Publishing bosses have sent pop icon an open letter, begging him to follow through on his plans to write an autobiography. The former frontman of has contemplated a memoir in the past, but always backed down before signing a publishing deal.

His procrastination has prompted Lee Brackstone, an editor at publishing house Faber & Faber, to take to the company's blog, urging the singer to reconsider revealing all about his life and career. Brackstone writes, "I have been trying to persuade you of the virtues and wisdom of this for some years now. ...We feel very strongly that you belong in this company. To me (and to many of my colleagues) you are already in this company."

He adds, "It would be the fulfillment of my most pressing and persistent publishing dream to see that 'ff' (Faber & Faber) sewn into the spine of your life. Just any other publisher won't do. You deserve Faber and the love we can give you. History demands it; destiny commands it."
