Johnny Pretending

After leaving The Smiths Johnny Marr spent time as a Pretender recording this single, which I think had a cover of The Stooges 1969 as the B-side. It's a bit tasteful late 80s but almost anything with Johnny Marr playing guitar on it is worthy of our attention.

As is almost anything with Chrissie Hynde singing on it :)

Funnily enough I put The Pretenders on the Ipod this week and was listening to some of the earlier stuff thinking about it's influence on Marr. You can really here it on some of the first couple of albums.

Thanks, I haven't heard any of the stuff he did with the Pretenders.
