Johnny Marr has long played the talented sidekick to some of music’s greats. He’s played guitar along side Morrissey with the Smiths. He’s played with Modest Mouse, but his latest musical forays have been just his. In 2013 Marr released “The Messenger” his first solo album, and rapidly followed it with “Playland” last month. Even as “The Messenger” came out, he was continuing to write, pushing out songs that would later makeup his sophomore (solo) album. “Easy Money” leads his latest release with a focus (obviously) on money and its place in people’s lives and people’s preoccupation with it. He is scheduled to play at the Newport on Saturday.
