Awkward legend, vegetarian curmudgeon, my generation's Proust: Morrissey is on Front Row tonight at 1915. It's not his first time on the programme (listen to his previous appearance from February 2009) but it's no less dramatic for that. Broadcasting House was all aquiver this afternoon and presenter John Wilson tweeted excitedly:

     

    Moz was eloquent and charming. Tells me he's finished his autobiography, 660 pages long, now redrafting. Hear interview @BBCFrontRow 7.15less than a minute ago via web Favorite Retweet ReplyJohn Wilson

    Morrissey tells me he doesn't follow @Johnny_Marr on Twitter. I told him he should, he's missing out. Hear @BBCFrontRow 7.15less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet ReplyJohn Wilson

    Morrissey has just been confirmed for Glastonbury in June and the Hop Farm Festival in July.
