Watch: Johnny Marr and Andy Rourke Perform "How Soon Is Now?" in Brooklyn

Johnny Marr reunited with his former bandmate Andy Rourke to cover The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?" at the Music Hall of Williamsburg stage in Brooklyn last night (May 3).

Near the end of the show Marr invited Rourke onto the stage and gave him a great intro, telling the crowd: 

"When I was 15, I formed one of the first bands with my best friends. He was at that time one of the best musicians I'd ever heard; we were just kids. Then in 1982 I formed a band in Manchester and I asked my best friend to come and play the bass with me, and he was still one of the best musicians I'd ever heard. And tonight, 30 years later, I'm gonna invite [onstage] one of my best friends in the world - and he's still one of the best musicians I've ever heard."
