whatever their ability everyone raised the bar and challenged themselves. Endured a little something, pushed a little further than they usually would, all for a great cause.

If Morrissey's Memoir Is a Classic Then This Blog Post Is 'Moby Dick'

Daley James Francis | Posted 04.12.2012 | UK Entertainment
Daley James Francis

Johnny Rogan's 1992 biography of The Smiths' leading duo and subsequent fall out is a big seller and the definitive take on one of the 80's best loved and most missed bands, at least until Johnny Marr and/or Morrissey release definitive autobiographies.
