Johnny Marr (born John Martin Maher; 31 October 1963) is an English songwriter, guitarist, keyboardist, harmonica player, and singer. Marr rose to fame in the 1980s as the guitarist in The Smiths, where he formed a prolific songwriting partnership with Morrissey. Marr has been a member of Electronic, The The, and Modest Mouse. In 2008, he joined The Cribs after touring with them on 2008’s NME Awards Tour.
Marr was born in Ardwick, Manchester, the son of Irish immigrants to England. His parents came from Athy in County Kildare. He attended St Augustine’s RC Grammar School, which then merged with other schools to form a Comprehensive School, St John Plessingtons. Marr had aspirations to be a professional football player, and was approached by Nottingham Forest F.C. and had trials with Manchester City F.C. (which he supports). In an interview with FourFourTwo magazine, Marr said “I was good enough for City, but they didn’t follow up because I was probably the only player out there wearing eyeliner.” He currently resides in Manchester in the United Kingdom with wife Angie, and their children, daughter Sonny and son Nile. Marr has been a vegan since 1985. Read more….
