    Did Marr Deserve a Songwriting Co-Credit For The Songs of the Smiths?

    Just going to take a moment to chuckle at how crazy you sound. Where is your evidence? Let's see where he doggedly downplays Rourke, Porter or Street. As far as I've read he's always praised Andy, and he's always given a lot of respect/credit to Porter and Street for their talent as...

    Did Marr Deserve a Songwriting Co-Credit For The Songs of the Smiths?

    Well Johnny wrote William in the back of a van, so there you go! Now give us some examples of songs John Porter wrote for the Smiths. A single chord even.

    Did Marr Deserve a Songwriting Co-Credit For The Songs of the Smiths?

    The way you phrase "that Johnny Marr did in his own right", can you please give an example of something on a Smiths record that he didn't do in his own right?? Johnny was writing songs in F#, open E, open G, open A, he played piano, mandolin and autoharp, he had things capo'ed at the 4th or 5th...

    Did Marr Deserve a Songwriting Co-Credit For The Songs of the Smiths?

    The answer to your question within the context of The Smiths? Morrissey and Marr would get the credit. The industry standard is music+melody+lyrics=songwriting credit. Bass lines, drum parts and even guitar riffs written by a second guitarist may or may not rise to the level of writing...

    Did Marr Deserve a Songwriting Co-Credit For The Songs of the Smiths?

    Not the case? John Porter was a producer, he didn't play or write the guitar parts. When you hear 15 tracks of guitar on This Charming Man, that's all Johnny Marr... a 21 year old at the time. Should George Martin get co-writer credit on Beatles songs? Your premise that all songwriting...

    Hatful Gatefold Photo

    Anyone know a place where the Hatful gatefold photo from glastonbury has been printed in whole without a fold or crease down the center? Like in a poster form, or something smaller suitable for framing. It's in the Slattery book but again it's printed between two pages.

    Re: Article: Johnny Marr with Dinosaur Jr playing "The Boy With The Thorn..."; other Was there also a version of TBWTTIHS done with no vocals, or am I misreading that?

    Piano-playing Smiths fan needed

    I'm trying to work out an accurate transcription of the piano parts in Meat Is Murder. I have a lot of it worked out already but I need someone who plays piano well to help proofread it/finish it off. Any takers?:crazy::guitar:

    Passions Just Like Mine RIP

    Re: Passions Just Like Mine RIP No offense to Morrissey-Solo, but it's not a good place to host something like PJLM. Just compare the two sites and you'll hopefully get my drift.

    Passions Just Like Mine RIP

    Re: Passions Just Like Mine RIP Yeah this is just devastating news, and no one is prepared for it. No one saved a backup of the live histories? What a blow, seriously. How can you replace that? It's like someone burning the last copy of an essential book. It has the in depth data that...
