Johnny Marr is to write his own ‘Autobiography’, which is to say he’s going to commit his life story to paper, in the form of a book. It won’t be out for around two years, though, so I wouldn’t hang around waiting for it.

Interviewed last week by Brooklyn Vegan, Marr said: “There is gonna be one, yeah. I’ve had so many offers and so many people advising me that my story is worth it, but I understand it’s something that I have to do. I’ll do it in the next couple of years. I’m into the stance that I want it to be so thorough that I don’t make a record or tour whilst I was doing it. It is gonna happen, and I’ve already made an agreement with a publisher for it, so I will get it done”.

Also in books-by-one-time-Smiths goings-on, Morrissey’s ‘Morrissey’ book is now available as a hardback. And a merry Smithsmas to all.
