Mike Joyce: 'I'm not reading Morrissey's book... but I would reunite The Smiths' (Q331 preview)

Mike Joyce: 'I'm not reading Morrissey's book... but I would reunite The Smiths' (Q331 preview) - QTheMusic.com

The Smiths' Mike Joyce has told Q he will not read Morrissey's Autobiography, despite his court case against the singer figuring in it heavily.

The drummer took legal action against the frontman and guitarist Johnny Marr in 1996 over unpaid royalties. He won, but Morrissey devotes around 40 pages in his book taking issue with the judgement - yet Joyce will not get a copy he reveals in our new issue, Q331 out now.

"I've not read the book, and I never will," he declares. "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."

Despite the dispute, the drummer insists he would join a Smiths reunion, if offered, in a heartbeat.

"Of course, we'd all do it we were asked. We were one of the greatest bands ever," he explains. "As a performer, there was nobody better than Morrissey. But a reunion is never going to happen."

Grab Q331 now for the full interview, eyewitness pieces, unseen pictures and much more on the band.

Even if the royalties/court case situation never happened, I'm still not sure Morrissey would be that eager to reform. Though some unfinished business with Marr certainly would've transpired by now. It still may. I'd be pretty happy with a one-off EP of some new Morrissey-Marr tracks, even if they didn't play them together live.

FYI to Mike Joyce, bad idea to have sued your cash cows.

I do not understand Mike Joyce at all, he's like a child with his hands over his ears and eyes scrunched up refusing to see the bleedin' obvious..

If he did read the book he'd FINALLY have to accept that there is no hope of a Smiths reunion (for this read 'whopping great pay day for him').

Did you actually bother to read the interview link in the first post - where Joyce clearly states a reunion is 'never going to happen'?
He knows.
He's thick, but he's not THAT thick.

I really think the only sort of reunion that may ever see the light of day, would be a live performance with Johnny Marr and Morrissey. [What a great record that would be]. I really like the new Johnny Marr album, very Railway Children meshed with Church. I think Morrissey was very clear on his viewpoint when Mr. Marr wanted to reunite them the second time around
