Guardian website was all a flutter over this yesterday, there must have been a half dozen separate articles.

I saw one of his last (apparently) gigs in Mexico - and he rocked - infinitely better than when I saw him in UL a few years before.
I know this is not cool to say, but they did fantasitc versions of Still Ill and That Joke..
Slayed.

I'm a good bit into the first bit of the book and enjoying it. The background to growing up in Manchester is well written and quite evocative. I'm surprised at how strong his links to his family are as well.
I'm interested to read about his own take on his fame, with the Smiths and post-Smiths. Whatever you think of him, he has had an extraordinary career largely on his own terms, and never really played the standard fame game.
I hope the book doesn't descend into a Golden Cleric Awards speech; though I fear it will.

Not sure what I did there.
I meant to reply -
Outrageous and very silly.
There was a funny "heated debate" on C4 news about it last night. Author Tim Lott very aggrieved over the book's Classic status; quite funny.

Needs to get back Alain Whyte. Morrissey wrote his best post-Smiths songs with him before ditching him about a decade ago.

I love the music (and the man, mostly) and I'll never "grow out of him".

On the subject of his autobiography though, doesn't anyone remember that Channel 4 documentary from a few years ago which showed him hanging out with Nancy Sinatra and generally just acting kind of odd in LA? That was enough of an insight into his life for me anyway, though I'll read the book sometime.
