11. Alex James - Bit Of Blur (2007)
The "second drunkest member of Britain's drunkest band" tells his story from middle class suburbia to hanging out with Damien Hirst and Tony Blair. In the process, he spends about £1 million on cocaine and alcohol and notches up many an anecdote. Things find an even keel when he sobers up and gets into producing cheese, but it's an enjoyable ride.
