About the Book

Excessive, outrageous, hilarious - the tell-all bio from one of the princes of 80s pop. I Am the Voice Left from Drinking is the no-holds-barred, brutally honest journey of an artist who made it from the suburbs to the top of the pop music charts, graced the covers of every music mag, hosted tV shows, lived the rock'n'roll dream and is still alive (barely) to talk about it. After forming his first band as a teenager with Sean Kelly, James Freud found big fame a few years later when they teamed up again in the Models, one of the most memorable Australian bands of the 1980s. For the best part of ten years James toured the world, hanging out with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Robert Mapplethorpe, Elvis Costello and Lady Di, all the while cranking out hits such as 'I Hear Motion', 'Barbados' and 'Out of Mind, Out of Sight'. this is a who's who of the entertainment industry; a funny, shocking tale of a man who has seen a lot and wants to tell his story. James is living proof that there is life after rock, that not every former music icon ends up in rehab or the funny farm, and that if they're actually still alive they've usually got some pretty interesting things to say!
