Morrissey contributes to New York Dolls book

Rock photographer joins forces with former Smiths singer

Morrissey has written an article for a new book on the New York Dolls.

The former Smiths singer wrote the afterword for ‘New York Dolls: Photographs’, a book of pictures of the seminal glam rockers whose praises he has sung throughout his career.

The pictures in the book were taken by photographer Bob Gruen, who has previously worked with The Rolling Stones, Blondie and Led Zeppelin.

This isn’t the first time Morrissey has written about the band; his book ‘The New York Dolls’ was published in 1981, while an article he wrote on the band appeared in The Next Big Thing fanzine three years earlier.
