Johnny Marr has taken a swipe at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, insisting he's glad his cult band the Smiths has not been honoured with an induction.
I hope this doesn't sound ungracious, but I don't think awards mean d**k
Marr formed the British band with vocalist Morrissey in the early 1980s, and they've since been feted by critics and fans as one of the most influential rock groups ever.
Despite their success, the band has not yet been inducted into the U.S.' prestigious Hall of Fame - but guitarist Marr is adamant he's not bothered about receiving the honour.
Asked if he would like to see The Smiths in the Hall of Fame, Marr tells AVClub.com, "Uh... not really, no. I mean, I don't mean to be ungrateful, and if the opportunity came I would never be ungracious.
"I hope this doesn't sound ungracious, but I don't think awards mean d**k. I'm a musician - I'm not in the television business".
