Johnny Marr: Meet the New Guy – Apparently, his teenage son is a huge Modest Mouse fan: “Yeah, he knew the riff to “Ocean Breathes Salty” before I learned it. So that was kind of handy! […] I was talking to them about being on tour. I was saying, ‘This record might keep me away next year. What do you think?’ And he was like, ‘What are you even asking me for? It’s Modest Mouse. Go do it.'”
Marr’s views on substances: “I don’t have any truck against psychedelics, not in the slightest. I’m not into alcohol and I loathe cocaine. I think it’s really corny and anti-creative.”
