An excellent interview with Johnny Marr was published last week over at Stereogum.  Fans of Marr should check it out - he talked a lot about some of his previous collaborations and discussed what it was like working with the Pretenders and The The after leaving The Smiths:

"People still ask me about it. There was so much resistance at the time for me playing with Matt Johnson; it was like he was harboring this fugitive and I was supposed to be doing something else. We got a lot of grief from the press about working together."

"...getting to partner up with Chrissie Hynde for a year was really good for me. I was still feeling a bit bruised from the Smiths fallout and spending time with someone who was such a strong, interesting person was really a good influence on me. Her attitude really toughened me up."

Head over to Stereogum to read the full interview.
