STILL TOO SEXY - Surviving Right Said Fred: Richard & Fred Fairbrass in conversation with Joel McIver
About this Event

Richard and Fred Fairbrass, better known as Right Said Fred, scored a global Number 1 hit in 1991 with their debut single ‘I’m Too Sexy’, selling 30 million albums, being showered with industry awards, and earning plaudits from admirers such as Madonna and Prince.

Before that breakthrough, though, the brothers spent over a decade in London and New York, trying to make it in the music industry. Fred played guitar with Bob Dylan and Richard played bass in several David Bowie videos, with the brothers appearing on stage with Joy Division and Suicide, and on film with Mick Jagger.

Once fame hit, the good times rolled, the substances mounted up and the groupies formed an orderly queue, but it wasn’t long before the brothers realised that fame and fortune is not for everyone.

Still Too Sexy is their story, with a foreword by the legendary stunt motorcyclist Eddie Kidd, OBE.


We have two ticket options available: * Event Only and *Event with Discounted Book Combo deal - books will be available for collection at the Festival.

Our event will be followed by a dedicated signing event with Richard & Fred. RRP books will also be available for purchase on the day.


Richard Fairbrass and Fred Fairbrass are award-winning songwriters who have scored Number 1 hits in many countries, including three US Number 1s, three UK Number 1s, and a Number 1 in Japan. They were the first band since The Beatles to reach the Number 1 slot in the US with their debut single and have won two Ivor Novello Awards for songwriting and three BMI Awards. They have performed for the Queen, at the Bollywood Awards and at the 2006 World Cup in Germany, their global sales total 30 million, and their songs have been streamed over 100 million times on Spotify. Elements of ‘I’m Too Sexy’ have influenced songs by Taylor Swift and Drake in recent years, leading to a new generation of Right Said Fred listeners.


Joel McIver is the author of 35 books on popular music. He often appears on TV, radio and podcasts.
