Buzzin': The Nine Lives of a Happy Monday
About this deal
You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Helpful asides from Shaun Ryder and others, including Berry’s son Arlo who proves fairly lucid – opportunity for another book? Also at the beginning he states he's not going to go on about criminal activities again because he doesn't want his kids reading it. 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.

Neither an accomplished musician nor even a very good dancer, Bez was a prime candidate for fleeting celebrity, soon to sink into 'Where Are They Now? When he bowled into Celebrity Big Brother in 2005, he ended up winning the series, as viewers came to understand his fundamental decency and sunny outlook.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). As an account of the deeds of the most wayward member of one of our most wayward bands, it does not disappoint. This is the story of a bad lad who has turned his life good, tracing his passage from early-thirty-something casualty to middle-aged politician, eco-warrior and bee-aficionado. 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.
Shaun Ryder (who pops up throughout this book) has already done a couple of excellent biographies with pretty much the same details. Equally, we’re ‘there along with’ Mark B, rather than observing his antics laterally, as we do with some autobiographies. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. There are very few typos and only one near-howler (to do with a roof and jumping – I’ll let you find it). The pre-loved books are carefully cleaned and maintained offering a wide variety of general and specialist titles from children's to adults.
Mark Berry is the kid who clambered up on stage to dance with the band and never climbed down again. 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. 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.
