    If you’ve ever listened to The Who’s epic live cover of Young Man Blues and never got sexually aroused at least once when you heard it, then you’re a liar.

    Railway Hotel (Wealdstone)
    August 11, 1964

    The story behind why Roger was wearing the sunglasses:

    Just before a concert at the Railway Hotel, Roger’s father-in-law punched him in the face: “Roger’s father-in-law suddenly appeared just as they were about to go on, and dragged Roger outside and hit him. You see, Roger was the only one that was married, but I got the feeling that it wasn’t a very happy marriage. I think he was trying to get out of it“ - Chris Downing (musician)

I had to slow down the speed of the video four times in order to capture his technique properly. So imagine John Entwistle playing four times faster then what you see here and that’s how fast he usually played.

    Winner All Right - Johnny Marr Live at Leopardstown Racecourse, Dublin - Thursday 7th August 2014

    I am sure there are loads of connections between horse racing and music but other than the excellent ‘Chips Ahoy' by The Hold Steady I can't think of any. So it was a bit strange for my last night to be Leopardstown Racecourse with the purpose of seeing one of the legends of British alternative music Johnny Marr. In order to embrace the surroundings I watched the last three races and even put bets on. I can state, without exaggeration, my selections came last in every race, some by some distance.

    With the last race finishing around 20:40 we had plenty of time to grab a good spot for the gig. Just after 21:00 Johnny & his three band-mates hit the stage and blasted the very merry crowd with giddy ‘Upstarts’ from his album the messenger. The thumping tom drums & slide guitar signaled the way for ‘Panic’ which has the greying, be-quiffed crowd dancing like it was 1986 all over again. After a dizzying run through ‘The Right Thing Right’ we were treated to a second Smiths songs in the form of ‘Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before’. As I think I said we I reviewed his Academy gig last year there is something magical about seeing Johnny playing a Smiths number, even thought he wasn’t the original singer. I guess they are all his songs as much as they are Morrissey’s.

    After a shout out to his cousins from Kildare and a change to a red Fender Jaguar, we got a good run of solo songs including an outing for the new single ‘Easy Money' off his forthcoming album 'Playland'. After taking his jacket off and revisiting the sublime 'Bigmouth Strikes Again' we got two more new songs in the form of 'Candidate' & 'Boys Get Straight', the later of which was definitely the strongest of the new bunch tonight. Of course Johnny's back catalogue is not just The Smiths, so to remind us he gave us a sparser version of Electronic's 'Getting Away With It' replete with a long guitar work out at the side edge of the stage. We could debate all night what is the best Smiths song but most people would agree 'There Is a Light That Never Goes Out'  is definitely a contender. As a result I don't think there was a quiet voice in the arena when the band turned it into one massive sing along before the left the stage.

    While it was pretty hard to top that, Johnny returning alone to pick his way through the intro to ‘Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want’ was a good start. The band eventually joined in and Johnny replicated the mandolin solo on his green Jag. After a blast through ‘Lockdown’ and an adrenalin fueled cover of ‘I Fought The Law’, the distinctive tremolo guitar into of ‘How Soon Is Now’ signaled the beginning of the end of ninety minutes of ebullience, which struck the perfect balance between nostalgia and fresh new music.

  11. We arrived at the venue, and there was the wrong drum kit, and Morrissey went to the microphone and got an electric shock, and we said, ‘Look, we’re not even going to play this gig.’ So then we went back to the hotel and then the police came and our passports were taken off us, and they said we couldn’t go home until we played the concert. And all the press were outside, and we were having to hide in rooms.
