Smiths reunion

We’re half way there: Last night in Brooklyn, The Smiths’ Johnny Marr and Andy Rourke reunited on stage for a performance of “How Soon Is Now?”.

Introducing Rourke, Marr said:

“When I was 15 and formed one of the first bands with my best friend, he was at that time one of the best musicians I’d ever heard. We were just kids. Then, in 1982, I formed a band in Manchester, and I asked my best friend to come play the bass with me and he’s still one of the best musicians I’d ever heard. And tonight, 30 years later, I’m going to invite one of my best friends in the world and he’s still one of the best musicians I’ve ever heard. From the Smiths, Mr. Andy Rourke on the bass.”

Watch footage of the performance below.

Thoughts, Morrissey?
