    PDF bunatime.co Å Bit of a Blur PDF/EPUB » Bit of PDF/EPUB or blur mobile, Bit of pdf, Bit of a Blur eBookSoMuchFunI can't remember when a book last left me with such a sense of undiluted joy Alex James is clearly one of those people who is extroverted optimistic spontaneous and naturally lucky and the tone of the book is infectious He has enthusiasm and curiosity about pretty much everywhere he goes and everything he does whilst seeing his 1990s excesses through older wiser eyes it's lovely to find such positivity combined with self awareness and intelligence It seems that he rarely did stuff or hung out with people because it was supposed to be cool he unwittingly stumbled across them and genuinely really liked them This is friendly funny and often aphoristic writing and it's really nice to see someone uncynically m

    PDF bunatime.co Å Bit of a Blur PDF/EPUB » Bit of PDF/EPUB or blur mobile, Bit of pdf, Bit of a Blur eBookAlex James reckons bass players in bands are cool most of the bass players I've ever even noticed on stage have hidden behind everyone else Although Alex James seemingly set out to be the coolest bass player rock roll has ever known he goes on to prove with a brilliant anecdote about the bass player from Coldplay the competition hasn't been that strongFrom the opening lines I was impressed with his ability to write weaving together a series of interesting and entertaining anecdotes with an infectious enthusiasm granted if you can't have enthusiasm for your subject when you're writing about yourself you may as well give up writing altogether but James is erudite and witty and incredibly frank about his occasionally abhorrent behaviour I was enamoured from the start and James and obviously a great editor didn't let me down becoming by uite some margin my favourite autobiographybiography that I've ever picked up

    PDF bunatime.co Å Bit of a Blur PDF/EPUB » Bit of PDF/EPUB or blur mobile, Bit of pdf, Bit of a Blur eBookThis book is essentially the non fiction memoir of Alex James the bassist from Blur and so as such it takes us behind the scenes of the Britpop revolution and shows just what it was like to be a part of one of the biggest bands of the turn of the century For someone born right at the end of the 80s all of that delicious 1990s pop culture stuff made me nostalgicBut what I most liked here was the honesty with which he wrote about his life as well as some of the stories about how nuts Graham Coxon is James was studying French at university and has always had a bit of thing for the French and French culture and that was pretty cool as well because I’ve been working on my own French I’ve been practicing my bass guitar skills tooAs rock ‘n’ roll memoirs go it’s perhaps pretty tame but that’s okay I wasn’t

    PDF bunatime.co Å Bit of a Blur PDF/EPUB » Bit of PDF/EPUB or blur mobile, Bit of pdf, Bit of a Blur eBookDisappointingly pedestrian unilluminating predictable annoying and just plain disappointingThis is the well trod trajectory of an art school student aspiring then hugely successful musician who looses his way in the usual pit of ultimately miserable bacchanalian excess and guess what? Material wealth possessions celebratory status success and adulation didn't lead to happiness who'd have thought?Whilst clearly that does seem to have been the life of Alex James what is disappointing here is not that he lead that life but that this book tells us nothing new there are no insights and neither is it told in any kind of interesting amusing or even stylish way Sorry Alex probably better stick to bass playing and cheese making?
