Johnny Marr - Johnny Marr Named Nme's New Godlike Genius Honouree

Rock veteran Johnny Marr is set to be hailed with the Godlike Genius honour at the 2013 Nme Awards.

The former The Smiths star will join the ranks of Paul Weller, The Cure, Dave Grohl and last year's (12) winner, Noel Gallagher, when he collects the accolade at the London ceremony on 27 February (13).

Marr says, "It is a very nice thing to be getting this award. The Nme seems to be good at giving this award to people I like, so I'm in good company. I guess it means that some things are alright with the world."
