Actually, I’m now just wondering who the other contestants in line were to win this? Or did they pick from a hat?

:unsure::unsure::unsure:
Boss pick musicians themselves - they award it to musicians that have continually used their equipment whilst being seen to promote guitar playing/learning etc.
I forget which article, but: Andy Summers, Steve Vai, and Yngwie Malmsteen were previous winners.

Yeah was just looking that up, only found two videos, assume it’s a fairly new award.


So I guess Marr has achieved as much as Vai during his life ? ...

I mean I don’t really understand how Boss measures someone else’s
achievements, and chooses one over another.

In 2019....

‘Roland and BOSS Present Lifetime Achievement Award in Education to Randall Faber!’


And they give more than just one a year .....

‘Following the 2020 Roland International Press Conference, held Wednesday, January 15, 2020, in advance of The NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, Roland and BOSS presented their fifth-annual Lifetime Achievement Awards to the incredibly versatile, successful drummer, Omar Hakim (Roland), and the world-renowned Swedish guitarist, Yngwie Malmsteem (BOSS), both of whom have incredible careers spanning over 40 years.’

I can assure you that nobody from Morrissey’s present band made the short list.

you could be right, I don’t know or think they even use Boss pedals, or have used the Boss brand continually as a part of their sound.

Boz did a few Roland/Boss Youtube videos a few years back. Here's one:


Boz is funny, he messes up his riff straight off - I would have gone for another take!

An interesting thing in Johnny's BOSS video, that the fellow from Steely Dan pointed out, is that Johnny is known as the master of the GT1000 multi-effects processor. This takes the place of a huge pedal board like one that Boz is using in this video. The effects are programmed in and with a tap of a foot pedal, they can be called up during a performance.

Is it an award or an advert?
It’s both. There’d be no award, without the advert. That’s how they pay for the trophies Just like the Brits, Grammies, Junos and Melvis’ favourite - The legends of Polish Sausage Twisting. ...except nobody but Melvis wants a PST coil.

The awarding is the advert.

I’m sorry, but why would you say or think that’s interesting?

A list? Are you looking for Melvis to rate on a list? Have you tried the frozen food section at the grocery store, ElevatorClassics.com or the Polish charts?

Stick to your Eurovision and Britain’s Got Talent shit, if you’re looking for a karaoke death squad, kiddo.

...and maybe have a gander at the video.

You gonna start smack-talking Skunk Baxter, in your emoji-laden, broken English now?

...because - like me - the person who posted that has a breadth and depth of musical interest and knowledge that transcends “You’re the one for me, Fatty”?

Pretty simple, really - if you’re able to pull your head from up the man-child’s arse.

If you are a music fan interested in the performance of music, it really is an advance in how a guitarist and singer performs on stage. It automates the process of the sound of the guitar by stepping on a pedal. For instance, if you want a chorus sound for a verse and then a more reverby sound for a solo, you do it by memorizing the pedal settings. For Johnny, he says it helps him maintain eye contact with the audience - something that's important to him as a performer.
