Happy 53 To Guitar Legend… JOHNNY MARR!



JOHNNY MARR was undoubtedly the electrifying pulse and soulful guitar genius of the unforgettable THE SMITHS (1982-1987). After their split he created some magic sparks with ELECTRONIC, his sparkling hobby project with Bernard Sumner (Joy Division / New Order) while being also the glimmering guest/studio guitarist for many great artists such
as Bryan Ferry, The The, Modest Mouse, The Pretenders and more before starting finally a solo career a couple of years ago with debut LP The Messenger (2013) followed a year
later by Playland. The exceptional musician was born John Martin Maher on 31 October
Bring on the champagne and let’s celebrate the man’s birthday with three gems…
