JOHNNY MARR Plays SMITHS Classic For Foo Fighter TAYLOR HAWKINS

Now watching

Last Sunday Johnny Marr played in Cardiff, Wales. To pay tribute to Taylor Hawkins,
the Foo Fighters’ drummer who passed away March 25 at the age of 50, he played
a classic he wrote with Morrissey for his former band The Smiths.

Before going into There Is A Light That Never Goes Out Marr said: “This is a song
that we’d like to dedicate to our friend Dave Grohl. Lots of love going out to you guys and
all the Foos family. We miss you Taylor, we won’t ever forget you. God bless you. This is
from all of us.”

Marr:“There’s a set of influences and a very broad sound that I’ve been
developing – really since getting out of The Smiths until now, and I hear
it in this record. There are so many strands of music in it. We didn’t do

very satisfied that I’ve been able to harness it.”
