Okay, let’s get this straight to begin with: The Smiths were a great rock band. Label them ‘Indie’ or even ‘pop’ if you like but they could certainly rock.
A lot of rock and metal fans will probably stop reading here but give me a minute to explain. Johnny Marr is a god amongst men when it comes to playing guitar and he’s also a clever, funny and generous guy with a social conscience too. When David Cameron declared his love for The Smiths back in 2010, Marr responded via Twitter, “..no you don’t, I forbid you to like it.”
