“And I never will.”
Speaking to Q Magazine, former The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce said that he will never read the autobiography of his old bandmate Morrissey.
Joyce stated: "I've not read the book, and I never will. I've got a pretty good idea of what's in there. I don't want to go down that route of putting out a statement saying that this or that is wrong."
Joyce previously sued his bandmates in 1996 over unpaid royalties. The topic is discussed in Morrissey's book. Joyce also added that he would still be OK to participate in a Smiths reunion, saying, "Of course, we'd all do it we were asked. We were one of the greatest bands ever. As a performer, there was nobody better than Morrissey. But a reunion is never going to happen."
