    [quote:dc346e6722]The legendary guitarist - whose career has taken him from the Smiths, through Electronic to, most recently, Modest Mouse - has been announced as Salford's new professor of music. Not just an honorary title, Marr's responsibilities will include hosting workshops on the composition and performance of popular music.[/quote:dc346e6722]
    Caught the end of this on the radio this morning, if anyone's interested.

    Does he think he can help them get through their exams?

    Sorry.

    Ho ho, etc.

    What's he going to teach? How to form one of the worst bands of all time? (Johnny Marr and the Healers, in case anyone was wondering)

    Has he quit The Cribs? He's a man who has aged spectacularly.

    Maybe I'm missing a subtle point, but hasn't he been at this for a while now?

    Yes, but if you consider that Johnny Marr is 45...

    Ian Brown is also 45...

    And Noel Gallagher is 41....

    ...and Johnny Marr has been releasing music since 1983.

    Fair play to him, I say.

    Actually that sounded like I meant he has aged badly, I meant quite the opposite! Possibly my favourite guitarist too.
