Blessed are the cheesemakers,
This review is from: Bit Of A Blur: The Autobiography (Paperback)
The diary of the accidental rock star. There is little in this that explains the rise of Blur; their music and career are mostly "scenes off", described in passing as the background that enables his lifestyle. If you want a history of Blur, this is not it. However, if you want a portrait of what it feels like to become more successful than you can imagine, drink your weight in champagne several (hundred) times over and come out of the other side largely unscathed while having a hoot of a time doing it, then this is your book.
I came to this book from enjoying his articles in the Independent rather than as a Blur fan and the book is written in the same breezy style. Refreshingly honest, detailing most of his excesses with fondness and hilarity, it is a good read that I found very difficult to put down.
