Matt Goss is to tell his life story for the first time, from before the Bros years, through the heady days as frontman for the biggest pop band on the planet, to the traumatic times following the band's split and his gritty, inspired return to public prominence. Matt was brought up in a proudly close south London family with twin brother Luke and his mother, in a home frustrated by lack of money and difficult circumstances but all the time with exciting aspirations and grand designs. Fortunes changed rapidly for Matt when, alongside his brother Luke and school friend Craig, he created Bros - a band that sold sixteen million records in an intensely chaotic and record-breaking reign over the world's pop charts. By the end of his teens, Matt could boast eleven Top 40 hits, number ones in nineteen countries, a Brit Award and the record for being the youngest band to headline Wembley Stadium. Bros became a by-word for mercurial celebrity extravagance, hysterical fan stories, financial scandal, personal tragedy, tortuous upset and glorious triumph. Yet after those bizarre and insane times, Matt's life became even more tempestuous, crammed with inner fear, personal revelation and unforeseen challenges. He is now back with a vengeance after a spell on TV's Hell's Kitchen, finding a new audience through his acclaimed solo music career, which has already included chart-topping soundtracks and further Top 40 hits. Here he will finally tell the true story of his life, promising to reveal a litany of private torment, personal revelations and celebrity anecdotes. Matt Goss has been a staple part of British tabloid life for years - yet, the general public has had no idea of the astounding life that he has led - and still lives - behind the headlines and soundbites. Here, for the first time, he takes them into his confidence and reveals the true extent of his own astounding tale.
