Johnny Marr has slammed online touts.
The former The Smiths star took to his Twitter account to criticise ''eBay t**sers'' after his Record Store Day 2015 cover of Depeche Mode's 'I Feel You' appeared on the web market place for an inflated price.
He wrote yesterday (21.04.15): ''I'll try to do an extra run of I Feel You 7'' singles so those who wanted it but didn't get it don't get ripped by the EBay t**sers. J.(sic)''
He had previously warned fans of Record Store Day - which celebrates the culture of independently owned music shops - not to buy the track for an inflated price, claiming it wasn't ''in the spirit of RSD''.
He said on April 18: ''Do not pay inflated prices for I Feel You on eBay. It's a rip off & not in the spirit of RSD. Johnny #screwthetouts''.
Meanwhile, the 51-year-old guitarist recently admitted he has managed to ''surprise himself'' with his cover of the Depeche Mode hit, which he has also adopted into his live set.
He said: ''I've surprised myself that it sounded so like me and my band. When you cover a song you have to bring something of yourself to it. I was playing it on tour, just in my dressing room, and it sounded good, and then I started to sing it and we worked it up in a soundcheck and played it immediately in the encore that night.''
