What a great 'read' this is. A unique and magnifying tour inside Johnny Marrs life and mind guided by himself and in his own words and voice. It gives an honest and thorough insight to his professional life and career, and also a great perspective on his musical achievements that started with the Smiths and has stayed curios and vibrant ever since. A must read for music lovers!
Loved it. Straight talking storytelling from Johnny Marr, reminiscing about his time in all these great bands. Finally hearing his side of the Smiths story.
A man who has stuck to his principles his whole career and continues to deliver fresh music to this day.

Enigmatic jaunt through an interesting life in music. Prior to this, I thought Damon Albarn was king of collaborations....yet, Johnny has immensely wide ranging projects and partnerships. Lovely to hear details on developing the creative process on iconic smiths songs. It gave a great insight into the humility and humanity of Johnny and his belief and pursuit of musical inspiration. It avoids the bile and hubris of Morrissey's rather disappointing autobiography. If you're deciding which account of The Smiths to commit to, go for this. Fabulous.
From the crofts to the clubs and the sounds of Manchester. a great read for anyone who grew up in that era. There is a light that never goes out
