Johnny Marr Performs Smiths’ ‘How Soon is Now?’ with Stones Ronnie Wood
Let’s get this out of the way right now. Johnny Marr is no Morrissey. Singing just isn’t his strong suit, but the man can still wield an ax like he could during his heyday in the 80s.
At the NME Awards last night, Johnny Marr grabbed the Rolling Stone’s Ronnie Wood to help him out with a little song called “How Soon is Now?” While it wasn’t the most stirring rendition your ears will ever hear, it is a pretty cool spectacle to behold nonetheless (check it out in the YouTube video below).
I’d give anything to be a fly on the wall when Morrissey finds out about Marr dusting off their classic to parades out for the awards show. Yeah that Smiths reunion is never, and I mean, never happening.
