Biography

Craig Gannon is an English musician and guitarist, who worked briefly with The Smiths and Morrissey.

Craig Gannon joined The Smiths between March and May of 1986, between the end of their early February shows in Ireland and before the May release of Bigmouth Strikes Again. He was originally recruited to play bass when Andy Rourke was dismissed from the band for a drug addiction. This dismissal was short lived. When Rourke returned to the band, Craig became the second guitarist. His first live show with The Smiths was on 16th July, 1986.

His final live show was on 30th October, 1986 at the Manchester Free Trade Hall. He was dismissed from the band shortly afterwards.

He has since composed music for film and television.
