      Thanks for posting. So cool that Johnny can still talk with excitement about the Smiths songs, as if they were written yesterday.I enjoyed it.

      I can hear it. Listened to both Bowie songs and then some Chic and I get it. Love learning the backstories.

      The entire video was posted at least a month ago. Where have you been? These redundant posts aren't going to make up for your other toxic bullshit.

      Love it.
      "I fucked that up, the 'one night that he left the house' was the punchline!"

      Most of the story was familiar to me, but I loved hearing him play 'This Night Has Opened My Eyes'! :guitar:

      But more importantly, you need to find a person with an original mind, voice, and vision
      to turn those guitar tunes into music history.

      not so easy.

      Add being a very engaging speaker to the list of Johnny's many talents! He also spoke at the Great Escape Festival and the Cannes Lions Festival of International Creativity this past summer.

      But Jesse has been playing Marr riffs every night for the past fourteen years. Surely Marr's genius would rub off on him, right?

      I ye reckon what a load of bull ox cunt tit thick wacker bull ox. I reckon the California Son should sue this foreigner Brit piece of shit for defamation. Stay up in Portland, Oregon overrated guitarist. Stop coming down here to Moz Angeles every six months pretending you are looking for a place near Uncle Steve. You could never afford LA.

      Hand in Glove where it started and ended, still one of the best singles in that creative early period. Stands the time easily.

      The Smiths were the coming together of a musical genius and a lyrical genius. And Mike and Andy. Now Moz just has a band.

      I wish I had the ability to listen to The Smiths for the first time all over again.

      Indeed. However, if you listen to "World Peace..." continuously for, say 3 three weeks, and then put on The Queen is Dead, *IMO* its a close second.

      Hand in Glove would probably be nothing but muical cramness without Morrissey's lyrics and vocal melodies.

      I'd never heard it before. I've heard the story of Hand in Glove several times but something about seeing Johnny act it out with such excitement ("I had my legs up", "Moz, listen!") just had me beaming. Imagine getting a knock on the door and standing there in your socks whilst you're gifted Hand in Glove. Surreal.
