As lead singer and extraordinary frontman of Slade, Noddy Holder was one of the most successful musicians of the '70s and '80s. The epitome of the Glam Rock look and lifestyle, they released anthem after anthem as they mixed pure pop madness with football chant choruses. Seemingly on a mission to corrupt the spelling of a generation, the hits are songs we still hold dear today: "Mama Weer All Crazee Now", "Look Wot You Dun", Cum On Feel The Noize"...In a short few years, they had 12 top five hits, 6 of them making number 1 spot. Their albums also topped the charts and their huge Christmas anthem "Merry Christmas Everybody" has entered the top twenty over 7 times. In the '80s, Slade made a brilliant revival with even more hits, especially "Run Run Away" and the classic "My Oh My". Today Noddy is as loved by the British public as he has ever been and in this hilarious autobiography, he will tell us his complete life story, from growing up in the Midlands, to performing in the working men's clubs. The information of their first group, The N'Betweens and the mutation into an unlikely skinhead group, Ambrose Slade.
And then, of course, Glam Rock and all the excesses of lifestyle that accompanied the outrageous clothes, not to mention guitarist Dave Hill's incredible hair style.
