Johnny Marr - Guitar Prostitue

Thanks to my inside sources in the radio industry, I found out that everyone's favorite alternative guitar slinger is off to join another established band. This time the whiney bastards cast in the mold of The Smiths themselves, Modest Mouse.

For the record Johnny has been a member of the following bands (only major bands are listed):
The Smiths
The The
Johnny Marr & The Healers

And he has contributed his talents to the following bands (not a comprehensive list):
Talking Heads
Kirsty MacColl
Pet Shop Boys
Billy Bragg
Everything But the Girl
Tom Jones
The Cult
Beth Orton
The Pretenders

For the most part he tends to make good choices. Just a little tip, don't bother with his solo album. He is definitely a colaborater not an innovater. This does bode well for Modest Mouse, though.
