About this deal
This strikes me as a somewhat odd statement given that 1) James has had several jobs like this, and 2) it was James that got me this job in the first place. Brown notes that he was younger than pretty much all of his staff, and that his mum had died only months before the opportunity to do Loaded arose. “So there was no structure or sense of recuperation. And then – boom! – I create this thing that explodes, and all of the things about me that annoyed people – my ego and my voice and opinions – got fuelled.” I always thought it was like bands when the key member leaves. The songwriter or lead singer. It was my magazine … which everybody else made great

I’ve never brushed shoulders with royalty and I’d prefer it if the Royal Family invested a lot of their wealth in helping our schools and health service, so no, I don’t think my political outlook has changed since I was down the front of the Redskins or New Town Neurotics at the Hull Trades and Labour club.”
Social media, YouTube and podcasts. Far more interaction across a broader media landscape. Print isn’t dead, but it isn’t the big beast it once was.” Being told that when you know you’ve got no control over yourself was a real wake-up moment,” he says. It helped that Condé Nast were waving heaps of money at Brown for him to edit the upmarket fashion magazine GQ, believing it had got stuffy and needed an injection of fun. Still, leaving Loaded was like splitting up with someone, and he didn’t open a copy for a while. There was not much fun in media before we came along.

It depends what time of the day and what drugs. And I guess it depends on the individual taking them.

In between, his mother died in tragic circumstances and gradually his own drug and alcohol use began to take over. A combination of a great photograph, strong cover lines and good colours. If you get all three you are perfectly set.” Brown isn’t afraid of a brag or two in his book, and he believes Loaded’s decline came swiftly after his exit. “I always thought it was like those bands where the key member leaves,” he says with a mischievous grin. “The songwriter or lead singer. It was my magazine … which everybody else made great.” By 2007, the magazine was taking its staff on a straight pride march around London under the editorship of Martin Daubney, now deputy leader of Laurence Fox’s Reclaim party.

As a young devotee of the music press, I hoovered up his every word. I liked it his stuff because it was always enthusiastic, hardly ever snide or self-consciously clever. Any band that James Brown championed was worthy of investigation. It's an inspiring read of a working-class boy who did really well and lived by the motto that anything was possible. After leaving school with no qualifications it's clear that despite all the fun and the carefree attitude that he attempts to portray throughout the book that he grafted very hard for his success.
