism and the Jews as a race. Even though he was partly Jewish ethnically himself.

      The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem is the Sunni Muslim cleric in charge of Jerusalem's Islamic holy places, including the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The position was created by the British military government led by Ronald Storrs back in 1918.

      I didn't know that Chezz doesn't like his local pubs. I find it interesting that he won a local music biz award. By "local" I guess he means in his local area? Maybe Chezz is something of a celebrity in his local area. I didn't know that he has musical talent.

      In Britain we might say a "pint of beer" or "half a pint". We might say a "glass of wine". 'Units' of alcohol is how we measure how much alcohol people consume.

      I don't know much about Karl Marx's personal life. I know that he was ethnically Jewish. He was probably an atheist like a lot of Communists.

      I don't know what that Kapital stuff is?

      What does this mean?: "Before there was none of this so actually promoted religion, specially Islam."

      I still wonder what Moz is up to most of his days when he's not posing with fans or spend time in a studio or a record store.
      I have a feeling he is bored shitless and you can almost see it in the eyes of Damon. I reckon Moz treats Damon like shit and shouts to him "what the fuck can we do now?" as he gets ever increasingly bored.
      Moz once said "I don't loiter" but it seems he's not busy enough to keep himself off the streets and it is sad somehow. Add to that depression and narcissism and always being against the general consensus no matter what the topic and you'll realise that Damon is spending a lot of time with the biggest energy thief the world has ever seen.
      But it is all worth it when Moz feeds him bon-bons and suggests that they should go into the bedroom.

      Thank you for your post Vegan Cro Spirit. I have Googled Adolf Hitler's involvement with Islam and you are right! I found this interesting article "How Nazis courted the Islamic world during WWII" see link: This wasn't something I was taught in school though!

      I'm against the Nazis and Fascism. I'm also against Communism. I'm a Christian but I'm against the Roman Church system. I support the Jewish State of Israel but not violence there on either side. I think that Islamic extremism is an evil force in the world.

      Do you know about the Roman Catholic Church in Croatia? Croatia looks like it is a very beautiful country.

      I don't really know anything about Charlie Cheswick (Chezz). I found out that Charley Cheswick is a fictional character in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest". This might be where he got the name from.

      Yes thats where the "Chezz" got his impulse. That silly movie. Movie based on a book by that hippie who had a bus.:rolleyes:

      The current Commie Pope is a tool of the Serbs. Very annoying. Most Croats pay no attention to his insane ramblings and go about their business as usual.

      All socialists, be of the Commie or Nazi variety hate Jews and love Islam.o_O
      But not even King Nabucco could put them down.:thumb:
