Smiths and Modest Mouse guitarist Johnny Marr has announced that he will join Dinosaur, Jr. on stage for a special performance in New York this December. Via NME:
On December 1, Dinosaur Jr. will celebrate the 25th anniversary of “You’re Living All Over Me” at Terminal 5 in New York City. The band will play the album in its entirety followed by a second set spanning their catalogue with very special musical guests joining them onstage. We’re excited to announce the first of these special guests: Johnny Marr, known for his work in The Smiths, Modest Mouse & The Cribs. Marr will sit in with Dinosaur Jr. for a song or two, and we’re thrilled he’ll be celebrating with us. More special guests to be announced.
This is what we love about Johnny Marr. In addition to being a rock genius, the man continues to throw himself into new projects at almost 50 years-old. Not only that, but they’re almost always good. He should run a seminar for other rock stars on how to age gracefully.
