Johnny Marr, GG

POSTED Feb 13, 2013

Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr is set to pick up the Godlike Genius accolade at this year's NME Awards.

The magazine's editor Mike Williams said: "Never has anyone been so utterly deserving of the title", while Marr himself says he's "honoured" to be the next recipient of a gong previously won by the likes of Paul Weller and Noel Gallagher.
