Although it's out together by a professional music journalist, this second biography of Bez has his stamp all over it. Mark Berry is the kid who clambered up on stage to dance with the band and never climbed down again. 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. There are very few typos and only one near-howler (to do with a roof and jumping – I’ll let you find it). Don't get me wrong it's a fun read at times but the Mondays stories are starting to wear a bit thin now.

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. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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. As an account of the deeds of the most wayward member of one of our most wayward bands, it does not disappoint. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults. 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). Shaun Ryder (who pops up throughout this book) has already done a couple of excellent biographies with pretty much the same details.

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. Having been in danger of becoming the rowdy kid in another class at school that nobody liked (although MB admits to skating over much of this, having covered it more in an earlier book), his public image proves nonetheless likeable to loads of people, which is why he won Celebrity Big Brother - and why I bought this book.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.
