Johnny Marr was last night (November 16) joined onstage by his former bandmate in The Smiths, Andy Rourke, onstage in New York.

Bass player Rourke accompanied Marr on two Smiths songs, 'How Soon Is Now?' and 'Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want', during Marr's sold out headline show at Webster Hall in Manhattan, according to Brooklyn Vegan's Instagram feed.

Rourke also played with Johnny Marr in New York back in May, again playing The Smiths' 'How Soon Is Now?' at a show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn.

Johnny Marr recently revealed that he is planning on releasing an autobiography in the "next couple of years". The guitarist's former bandmate Morrissey published his autobiography earlier this year and the book has subsequently gone onto be a huge success. The Penguin published memoir sold just under 35,000 copies in its first week of sale and has been tipped to become a Christmas bestseller according to high-street retailer Waterstones.

In an interview with Brooklyn Vegan, Marr was asked if he had any plans to release his own autobiography and the guitarist responded: "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."

He went onto add: "I'll do it in the next couple of years. I'm into from 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."
