Whether pushing for chart action while fronting his former band The Freshies or allowing the bombastic Sidebottom to wreak anarchy and chaos on television, radio or with the Oh Blimey Big Band, Sieveys mischievous muse seemed to obey no boundaries. Yet it was only after Chriss untimely demise in 2010 that the extent of his infl uence became fully apparent.The emergence of Jon Ronsons film, Frank, Steve Sullivans exhaustive documentary Being Frank: The Chris Sievey Story and the bizarre erection of the Frank Sidebottom statue in his native Timperley last October - before 2,000 devotees - all combined to make this the most extraordinary stories of recent decades.In this unorthodox biography, legendary journalist Mick Middles draws on his thirty year friendship with Sievey to gain further insight this most charismatic of artists. Family members, fellow musicians, fans and acquaintances help trace Chriss career from Timperley to Hollywood.
