He’s rightly chuffed about his cracking new solo album but, a quarter of a century after The Smiths’ break-up, Johnny Marr remains testy about those never-ending reunion rumours...
Next August will mark the 25th anniversary of the break-up of The Smiths. Given that that’s five times the number of years the seminal UK band actually played together, it’s hardly surprising that founding member Johnny Marr gets a little peeved at being endlessly asked about the possibility of them reforming. After all, the fact that they turned down a reported $10 million to play a short North American comeback tour a few years ago should be answer enough.
The Messenger is available now via Warner Music. Johnny Marr plays the Academy, Dublin on March 27.
