Johnny Marr: "I’m not a workaholic... I'm just enthusiastic!" (Q340 Preview)

johnnymarrDespite clocking up an impress array of band memberships and collaborations, Johnny Marr has told Q he’s not a workaholic.

The former Smiths, Cribs, Healers, Electronic, Modest Mouse, The The, Prentenders man, who has worked with the likes of Pet Shop Boys, Billy Bragg, Hans Zimmer, Oasis, Brian Ferry and Talking Heads (just to scratch the surface) insists he just enjoys making music.

“I've been called a workaholic but I don't think I'm driven in any negative way,” Marr tells Sylvia Patterson in Q340, out now.

“I'm just enthusiastic. I believe in bands, I believe in music, I believe it's art. I believe, still, there's nothing quite so powerful as an 18 year old with nothing to lose.”
