The classic Smiths biography Morrissey didn’t want you to read, now updated
Morrissey & Marr: The Severed Alliance is among the most successful―and controversial―rock biographies ever published. Having denounced the book and called for the death of its author Johnny Rogan, Morrissey later did a U-turn and cited it as evidence in the royalty-related court case brought by Smiths drummer Mike Joyce.
Now, twenty years after it was first published, Rogan has returned to his definitive Smiths biography to produce a completely revised edition based on new information and new interviews to add to the almost one hundred initially conducted over a four-year period.
Widely acclaimed as one rock’s leading writers, Johnny Rogan now brings yet more insight and analysis to his best-selling book that revealed, for the first time, the true and unsanitised story of The Smiths―the most important group of their generation.
