Thread: Guess who Johnny Marr's favourite guitarist is.

    Guess who Johnny Marr's favourite guitarist is.

    I'll give you a hint: Miles Davis tried to poach him from Tony Williams, but failed. Never in a million years would I have suspected that Johnny Marr of all people would be into "playing like your pants are on fire" music.

    Marr has previously talked about how his playing style in The Smiths was deeply influenced by Bert Jansch.

    I was going to say Jansch. In the recent (and terrific) Bert at the BBC box (8Cds), Johnny Marr guests on a few tracks. It's easy to hear why he is so fond of Jansch...and for fans of the guitarist, this BBC box is truly essential...some absolutely fabulous performances, some solo, others with groups including people like Albert Lee.
