Has written about Morrissey, Marr & The Smiths over the years.
Morrissey directly mentions him in Autobiography:
"Writer Jon Savage was also there; a friend to me, of sorts, whose flat on Wilbraham Road I would visit on nights of mourning, fascinated by Jon’s Punk dissertations, his vintage Jag, and tales of his childhood in Kensington, where he had an entire floor of an Edwardian house to himself – such the indulgence of an only child by comfortable parents."
A postcard sent in 1985 to Jon by Morrissey which features Billy Fury:
English writer, broadcaster and music journalist, born 2 September 1953 in Paddington, London, England. He is best known for his award winning history of the Sex Pistols and punk music 'England's Dreaming'.
