    Whilst I agree Django is number one Marr is still a great guitarist, it's not all about playing 50 chords a minute. It's about good melodies that complement a singer and interest between chorus and verse.

    And yes; Morrissey is a master musician, alongside Jarvis Cocker and Elvis Costello.
    I'm also in love with Jarvis Cocker. His is a genius.

    I love the Smiths

    The lyrics of 'There is a Light' are really amazing.

    The Smiths have to be one of the greatest bands of all time, I haven't listened to anything else for about 4 months... still haven't got bored of them I think Marr is obviously a fantastic guitarist and a great composer, but his present musical exploits disappoint me somewhat... *The Cribs*

    What do you think of Morrissey as a solo artist, though, because I'm not as a big a fan of him as of the Smiths as a whole, though he does have a few brilliant songs (Ah, 'why don't you find out for yourself' is so lovely...)

    A lot of it is tongue-in-cheek.

    You are correct, Morrissey is an average solo artist.
