Suggs Autobiography "That Close" Now Available!
Today marks the publication of the much anticipated autobiography of Madness front man Suggs. The 400 pager takes readers on a journey form Suggs's early life growing up on a North London council estate, through the early days of Punk and 2-Tone, to the eighties, when Madness became the biggest selling singles band of the decade. Along the way he shares what it's like to go globetrotting with your best friends, to sign away your entire song rights 'in perpetuity' and cause an earthquake in Finsbury Park.
Below is a clip from the audio book on Suggs’ school years.
"That Close" is available via Amazon (hardcover and Kindle versions) in the U.S. and the U.K. Suggs will be doing a number of events to promote the book including in-store book signings in the U.K. His one one-man show comes to London in December: More information available here.
Suggs' publisher has been kind enough to make extracts of the book available for perusing here. Definitely a great teaser that will no doubt lure you into purchasing the tome!
