I Was Morrissey's Drummer

In this fast-moving half-hour, comedian and writer Andrew Mcgibbon - a superb live and session drummer who has worked with everyone from Peter Gabriel to Bucks Fizz - recalls his drumming sojourn with Morrissey, arguably one of the wittiest and most profound rock poets of his generation.

With contributions from Suggs, The Smiths' bassist Andy Rourke, long-suffering producers Clive Langer (Elvis Costello, Dexy's Midnight Runners), Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths) and Danton Supple (Coldplay), as well as jaundiced journalists David Quantick and Mark Kermode.
