Johnny Marr Admits Breaking Up The Smiths (A Top Story)
In a wide-ranging interview with RollingStone.com, the guitarist said, "I was the lookout saying, 'Rocks ahead! Rocks ahead!' I had the foresight to see disaster looming – both for the individuals, personally, and the band, professionally. I had a lot of insight and wisdom for a 23-year-old."
Marr, who's been busy overseeing the remastering of eight Smiths CDs just released by Rhino Records, also hinted he wouldn't be averse to a Smiths reunion. "I don't know about the possibility, but what I do know is that I understand how great it would be to make so many people happy," he said. "And the other thing I know is that Morrissey and I are so very different. Those are the only things I know." - more on this story
