Originally aiming for a football career, the fledgling Marr - born John Maher in 1963 - played in bands in and around Manchester
from his early teens. A much mythologised meeting with singer Morrissey proved to be a career turning point, as the pair opted
to form The Smiths and reshaped and redefined British rock in the early '80s. Marr's distinctive guitar sound, inspired by
legends such as Chuck Berry, was utilised to glorious effect on singles such as 'Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now' and 'How
Soon Is Now' before the group split in 1987.
From then on, his activities comprised collaborations and session work, including stints with The Pretenders, The The and
New Order spin-off Electronic. Keen to be the key player in his own band again, the early '00s saw him form new group the
Healers, who supported Oasis at a number of stadium gigs and released 2003 LP Boomslang.
Enjoying an Indian summer in his career in his 40s, a rejuvenated Marr went on to join The Cribs in 2007, recording acclaimed
album Ignore the Ignorant and playing live with the Yorkshire trio. After opting to go solo again, 2013 sees this celebrated
musician release his debut solo album The Messenger - and Johnny Marr tickets are proving popular with fans old and
new all over again. Buy yours on StubHub UK today!
