Tim Jonze to get own chapter?

Morrissey is to write an autobiography wherein he intends to set "the record straight".

Speaking to Janine Long on her Radio 2 show, Morrissey said he was embarking on the tome because, “So much crap is written about you, me, and it's quite hard to live with sometimes because it all gets burned down in history and becomes a part of your, whatever it is you are, the legacy.”

Asked if he was referring to the ongoing Moz is a bit of fascist NME hoo-hah, the truculent fruit replied, "Well, many, many things. But with every printed interview there's lots of mis-quotes and lots of them are really silly and really extreme and you have to live with them for the rest of your life.

“So, it's setting the record straight, and things like that.”
