His ringing arpeggios and chordal innovations helped elevate The Smiths to be one of the most influential and important British bands of all time.

Each guitar is identified with a crucial moment, a specific song or a particular sound, and each embodies a key aspect of Marrs lifelong passion. Renowned photographer Pat Graham presents each instrument as a full portrait, supported by micro shots highlighting the specific details that make each one unique, while Johnny Marr himself reveals in his accompanying commentary on what tracks and at which shows the guitars were played. Many of the guitars are closely associated with Marr, such as the Rickenbacker 330, the Gibson ES-355 and the Johnny Marr Signature Fender Jaguar. Some were passed down to him, including Nile Rodgers Stratocaster, Bryan Ferrys Roxy Music Hagstrom and Bert Janschs Yamaha. Others are guitars once owned by Marr that have since been passed on to the next generation of guitar heroes, including the Stratocaster used by Noel Gallagher on Wonderwall and the Gibson Les Paul Goldtop used on In Rainbows by Radioheads Ed OBrien. Punctuating the photography of the guitars and the accompanying commentary are contextual studio, backstage and onstage shots. Together, they make Marrs Guitars a unique cultural history of modern music and guitar playing told through the prism of Johnny Marrs experiences and achievements.

    En mycket trevlig bok att bläddra i som musikintresserad och fan av Herr Marr's karriär.
    Inoniska instrument som kopplas till specifika låtar är ju en dröm för en Smithsnörd.
