Johnny Marr!  The man who is responsible for all the great and iconic guitar licks you hear in the music of The Smiths is in New York this week promoting his really awesome solo record “The Messenger.”  Johnny Marr’s list of accomplishments doesn’t stop there as he was also a member of Electronic (featuring New Order’s lead singer Bernard Sumner), The Cribs, The The and Modest Mouse.  He was also awarded NME’s Godlike Genius Award earlier in 2013 and it’s so well deserved.  You’d think with this impressive career, Marr would take after one of his ex-Smiths bandmates and not be that nice, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Johnny Marr is a super cool guy who was happy to talk to fans and sign autographs.  What a class act!  Thanks so much for being so cool Johnny and I can’t wait to see you in concert tomorrow night!
