Here's a another one bugging me and seeing there is a "market" for such topics :)...

As a musician, always wondered how did The Smiths do "How soon is now" on the 1985 tour? As heard on the "Same Day Again" bootleg, the slide part is played by - whom or what? There was no Craig Gannon at this point, and to my knowledge Mike Joyce never played along click, so I wonder how could they sync any sort of playback device.

I had hoped someone addresses this to Johnny on his current book tour...

It was a sampler triggered by Johnny using a foot-pedal. It was the same thing on the QID tour, but with a better sample.
