Success catapulted Alex James from a slug-infested squat in Camberwell to a world of private jets and world-class restaurants. As the second drunkest member of the world's drunkest band life was always chaotic, but Alex James retained a boundless enthusiasm and curiosity at odds with his hedonistic lifestyle.

In Bit of a Blur he recounts his experiences living through the madness of Britpop, detailing both the pleasures and perils of fame. From nights in the Groucho with Damien Hirst, to dancing to Sister Sledge with Bjork, to being bitten on the nose by the lead singer of Iron Maiden, he offers a fascinating and hilarious insight into the world of celebrity.

Alex James is the perfect chronicler of his generation: witty, observant, frank, and brimming with joie de vivre. Bit of a Blur is as charming, funny, and deliciously disreputable as its author. Download and start listening now!

    " uh, i didn't exactly read this, I listened to the audio book, which was a million times better I'm sure because Alex James himself reads it. If you like Blur at all, this is the best book ever. "

    " I fluctuated between living Alex to wanting to give him a good shake! Alex James seems to have tripped through life trampling on everything and hurting those he cared for but still comes out shining and successful! Despite this his biography is an enjoyable read and when he decided to sort his life out he becomes a lot more likeable! "
