Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr tweeted on Thursday that he is planning to write an autobiography. According to Marr, no deal has been made but he has been approached with a serious offer to pen a tell-all about his time in the Smiths.

Smiths vocalist Morrissey has been at work on his own autobiography for the past few years. Though no date has been set for the publication of the singer's memoirs, it could turn out that both books come on the market around the same time.

Marr says that his only reservation regarding a book deal is that it would take time away from playing music. He is currently a member of the British indie band the Cribs.
