Echo And The Bunnymen Frontman To Publish Memoirs

Echo and The Bunnymen singer, Ian McCulloch is due to publish his memoirs next year.

Publisher’s Transworld have recently bought the rights to McCulloch’s memoirs from Mayer Benham and hopes to publish them in summer 2009.

"The man is a one-off, an iconic figure whose passion for words, music and for his city is utterly infectious,” said Simon Taylor, editorial director of Transworld, in a statement today.

McCulloch is the latest figure from the Crucial Three, the short-lived band formed in 1977, to publish his memoirs.

In 1994, Julian Cope, former singer with the infamous Liverpool post-punk band, The Teardrop Explodes, published the first volume of his autobiography, “Head On”, followed by “Repossessed” in 1999.

As yet there is no title for the work.
