I'm not satisfied with your answer.
Your opinion about Johnny Marr is unfairly lower than avarage.
Some people already pointed out that Johnny went to see Morrissey at the right time which made them instantly brought out each other's talent.
Finally worked out who Bailiff is - it's Broken. A) he knows vast amounts of Moz trivia and B) he's always banging on about Bernard effing Butler!
If Butler is such a genius, why was his solo album (s?) so dire?
And, more recently, why was the Tears album so duff?
He's a vaguely respected producer but, really, producers make very little difference - it's mainly about the songs. Think of the huge variation in quality between Vauxhall, Southpaw and Maladjusted - all produced by Steven Lillywhite.
Well your contribution has been greatly appreciated. Thank you.
er, wrong actually - as someone who saw The Smiths, I have no desire to see them reform.
The question was 'your ideal band for Morrissey' and that is my ideal band.
