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 Id 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 hes still one of the best musicians Id ever heard. And tonight, 30 years later, Im going to invite one of my best friends in the world and hes still one of the best musicians Ive ever heard. From the Smiths, Mr. Andy Rourke on the bass.
