    Goldie is releasing his "hard-hitting" memoir 'All Things Remembered'

    The British drum and bass legend is bringing out his tell-all tome on November 2 through Faber and Faber and he has promised it will leave no detail out from his life, including his beginnings being raised in children's homes through to his work as a graffiti artist in the 1980s and the release of his 1995 debut album 'Timeless', considered a classic of the dance music genre.

    Announcing his book, he said: "'All Things Remembered is not just the story of how and why, it's everything from the children's homes to the Whispering Wheels roller-disco to rolling with the graffiti kings of New York to writing with David Bowie to reinventing myself as the Dorian Gray of breakbeat."

    UK publisher Faber describes the book as an "uncensored, hard-hitting" and "an explosive story of abuse, revenge, graffiti, gold teeth, sawn-off shotguns, car crashes, hot yoga, absent fatherhood, and redemption through reality TV".

    The book will follow the release of 'The Journey Man', Goldie's first album since 1998, which is set to drop on June 16.

    Goldie, 51, became one of the biggest music stars on the 90s and was friends with Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, whom he collaborated on the 1998 single 'Temper, Temper' from his second LP 'Saturnz Return'. The same LP also contained the track 'Truth' which featured the late David Bowie.

    The dance music producer didn't just limit himself to the studio and embarked on acting career appearing as a henchman in 1999 James Bond film 'The World Is Not Enough' opposite 007 Pierce Brosnan and later he had a role as gangster Angel Hudson in British soap opera 'EastEnders'.

    Goldie - real name Clifford Joseph Price - has also appeared in several reality TV shows including 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2002 and BBC ballroom competition 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2010.
