Johnny Marr

Legendary lead guitarist graces the stage

The early '80s weren’t the best of times to be an aspiring guitar player. After the initial roar of punk, British pop music had succumbed to the synthesizer-driven pursuit of new wave. That all changed with Johnny Marr. The legendary lead guitarist rose to prominence after co-writing strum-worthy tunes with Morrissey in English rock outfit The Smiths. Marr’s virtuoso work continued long after thy disbanded and he’s since played with The Pretenders, Modest Mouse, The The, Electronic and The Cribs. With his latest offering, Playland, garnering acclaim, Marr’s is a sobering proclamation: this rock giant is just getting warmed up. Meredith Shelton to join.
