Johnny Marr wins lifetime achievement award - GQ magazine

Johnny Marr - Lifetime Achievement.

"As one of the founding members of The Smiths, Johnny Marr was responsible for reinventing guitar music for a new generation. And since then, it’s perhaps easier to list the artists he hasn’t collaborated with rather than the ones he has – no joke, there’s an entire Wikipedia page devoted to it, from Bryan Ferry to Paul McCartney, Talking Heads to The Pet Shop Boys."

Johnny Marr vows to never retire as he picks up GQ Award.

"The former Smiths guitarist said it would be a waste of his famous haircut if he were to call it a day in the music industry."

FWD.


UPDATE Sep. 7:

Video of acceptance speech posted by Zoinks:


He did thank the other Smiths. To be fair, I think if he mentioned Morrissey by name in this crowd, it might have gotten some boos.

Boy, does Kylie seem to really like him!

There are many meanings of the swallow tattoo (see above), but one is a gay symbol (Boy George and Marc Almond have them, allegedly) to show your colours, as it were. Plus, this song I think came out around the time he was with Jake, who was into inking fake tattoos on Moz.

This is true. Jake was who I was thinking of with the and soon everyone knew bit. If it was just a tattoo I don’t know what the on his neck part would be about

I reckon John Maher's all "dude, I need to get back home to Portland, Oregon and GQ Brittin wouldn't even pay for a first class flight and shoot some hoops in my backyard basketball court because when I go down to LA and play Steve in the Nike 1:1 B-Ball Championship at the Venice Beach courts, he is going to kick my ass bro.

Hun, the punk era is over. It's okay to like things now.

Beyond that, really, who gives a shit?

Tacky musicians accept awards.... and Johnny Marr.
Marr is buying into that very same corporate tackiness by accepting one.

I thought Marr was an avowed socialist? The last two interviews he gave to the Guardian certainly give that impression.

GQ are part of the mass media who diffuse and reproduce the hegemonic capitalist neoliberalism that redistributes capital from the exploited skint and dead-end job workers to the growing and getting-fatter oligarchic rich.

For a once-member of the Wythenshawe working class it's pretty obscene.

If we do something different or in a different way we continue to develop new neural pathways all our lives.
Emotional intelligence continues to develop the more we meditate and work from our heartspace.
Personal style comes from having confidence and not following trends.
Confidence comes with age and the knowledge that the only competition you are in, is with yourself.
I think Morrissey doesn't give a flying fiddlers what anyone thinks of his trousers, shirt buttons, etc
Personally I like a bit of a peek at the mozzer s chest hair of a Sunday,..
We're talking about two different things but do study it and it is mostly the mental side that only age until 29 or if you like we only mature until that age.

I have one of his shirt buttons and you don't wanna know what I do with it.

Sorry Urbanus but she's defo not an escort whore. They have minimum height requirements for those. Except of course if she's with the Tyrion Lannister agency.

Anyway I think you protest too much, I think you quite like her but are afraid to admit it because you fear it would make you look less manly. Embrace your inner gay man like us all! Free yourself!

In a dream I saw Johnny and Kylie's future single. It will be an REM cover. "Shiny Tiny People".
And it will be of course fa-bu-lous. :cool:
She is exhausting if anything and when MTV was new here in the 80's she was always on and then she never aged and I dunno what kind of anti age drugs she takes but they seem to be working.
Perhaps she eats a newborn baby every morning but I have never liked her cause she has nothing at all to offer me.

Blabbity Blabbity Blah!! Can the hyperbole! Isn't the state of formerly being from the working class the aim of every working class person? He escaped through his talent, brains and sheer will - that's to be celebrated, admired, encouraged. All the sour, no-fun complainers on here are unbelievable. There's only two words:

CONGRATULATIONS JOHNNY!!

So what are your thoughts on Morrissey winning a GQ award and the interviews he has had printed in the magazine?

Id give DramaJ some grief about the leather jacket, like the haters give Moz, but then realized its rented, for the event. Same as that shiny wool suit. GQ paid for it since down on his luck DramaJ has been low on funds since the disastrous CALL THE COMET:drama: CD release. Nobody bought because they heard the clips and thought it was chinese music:china:

Johnny wears a pleather (fake leather) jackets. This is well documented, and he has done so for years. He also wears the CHEATAH model of trainers by Vegetarian Shoes. The trainer is a copy of Adidas trainers.

Honestly, he doesnt wear pleather or real leather. Why? He cant afford it, hes has very little in terms of money.:cry: Hes down and out.
He wears those Japanese vinyl knock offs that Michael Jackson wanna bes wore back in the eighties.
Grabs off Manc flea markets, the poor :handpointright::guardsman::handpointleft:. Shoes are cheap plastic.:flushed:

Totes agree. Johnny Marr may have talent and have contributed to some notable work, but he's not an artist on the level of MORRISSEY.

#GoVegan

@ GQ You forgot to give Morrissey his Lifetime Achievement Award [edited]. Unless you think Marr composed and wrote the lyrics to every Smiths track all by himself?

Now for the hard part: Johnny Marr has recorded nothing of note since The Smiths split. Morrissey however, is still at the top of his game. There is no lyricist alive today that you could compare him to. Don't believe me? Go and listen to World Peace is None of Your Business, and Low in High School.

Same rule applies to Morrissey.

Awards are for Aerosmith.

I remember Noel Gallagher, accepting a similar award and pointing out that Hugo Boss was a nazi and made uniforms for them or words to that effect.
Making a point like that is one way to do it I suppose.
Accepting "honours" from the Queen is when you know someone has sold out.
