Jen rated it really liked it Jan 07, Dec 25, Nel rated it liked it. The official story of Blur, told through exclusive interviews. The book does get less detailed and more idealistic towards the end, but it’s still nice to revisit before hearing the old hits again. Feb 16, Heather rated it liked it Shelves: This is the story of bitter rows with record companies, farcical feuds with Oasis, However, as someone else pointed out, there is far too much emphasis on the business side and too little about the actual creative process and inspiration behind Blur’s music.
It offered great insight into the lives of each member and their history together. For me what was interesting the most were the relationship, as in any story. Essential for any Blur fan: This took me forever to read, but it was well worth it! The official story of the most significant British band of the 90s.
This is the story of bitter rows with record companies, farcical feuds with Oasis, fist fights with each other, struggles with the bottle, foundering romances and a love-hate relationship with America.

Blur : Days – The Official History by Stuart Maconie (, Paperback) | eBay
Unfortunately for Maconie, this book ended right before the most major event to have happen to blur since they were reformed, that is of course Graham’s departure and the following hiatus. Tragically, the last chapter ends just a few years before Graham Coxon leaves Blur inwhich makes the cheerful conclusion a little bit bittersweet.
Published in Maconie is, by no fault of his own, blissfully ignorant of the tension and further bad blood to come that would result in Graham Coxon’s departure a few years later. Virgin- Music – pages.

Blur: 3862 Days: The Official Story
Blur are important for me as they were the group that made me like alternative music and this bio tells the story, beginning with the band’s roots and all the problems that came with them – since the group consists of four distinct personalities clashes were bound to happen and fighting has plagued the band from day one – Maconie makes this clear. Even though I don’t know much beyond The Best Of – Blur shaped my adolescence despite being a bit too young when they were at their prime.
It makes for quite the lush picture. Return to Book Page.
