In honour of his headline spot at City Live: Johnny on Soccer AM in 2004. Nice footwork, Mr Marr! *thumbs-up*

Johnny on Manchester City Football Club’s CityTV a few days ago.

" You’ve got to keep yourself passionate. I think I’m a better guitar player now than I ever was. I get better the more dedicated I am - it’s more and more precious the older I get. I think sometimes you can take things for granted when you’re younger. I’ve never really understood guitar players who say they reach a certain level and stay there. I’ve never understood it at all. I consider the guitar as a multi-faceted machine - that plateau-y way of looking at things is very jaded and defeatist. More importantly, philosophically, it’s a very narrow way of looking at things. I’d have to live a few more lifetimes before I could even contemplate being the guitar player I really want to be. "

- Johnny Marr, 2008.
