Johnny Marr Biography - Eminent Alt-Rock Hero
The new wave 'miserablist' band The Smiths burst on the music
scene in 1982, offering a completely original sound that captivated the nation. The band purveyed a distinctive blend of angry
punk rock, peppered with elements inspired by 1960s girl bands and singers like Dusty Springfield and Marianne Faithfull.
Morrissey and Marr combined their songwriting talents to pen timeless songs like 'This Charming Man' and 'How Soon Is Now?'
- influencing a generation of disaffected youth with their marvellous kitchen sink melodies.
In 1987, the illustrious
guitarist left The Smiths shortly after the release of their last album Strangeways, Here We Come. He went on to become
a session guitarist, lending his superb guitar skills to modern alternative rock outfits like Modist Mouse and The Cribs.
He surprised his colossal fan base in 2013 when he opted to go it alone and release his debut solo album, The Messenger,
which was met with flawless reviews from the music press. Purchase Johnny Marr tickets now at StubHub UK and this highly influential
