Mike Joyce - The Smiths' drummer Mike Joyce wants a reunion

The Smiths' former drummer Mike Joyce insists he will never read Morrissey's autobiography.

The 50-year-old musician was with the band until they split in 1987 and later sued Morrissey and Johnny Marr over unpaid royalties, which is discussed in the book.

Speaking to the new issue of Q magazine, Mike said: ''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.''

However, he 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 last year Johnny Marr was joined onstage by his former bandmate Andy Rourke in New York.

The bass player accompanied him on two Smiths songs, 'How Soon Is Now?' and 'Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want', during Johnny's sold out headline show at Webster Hall in Manhattan.

A rare, signed, hardback copy of Morrissey's 'Autobiography' recently made £8,300 for animal charity, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
