Watch: Johnny Marr Performs The Smiths’ Classic “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want”

Johnny Marr performed “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” Friday night. This is a beautiful version.

This new one, “Generate! Generate!,” off Marr’s album,The Messenger is pretty good. It’s growing on me. Cool guitar.

Touché Morrissey, Johnny Marr To Tell His Side Of The Smiths’ Story

Johnny Marr says he’s got his own publishing deal for an autobiography, Brooklyn Vegan reports. In an interview with the music blog Marr said:

There is gonna be one, yeah. I’ve had so many offers and so many people advising me that my story is worth it, but I understand it’s something that I have to do. I’ll do it in the next couple of years. I’m into from the stance that I want it to be so thorough that I don’t make a record or tour whilst I was doing it. It is gonna happen, and I’ve already made an agreement with a publisher for it, so I will get it done.

Meanwhile, Putnam Books will publish Morrissey’s Autobiography in the US in a hardback edition on December 3, 2013. The book, published in October of this year in the UK, is a major hit, selling 35,000 copies during it’s first week and topping Amazon’s UK bestsellers chart.

You know how Keith Richards is an amazing guitarist (duh), but not so good in the vocals department?

Well, same goes for Johnny Marr, the brilliant and onetime guitarist for The Smiths.

Check out this video for confirmation. The song isn’t so hot either. And the guitar playing? What do you tnink?
