Music journalist and the legendary frontman of Del Amitri discuss what happens after that first flush of fame.

The desire for adulation is a light that never goes out. We live in a culture obsessed by the notion of fame - the heedless pursuit of it; the almost obligatory subsequent fallout. But what's it like to actually achieve it, and what happens when fame abruptly passes, and shifts, as it does, onto someone else?

Exit Stage Left features tales of drug addiction, bankruptcy, depression and divorce, but also of optimism, a genuine love of the craft, humility and hope. This is a candid, laugh-out-loud and occasionally shocking look at what happens when the brightest stars fall back down to earth.

Featuring brand new interviews with the likes of: Shaun Ryder, Robbie Williams, Roisin Murphy, Stewart Copeland, Billy Bragg, Wendy James, Alex Kapranos, Joan Armatrading, Lisa Maffia, Tim Booth, Bill Drummond, David Gray, and Justin Hawkins.

The author Nick Duerden will be joined on stage by Justin Currie, lead singer and songwriter with Del Amitri who released their debut album in 1985 and have enjoyed success throughout the world ever since – they released a new album Fatal Mistakes last summer, concluding their accompanying tour at the Glasgow Barrowlands.
