Johnny Marr: 'I haven't read Morrissey's autobiography' Johnny Marr Tickets

Former NME Godlike Genius is planning his own book

Video: Johnny Marr - I Haven't Read Morrissey's Autobiography Yet

Johnny Marr says he hasn't read the autobiography of his former Smiths bandmate Morrissey, which was published in October 2013.

Talking to NME at the NME Awards 2014 with Austin, Texas last night (February 26) Marr said he's too busy to read it. He is planning his own memoir and promises to focus on The Smiths more in his book.

Asked why he hadn't got around to reading 'Autobiography', Marr said: "I don't know about you, but I've got a lot of books to get through."

The recipient of 2013's Godlike Genius award also gave his advice to incoming Godlike Geniuses Blondie, and shared details of his soundtrack for the next Spider-Man movie. Click above to watch.

Johnny Marr also told NME that he will release a new solo album this September, the follow-up to last year's solo debut 'The Messenger'.

He said: "I've got a new record coming out in the end of September, the follow-up to last year's," he said. "I wanted to do the second one really quick. For me, it was just about being on tour and wanting to capture the spirit of the band and the audience before it wears off. I'd been touring for 11 months so I wanted to keep that same energy. I didn't want to overthink it."
