Beth Orton Explores Mad, Bad And Sad Love On Daybreaker
12, 2002 FROM MTV.COM （全文ソース）
met ex-Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr backstage after one of her sets on the
1999 Lilith Fair. Introduced
through a friend, Orton immediately struck up
a conversation with the guitarist for the band she had an intense love/hate
relationship with as a teen in England.
"I was and I wasn't a fan," she said of the Smiths. "They were everywhere, you couldn't get away from them growing up in England, especially in a small town. [But] I really liked him as a person when we met and we got on really well and we were talking, talking. Then I asked him, 'So, what do you do, anyway?' I didn't know who he was. [When I found out] I thought, 'Oh, f----ing hell!' "
the least bit slighted, Marr hooked up with Orton at their hotel that night
and, with the help of
bottles of wine, began singing and playing their hearts out with
a promise that they'd work together someday.
