From the Publisher
Matt was brought up in a proudly close south London family with twin brother Luke and his mother, in a home frustrated by lack of money and difficult circumstances but all the time with exciting aspirations and grand designs.
Fortunes changed rapidly for Matt when, alongside his brother Luke and school friend Craig, he created Bros - a band that sold sixteen million records in an intensely chaotic and record-breaking reign over the world's pop charts. By the end of his teens, Matt could boast eleven Top 40 hits, number ones in nineteen countries, a Brit Award and the record for being the youngest band to headline Wembley Stadium.
Bros became a by-word for mercurial celebrity extravagance, hysterical fan stories, financial scandal, personal tragedy, tortuous upset and glorious triumph. Yet after those bizarre and insane times, Matt's life became even more tempestuous, crammed with inner fear, personal revelation and unforeseen challenges.
He is now back with a vengeance after a spell on TV's Hell's Kitchen, finding a new audience through his acclaimed solo music career, which has already included chart-topping soundtracks and further Top 40 hits. Here he will finally tell the true story of his life, promising to reveal a litany of private torment, personal revelations and celebrity anecdotes.
Matt Goss has been a staple part of British tabloid life for years - yet, the general public has had no idea of the astounding life that he has led - and still lives - behind the headlines and soundbites. Here, for the first time, he takes them into his confidence and reveals the true extent of his own astounding tale. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
About the Author
Along with his brother Luke and friend Craig Logan, Matt fronted the ‘80s pop sensation Bros. After unprecedented success, Bros disbanded in 1991, but hits such as ‘When Will I Be Famous’ and ‘I Owe You Nothing’ have been used on countless film and tv soundtracks. Recently, Matt Goss has made a comeback with his album Early Side of Later and his hit single ‘Fly’, and has made numerous high-profile television appearances, including ITV’s Hell’s Kitchen.

Starting with frank recollections of his childhood when his parents split up and the family were always moving around which led to an unsettled time ,and going right throught the heady madness of the Bros era ,to the present day and Matts experience on 'Hells Kitchen', it is an absorbing read and not just a list of Matts achievements which some biographies can be.
He is willing to share his thoughts and feelings of the difficult times after Bros ,when he felt alone and scared of coming back to the UK , after the British press gave him and twin Brother Luke such a hard time.
Answering the question ' Where have you been for the last 6 years?' he dispells the myth that he was on a permanant holiday and reveals that he was in fact working constantly , writing songs for other people and recording albums that unfortunately , due to one record company problem or another, never saw the light of day.
He tells for the first time the real reason that Craig Logan left Bros and they split up and the highs and lows of being SO famous that just walking down a street was a logistical nightmare.You get to hear about the Brossette madness from Matts' point of view , the highs of playing at Wembley Stadium and the good times that he had whilst being in Bros and how Matt feels now that he is once again being accepted by the British press and is enjoying the praise that he deserves with his latest album.
He tells a bit about his personal romantic life , but in the whole prefers to keep a little bit to himself about his relationship with Daisy Fuentes and his life with her in LA.He also is quite reserved in talking about past relationships which in this day of 'kiss & tell' is quite admirable.
He is openly appreciative of the support and dedication that his fans have given him for the last 18 years and tells how Daisy showed him a chat room where his fans were talking about him in their devoted way which spurred him on to return to the UK.
This book is a must read not only for all Bros fans but for those who wish to read an honest , modest and thoroughly enjoyable account of one mans life in Music , a passion which is so strong still for him.I was so thoroughly absorbed by this book that I couldn't put it down and my only complaint about it is that I would've prefered more pictures , but I can reccommend it 100%.
A must for any Bros fan!
It is a very personal book, it does not shy away from talking about how Matt Goss feels uncomfortable in the public eye, unless he is on stage performing his music. this explains the reason he wears hats a lot - to protect himself. The book describes the sense of not being safe that stems from an unstable childhood and a profession that cheers you up one day and tears you apart the next. Matt is now a successful resident in Vegas and looking at his tale and how from the outside fame looks fab when, in fact, on the other side things are not hunky dory is interesting, especially in the celebrity obsessed culture we are living. A very pleasant book. Sometimes it is quite cheesy (people being described as gentlemen all the time, not having any resentment towards the management that ripped them off or having to stay positive regardless the hard times), but it is not a self-pity tale, rather the story of someone who has gone through ups and downs and came out at the other end much stronger.
Throughout the book Matt's narrative comes across as intensely genuine and very personal. He gives an honest and detailed account of his life and doesn't shy away from revealing how difficult some of the years have been for him. It was wonderful to recall all those old memories about Bros and it was also incredibly interesting to hear their story from Matt's perspective. It's an excellent biography; fascinating, entertaining, funny and also sad in places. I couldn't put it down and finished it thinking what a really nice guy Matt Goss is.
Oh and reading this book prompted me to spend last Saturday morning getting the old vinyl out and playing the Bros albums for the first time in about 16 years - much to my husband's dismay!
