The Smiths' former drummer Mike Joyce has said that he hasn't read old bandmate Morrissey's 'Autobiography' and he never will.

Speaking in Q magazine Joyce commented: "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."

In 1996 Joyce sued his ex-bandmates Morrissey and Johnny Marr over unpaid royalties, which is discussed by Morrissey in the book.

However, Joyce added that he would still be keen to take part 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."

In November of last year a partial Smiths reunion took place as Johnny Marr was joined onstage by his former bandmate 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.
