I'm a freelance book reviewer on the side (ie it's not my day job) and I review a ton of music books, mainly on my favorite bands and musicians. I've recently been reviewing a lot of Smiths books so I figured some of you may be interested in reading the reviews:
A Light That Never Goes Out: http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com/2014/02/book-review-...er-goes-out.html
Morrissey: Autobiography: http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com/2013/11/book-review-autobiography.html
Songs That Saved Your Life (new edition): http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com/2014/03/book-review-...d-your-life.html
I am not going to bother reviewing my original edition of Songs That Saved Your Life (you can read why in my review above). Likewise with my original edition of Severed Alliance (I'm awaiting the updated edition from the publisher and will be reviewing it soon).
Hope you enjoy reading these!

Thank you for sharing.
I have this version of Songs That Saved Your Life. Is it any different to the one you reviewed, do you know?
I always liked Goddard's more than Rogan's, which went into too much detail on the family history of Morrissey and Marr. It's years since I read it, but I remember thinking that I was about a third of the book in before they met. But for me it's about the music rather than the personalities, so I'm influenced by that.
Incidentally, Grant Showbiz told me that he leant Johnny Rogan all his tapes so that he could catalogue the gigs.
