The secrets of cult British bands The Smiths and the Stone Roses are to be exposed in a new book written by the groups' original drummer.
Simon Wolstencroft played drums in an early incarnation of the Stone Roses in the late 1980s, and had turned down an offer to become The Smiths' full-time sticksman in 1982 because he didn't like Morrissey's singing.
Wolstencroft is now writing his memoirs, titled You Can Drum But You Can't Hide, and he's promised to lift the lid on the early days of both bands.
He tells LouderThanWar.com, "There have been many books written about The Smiths and The Roses and this will be an inside story from the horse's mouth."
