Nice tributes from Iggy Pop, Stephen Street, Billy Duffy and tons of others. Johnny talks about some pedals he used in the Smiths, most notably the Boss Chorus pedal giving them a distinct sound. He really seems like a gear nerd who knows how to translate the sounds in his head into music. He's a really rare breed.

Giving an award to someone because they've used your gear is a bit strange.

Who here uses toilet roll?

Well, lucky you!

For you! >>> 🏆

It doesn't matter how hard or easy they are to play, it matters how beautiful they are and that he created them.

Any reason you're so bitter? Looks like Stephen Street, Iggy Pop and many others appreciate Johnny contribution to music.

just being truthful.just you concentrate on the new order thread below,yer mate hooky might get a mention.

Well seeing as you’re a no mark and all the other contributions on the video are from pretty well known people in the music industry, I think I will appreciate their thoughts rather than yours.

most successful songwriting duos are a combination of light and dark, yin and yang. Johnny is clearly a sweet guy and a cool cat. well deserved award.

can you explain what a no mark actually is,its one of those put downs which means nothing.in fact the definition of no in scotland is not,so in future can you call me a not mark.

Which 'almost impossible to play chords' would those be? Do you actually play guitar?

Inspiring others is why he won the award. Do you think those kids on YouTube could teach Jesse Tobias to play Johnny's songs - he's a bit shit?

Well done Johnny boy. :guitar: Tony Visconti popped up in the video too, very nice.
