Joe Longthorne MBE

The Official Autobiography

with Chris Berry



The ups and downs, the triumphs and tragedies, Joe Longthorne doesn’t hold anything back.

Joe's life has had more highs and lows than any rollercoaster. Platinum albums; Primetime TV shows; and sell out performances at the Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House make up just some of the highs. His 20-plus year battle with cancer has been tough but Joe has never flinched from what he was born to do - perform!

This year he received the MBE in the Queen's birthday honours for his unstinting charity work. He is the UK's hardest working singer having completed 100 performances every year for the past 5 years and is touring Australia and the US. Joe is as ambitious as ever and is closer than ever to his mecca – headlining in Vegas.

“The highs and lows are extraordinary... It's the real truth. A fascinating autobiography.”
Lorraine Kelly, GMTV

“Joe’s life is the stuff that novelists couldn't make up... It's the best autobiography I've ever read!”
Ricky Tomlinson

Joe Longthorne's best-selling autobiography reached No.1 in the Amazon charts when released as a hardback in 2010.
Since then his roller coaster life has continued with sell-out tours of UK theatres; a horrific car crash which left he and his partner with terrible injuries; the loss of one of his closest friends to cancer; and in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours he received the MBE. Later this year he will be touring Australia for the first time in a decade and a tour of the US is planned for 2013.
Now is the time for a totally updated edition of Joe's amazing life story in paperback. Every chapter in the original book has been altered; there are several new chapters reflecting the past two years; and there's a new cover plus a completely different and expanded photograph section.
Joe is all-set to take on the world once again. This multi-million selling artist with Platinum albums to his name and fans in high places has overcome cancer, bankruptcy, overdoses and depression. His story is wonderful, manic, hilarious, brilliant and tragic at one and the same time. He is one of the biggest stars the UK has ever produced - all from humble beginnings in the travelling community in Hull - and his TV shows in the early 90s attracted over 12 million.
There is still another chapter or two to come, but the story at present is the hardest-hitting, no punches pulled autobiography you will ever read.
