Some kid kept holding up a sign at Johnny's gig in Exeter last night, asking to play guitar on This Charming Man. Marr got a bit annoyed at first, but he got his wish in the end - any chance we could get this kid to do the same thing at a Moz show and replace Jesse on this song? Might be an improvement! :p

Great job, George! Not sure why Johnny felt the need to be such a dick to him at first, though.

Well, I suspect part of it was winding him up, but to be fair it was pretty annoying have this kid in the front row holding up this sign for several songs, yelling out his request, then finally throwing his sign on top of Johnny's pedal board when he wouldn't acknowledge him. It's a bit like when you get those annoying twats at Moz shows demanding he plays 'There is a Light' between every song, and they just wont shut up.

But still - cool for all involved in the end. Though afterwards Johnny did say something like 'anyone watching this on youtube, this isn't the start of a trend'. Now that's been edited out of the video, the poor bastard is probably going to turn up to 20 different people waving signs begging to play next gig! :lbf:
