Happy 60 to Guitar Hero And Down To Earth Rock Star JOHNNY MARR

Singer/songwriter and one of the most inspiring and genial guitarists of his generation JOHNNY MARR was born as John Martin Maher in Manchester on 31 October 1963.

Happy 60 to the musical maestro of indie legends The Smiths (1982-1987).
After playing/collaborating with multiple artists (Bryan Ferry, Chrissie Hynde,
