In an exclusive interview with Johnny Marr, we asked former Smiths guitarrist about a funny episode when he got almost kidnapped by the Happy Mondays and if that was actually true and if he regrets not having joined the Mondays then and Marr said:
"That happened, yes" and added "no, I certainly don't regret it. I respect them a lot but that was a bad idea right from the off. There were some guys standing there at the door, like security guards and they were there to not let me out and these were guys I knew, I just couldn't believe it. That was funny. That was a strange episode. That was before they did this album in Barbados. But it was really the right decision, yeah, man. I wouldn't be here right now. I would either be dead or I would be sat on top of a cave somewhere rocking backwards and forwards."
