The definitive, authorized story of Suede, written by an insider with the cooperation of all members, now revised and updated
From the early beginnings and instant tag of the "new saviors of rock n' roll," to lead singer Brett Anderson's relationship with Justine Frischmann who to the delight of the press transferred her affections to rival band Blur's Damon Albarn, this authorized band biography covers their entire career. It discusses the arrival of guitar supremo Bernard Butler and the ensuing chart-topping singles, albums, and sell-out tours; Bernard's subsequent departure at the height of their fame and narcotic excesses; and tells their story right up to the present day, covering Suede's entire career. The author has drawn on dozens of new sources for this revised edition to add fresh insight and examine their musical legacy. The many sources interviewed include Justine Frischmann and the band's ex-manager Ricky Gervais.
