Professor Johnny Marr... I love the sound of that

I just read today that Johnny Marr, cofounding member of the Smiths, has been given a position at the University of Salford as a visiting professor for courses on popular music and recording techniques.

That is fan-freakin'-tastic. I am sort of jealous really, and I don't even play music.

I wonder how many of his students will end up making a contribution to the world of popular music? Only time will tell.

Excellent guitarist-and probably an excellent teacher of music too.

Just the fact that he created one of the most memorable opening riffs in contemporary music makes him more than qualified in my eyes.
