Verse, Chorus, Monster!

Coxon, Graham


‘A refreshingly modest memoir.’ THE TIMES

Verse, Chorus, Monster! is the memoir of iconic British musician and Blur co-founder Graham Coxon, charting a life of music, fame, addiction and art. Before the noise and clamour of the Britpop era, Coxon was a shy Army kid tempering his anxiety through painting and a growing love of music. As he honed his artistic skill at school, his band with school friend Damon Albarn, fellow student Alex James, and a drummer called Dave Rowntree began to get noticed. But there are things they don’t tell you before you get famous. There are monsters out there. And some may even be lurking inside yourself.

‘Charting the hedonism of his Nineties heyday and the ensuing fallout, Blur's reluctant guitar hero is finally making himself heard.’ EVENING STANDARD

‘Breaks off with Coxon, a classically tortured artist, on a blessedly even keel.’ OBSERVER
