British rocker Shaun Ryder has signed a deal to release his memoirs despite recently insisting he hardly remembers his hazy, drug-fueled days in the Happy Mondays. The star revealed he's regularly asked to pen his autobiography but admits his days of substance abuse had left him with a fuzzy memory of his heyday in the band.

He said, "I've been asked to write my autobiography, but I've not been interested. I'll do it in another 20 years' time. The only problem was I never kept a diary, so I'm going to have to use all the remaining brain cells to remember the Mondays days." However, publishing bosses at Transworld have persuaded Ryder to try and recall his colorful past and he will release the tell-all tome in the autumn.

He says, "I've been mitered (asked) for years to write my autobiography, but I've always said no because the timing never felt right. Plenty of other people have had their say on Happy Mondays, and now just felt like the right time to tell it like it really happened."
