Hmmmm, another potential grad school....

It's a challenge that most universities face - how to get their students out of bed and into the study hall. Today the University of Salford may have hit upon an effective solution: get Johnny Marr to give the lectures.

The legendary guitarist - whose career has taken him from the Smiths, through Electronic to, most recently, Modest Mouse - has been announced as Salford's new professor of music. Not just an honorary title, Marr's responsibilities will include hosting workshops on the composition and performance of popular music.
