Johnny Marr has said that he’s still great pals with every single one of the many people he’s been in bands with over the years.

Oh, “except for the obvious one”.“It’s a simplistic way of putting it, but one of the reasons I’ve been in so many bands was because I wanted to be loyal to them”, Marr tells Uncut. “It won’t come as any surprise when I say that I’m really close with everyone I’ve worked with – except for the obvious one.

And that isn’t that much of a surprise because we’re so different, me and Morrissey. But all of these different musicians, I can pick up the phone to any one, and just pick up from where we left off”.After leaving The Smiths in 1987, Marr went on to join numerous other bands, including The Pretenders, The The, Electronic, 7 Worlds Collide, Modest Mouse and The Cribs.“Everyone I’ve worked with has been great”, he goes on. “The only thing that turned to shit was The Smiths.

Which is a shame, but shit happens. I hate talking about the group I formed in those terms, the group I loved. But, you know, let’s get some perspective”.So, yes, I think we can add that to the list of statements made over the years by Marr to the effect that The Smiths will never ever get back together.

I had them when I was younger after having three children and they just emptied out and I thought, ‘I need a little implant.’“They lasted for so long and they were great, but all of a sudden I looked in the mirror one day and thought, 'If I don’t go for this before I’m 60, I’ll never have the guts to do it.'"Carol went on to explain to the ITV panel how she wants to "feel confident" when she looks in the mirror and decided: "If I don't do it now, I'll never do it."The star is soon to be a grandparent as her eldest daughter Jess and her son Josh are soon to both be parents.She said: “I was embarrassed to let the children know but when I spoke to the girls, they agreed.

Jay-Z, Meek Mill and more push for law that would stop New York prosecutors using rap lyrics as evidence
Jay-Z, Meek Mill, Big Sean and more have united to support a proposed New York state law that would limit prosecutors’ ability to use defendants’ rap lyrics as evidence of alleged crimes.As Rolling Stone reports, the rap giants have added their names to a letter calling on lawmakers to pass Senate Bill S7527 – which was first revealed in November and which passed through the Senate Codes committee earlier this week – into state law. Others who have signed on to the letter include Fat Joe, Kelly Rowland and Killer Mike.The bill, brought forward by Democrat senators Brad Hoylman and Jamaal Bailey and assembly member Catalina Cruz, would limit a defendant’s music or other “creative expression” being shown to a jury in criminal trials, requiring prosecutors to provide “clear and convincing evidence” that that expression is “literal, rather than figurative or fictional”.Highlighting the disparity between rap lyrics being used as evidence with other forms of expression, Hoylman provides two examples – no one, he says, believes Johnny Cash “shot a man in Reno just to watch him die“, nor that David Byrne is a “psycho killer“.“This is an issue that’s important to [Jay-Z, aka Sean Carter] and all the other artists that have come together to try to bring about this change.
