Former The Smiths guitar hero JOHNNY MARR who played also in big bands such as Modest Mouse, The Pretenders, The The, Electronic (with New Order’s Bernard Sumner) and
still rockin’ and rollin’ as a (down to earth) solo star, has a new book out today, named MARR’S GUITARS.
Order info HERE.
It traces Marr’s career from his teenage years to his recent work on the Bond soundtrack. Marr’s Guitars showcases the most significant of his superb collection of electric and acoustic guitars, revealing through them the evolution of his iconic sound and style of playing. Each guitar is identified with a crucial moment, a specific song or a particular sound.
And that’s not all. Marr will launch Spirit Power: The Best Of Johnny Marr, featuring a couple of new tunes on November 3. It celebrates the first ten years of his solo career. New book, new record. It’s gonna be a Marry Christmas this year.
