About this deal

As an account of the deeds of the most wayward member of one of our most wayward bands, it does not disappoint. Don't get me wrong it's a fun read at times but the Mondays stories are starting to wear a bit thin now. Helpful asides from Shaun Ryder and others, including Berry’s son Arlo who proves fairly lucid – opportunity for another book? Brilliant to read the life and times of Bez, met him last month at the old wollen, part of his conversational tour and got a signed book too what a genuine person he really is.

Loved reading about his career , near misses fighting the establishment and the way he's tried standing up for what he believes in and his way of living now.Also at the beginning he states he's not going to go on about criminal activities again because he doesn't want his kids reading it. The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults. This is the story of a bad lad who has turned his life good, tracing his passage from early-thirty-something casualty to middle-aged politician, eco-warrior and bee-aficionado. Through Black Grape, the second band he co-fronted with the Mondays' Shaun Ryder, and his ever-presence in the mass media, Bez's popularity has grown exponentially, his star rocketing ever upwards.

Neither an accomplished musician nor even a very good dancer, Bez was a prime candidate for fleeting celebrity, soon to sink into 'Where Are They Now? The major problem with the book is that it's boring in parts - the bee keeping and reality party stuff is covered in way too much depth and Bez goes on about the pandemic lockdown being wrong (though he was partying on a private estate at the time). To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. His adult life has been extraordinary: unbelievable scrapes with mortality, periods of financial ruin, mindfuck moments like when David Bowie genuflected before him, and enough narcotic-strewn hi-jinx to fill several more volumes of memoir.

No one’s claiming that Bez wrote all of this: some of it sounds dictated (‘That bloke out the Stones, Ron Wood’) and some edited (‘to whom’), but Andrew Perry has done a fair job of licking it into shape, so that you can still hear it being read in Bez’s own voice.
