For this week’s installment of “120 Minutes” Rewind, we turn to this Kevin Seal-intro’d segment on Johnny Marr — “1987’s most controversial and most sought-after guitarist,” Seal proclaims — that aired in the months following the dissolution of The Smiths.
Here, Marr talks about his time in that band, his guitar style, his playing in The Pretenders and his appreciation of The Edge’s signature guitar style. He then wraps it up with an amazing turn of phrase, listing off his favorite pastimes, then adding, “aside from that, I just like to cool out, big style.”
