Bit of a Blur: The Autobiography

Bit of a Blur: The Autobiography


For Alex James, tune had regularly been a door to a extra interesting life—a option to go back and forth, meet new humans, and, confidently, decide up ladies. yet as bass participant of Blur—one of the main winning British bands of all time—his trip was once extra interesting and severe than he may ever have estimated. good fortune catapulted him from a slug-infested squat in Camberwell to a global of non-public jets and world-class eating places. As "the moment drunkest member of the world’s drunkest band" Alex James's lifestyles used to be constantly chaotic, yet he retained a boundless enthusiasm and interest at odds together with his hedonistic way of life. From nights within the Groucho with Damien Hirst, to dancing to Sister Sledge with Björk, to being bitten at the nostril via the lead singer of Iron Maiden, he bargains a desirable and hilarious perception into the area of megastar. At its middle, however, this is the picaresque story of 1 man’s seek to discover that means and happiness in an more and more surreal global. Pleasingly unrepentant yet still a reformed guy, Alex James is the precise chronicler of his generation—witty, frank and brimming with joie de vivre. A little bit of a Blur is as fascinating, humorous, and deliciously disreputable as its author.
