Praise for Telling Stories:

‘Clear, honest. An unusually frank and well-written rock memoir.’ Will Hodgkinson, The Times

‘Written with the stylish flow of a novel – light and dark, hilarious and melancholic.’ Emma Forrest

‘Eye-watering. Burgess writes candidly and with charm about Madchester, Britpop and beyond.’ Independent

‘The Charlatans’ frontman recalls the heyday of Britpop and Madchester with endearing exuberance. He’s unflinchingly honest about the bad times but also peppers his story with anecdotal nuggets about the pitfalls of rock ‘n’ roll excess.’ Metro
