Simon Wolstencroft, ex-drummer of The Smiths, helped write an intro to the biography in what could be the closest fans get to seeing inside one of England's best loved bands (and frontman?). The biography touches on Morrissey and Marr's introduction, early musical influences such as the New York Dolls, Nico, and the Sex Pistols, as well as the bands first ever live show.
Published by Omnibus Press, the book will be released on 22nd March.
