Format: Paperback
This book is the best read I've had in ages. Laugh out load? Of course I did. The common theme throughout the book is humour and on several occasions I was litterally rolling around on the floor with my sides splitting. Bez, the young scally from Salford made good, well sort of anyway. The book follows his life from birth to present day with the most attention not suprisingly paid to his time with the Monday's and the period just before he joined them. From knocking off golf equipment from a clubhouse, to working as a Morrocan tourist guide in the full north african attire Bez has done it all. And he did it all with the planning and appearance of a complete nutcase. I'm sure many have fallen by the wayside trying follow the same path as Bez but here's a man who made it. A man who stuck two fingers up at convention and made a name for himself as the nutcase from Manchester who took loads of drugs and played Marracca's in the band that was 'Madchester'. If you were there in '88, if your one of the chemical generation, if you wore a mustard yellow hooded top with baggy purple tracksuit bottoms or even if you just like a good story and good laugh this book is for you. Highly Reccomended.

This is the most entertaining and enjoyable read available in the shops today.Bez's life is one of stunning highs and lows and he conveys this quite brilliantly.From his forays in a Morrocan cave to the Free Trade Hall, Bez lets us into his life through his own eyes.Any fan of the Happy Mondays or Black Grape should make sure that they have a copy!

Wasn't sure if i'd get into this book. Yes i like bez's character,but can he tell a story?
He certainly can,this is a really funny book that feels as if he's talking to you personally,trying to remember what happened at certain periods of his life.
Not only is it funny,it makes you see his life as something other than a drug and booze mess.
A lot of it is actually quite touching and really shows a humane side to him a lot of people might asume he doesn't possess. It's a really easy read aswell,some books drag on a bit,getting bogged down in uninteresting facts,this doesn't.
Really glad i picked it up now,pleasant surprise.

This is the baddest, maddest autobiography ever! A funny and occasionally shocking account of one man's chemical adventures in one of the best bands ever. A must - have.

I read Bez's autobiography when it was first published in 2000, and I knew I would enjoy this book. Bez is a hilarious storyteller. Even now, when I read it again it makes me laugh reading his antics in Morrocco, and just being totally off his head during his tours with The Happy Mondays at the peak of the "Madchester" craze in the early nineties.
A must read for fans and for those that were into the rave pill popping scene back in those days.

This is a fantastic book. It has been around for years and I had never bothered to read it; thought it was just another cash in. Well I was wrong. I got it for Christmas and with nothing to do settled down to read it.I loved it. Once I had gotten over the affectation of leavin' off the g, I didn't even notice it. I particularly enjoyed his memories of his time before the Mondays: school, crime, prison, visiting Amsterdam and Morocco as well Manchester bars like Corbieres. Although I think it was ghost written, you really go on a journey with him and can feel the vicarious thrill of his drugged fuelled odyssey. If he hadn't joined the Mondays, he would probably be dead or in jail now. In fact when you read about the scrapes he has been through, it is almost a miracle he is still around. As someone who first bought Freaky Dancin ( the single) in 86, I was hoping for a bit more insight into the music but then again, Bez was all about the groove not the music. A surprisingly brilliant book

I couldn't put this book down, it's so well written!.
If you were involved in the Rave scene in the 90's you will relate to so much of the book and if you weren't you'll have a historical journey of what it was like!
It made me laugh a lot!

Format: Paperback
For Bez to be able to write a book after all those years of crazy drug abuse and generally pissing about is, in itself, quite an achievement. To be able to write a book that not only captures the spirit of the Mondays, but is also hilariously funny and doesn't attempt to glamorise or condone his years of abuse is wicked. Bez comes across as a sound geezer who has learnt a lot from his youthful escapades, and has come away with a few insights into life, aswell as a few laughs. This book would be enjoyed by students, dossers and anyone who'se been there and seen what it's like to spend a lifetime of scrapes and gettin off your head. Top one.
