    I loved Andy Rourke's work with the Smiths. The early 80s is when I started to listen carefully to the musicians in the bands I liked, and his lines are still hard-wired in my memory. What a great pop bassist he was in his heyday. I was just noodling around to This Charming Man the other day. I'd always thought he did everything on the Yamaha.

    Amazing work. Chapeau!
  3. Awesome!
    The Smiths are my favorite rock band of all time!

    Nice work. Very thorough. I think Andy was really one of the finest bass players from the whole British new wave movement. Great melodic lines. Wish more folks would check him out.
  5. Andy Rourke is amazing.
  6. I'm a real latecomer to the Smiths bandwagon, but I can say that I really dig them! Very melodic band, with a great blend of jangly guitar and a solid rhythm section. And I like Morrissey's singing! :D
