Johnny Marr’s 4-word shutdown of Smiths reunion rumours was the perfect Morrissey pisstake
Johnny Marr has put rumours of a Smiths reunion firmly to bed after he was contacted by a fan on Twitter asking him if they were true or not.
A chap called Nick Tudor sent him a screenshot of the rumours from a Smiths fan site.

And Marr’s reply was both a very efficient denial and a very satisfying takedown of his old bandmate at the same time.
