Opinions on Johnny Marr?

So recently I've been getting into Johnny Marr, the legendary 'Smiths' guitar player.
His chord structures, colorful riffs and EPIC TONE have really started inspiring me.

Just wanted to know what UG users thought of him, especially users outside the UK. Perhaps people in the US would know him better for his role in the rock band 'Modest Mouse'

So Pit, What do you think of him?

Haha, The Smiths are as well known as Modest Mouse in the U.S. (except maybe that is a little dependent on the age of who you are asking)....I personally love everything I've heard that Johnny Marr has been involved with, but a lot of people think of him like an 'indie' artist or something and don't really like him.

You must have heard the track in this video from 0:32-1:10



This guy pretty much dominated the UK in the 80's

That's awesome I didn't know how well received The Smiths were over your way especially since they had such a short career. But yeah Johnny's the man what he did with The Cribs was also brilliant.

I agree Morrissey is an idiot and only getting worse... However the Morrissey-Marrs duo can only be considered as amazing, just imagine what they'd have accomplished if The Smiths lasted longer

I'm so tempted to start taking pictures of the meat I eat, posting it on Twitter and hashtagging it #morrissey.

Musician's personalities has no bearings on whether or not their music is good.

Smiths are good Morrissey is a douche. That's like an undisputed fact.

Morrissey's a monumental bellend but he does write some beautiful lyrics.

And Marr's my favourite guitarist ever.

That's not the point I was making. What I was trying to say is imagine if they continued making albums together. The legacy they'd have left would be even more incredible than what they've already achieved together.

I was not making a judgement about the music based on those who made it.

I really don't care about him or the Smiths.

It's cool that some people like the Smiths and Johnny Marr; I don't. That's also cool.

Not liking Johnny Marr is definitely not cool

But know I get you, it's understandable, some of their stuff can be pretty tailored to specific tastes. Three years ago The Smiths were horrible to my ears
