Interviewer: The Smiths' or 'The Stone Roses'?
Noel: The Smiths. they have done so many things, have left so many impression in the music history behind. The Stone Roses made only one good album. A Fantastic album, but it lacks what The Smiths have - a fine hour of timeless music. I wouldn’t even count their second album. Each album by The Smiths is legendary, six, seven albums long. F*cking hell, how many are they?...(counts with his fingers The Smiths, Hatful of Hollow, Meat Is Murder, The Queen Is Dead, Strangeways, Here We Come, Rank…including Compilation and live albums. All of them strike.
Johnny - from a brilliant second man of The Smiths to solo artist, he’s been doing his own things for ages. For Example, how he built up his career with his guitar work from start until now.. Yeah, The Smiths, all day.
