RIGHT SAID FRED

Right Said Fred is an English band based in London and formed by brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass in 1989. Guitarist Rob Manzoli joined the duo in 1990. The group has achieved multi-platinum status and has also won two Ivor Novello Awards – for "I'm Too Sexy" (1991) and "Deeply Dippy" (1992). In 1993, Right Said Fred was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group.

 

Prior to forming Right Said Fred, the Fairbrass brothers had been playing music since the late 1970s: as part of a band called The Actors, the brothers had toured with Suicide and supported Joy Division at the Factory club in Manchester.  The Fairbrass brothers formed the group in 1989, with Richard on lead vocals and bass and Fred on guitar. Prior to forming the group, Richard was employed as a session bassist for artists including Boy George, Mick Jagger and David Bowie, and appears as the bass guitarist in Bowie's short film Jazzin' for Blue Jean.
