He also seems like a good bloke. Though he has fallen into the Paul Weller trap of thinking it’s perfectly fine to have the same terrible mod haircut well into his 50s.That was always the case, though. I'm old enough to remember the Smiths when they were fresh and new and anyone who liked them for their music (and not Mozza's gladiola waving camp pageantry) knew that Marr was the real talent. That talent has stood the test of time too. The opening bars to this tune still sound absolutely fecking amazing.
