  Shaun Ryder: The 80s and 90s are a blur Shaun Ryder has admitted he has a hazy memory of the 80s and 90s.Shaun Ryder says the 80s and the 90s are one big "blur".

Shaun Ryder , frontman of the 80 s and 90 s bands Happy Mondays and Black Grape, has been fascinated by UFOs for years, ever since he spotted one when he was a young kid so in this eagerly awaited series on the History channel he goes on the ultimate road trip to investigate potential alien

The 80 s and 90 s were important decades in music history. Some of the best acoustic rock ballads and power ballads performed by bands and artists came in this era. Here’s a list of the best from that glam age of music.

Shaun Ryder says the 80s and the 90s are one big "blur".

The 54-year-old rocker is set to perform at Shiiine On Weekender at Butlin's Arena, Minehead in November with his band the Happy Mondays, along with Levellers, Pop Will Eat Itself, Jim Bob (Carter USM) and The Woodentops, in a celebration of the very best of 80s and 90s Indie and Dance music.

However, the 'Step On' hitmaker - who was addled on drugs and booze back then - admits he doesn't have much of a recollection of what went down back then, except for their trips to Brazil.

In February 1991, Happy Mondays famously played at the Maracanã Stadium in Rio de Janeiro and meet Ronnie Biggs, an English thief, known for his role in the Great Train Robbery of 1963, for his escape from prison in 1965.

Shaun Ryder was the poster boy for rock & roll excess in the late ' 80 s and early ' 90 s , at least in the U.K. As the potty-mouthed, drug-using leader of the Happy Mondays, Ryder was voted most likely to become an international star as well as the next rock & roll casualty in pre-Brit-pop Great Britain.

Shaun William George Ryder (born 23 August 1962) is an English musician and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer of the Happy Mondays and Black Grape. He was the runner-up of the tenth series of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "Well, I tell you, I can remember the 60s more than I can remember the 80s and the 90s.

"They are just a blur. We had a couple of good times in Brazil, you would have to give me something specific. I was eight years old in the 60s, but I can remember it a lot better than the 90s."

Ryder says their set at Shiiine On will be much like their 30th anniversary tour, all of the hits from their back catalogue of five studio albums.

Asked what punters at the adult weekend extravaganza can expect, he said: "We are doing something from all the albums. It's the 30th anniversary of 'Squirrel and G-Man Twenty Four Hour Party People Plastic Face Carnt Smile (White Out)' that is the name of the tour that we are doing. So we are going to be doing bits from all of the albums actually. It's a greatest hits album set."

Shiiine On / Butlin's Live Music Weekends is a festival for grown-ups who don't want to trudge around in the mud!

It takes place from November 10 to November 13.

PSG line up move for Arsenal's Perez .
Paris Saint-Germain will reportedly target out of favour Arsenal striker, Lucas Perez this summer. Goal reports that the Spanish striker is a target for the French club and Perez himself wants to leave the Gunners. Perez only joined Arsenal in the summer from Deportivo La Coruna but has been unable to hold down a regular starting spot and has often been played out of position. Despite injuries to both Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud throughout the season, Arsene Wenger has often preferred to use Alexis Sanchez through the middle as a lone striker and play Perez out wide. PSG manager Unai Emery is thought to be a huge fan of the striker and even tried to sign him before he joined Arsenal in last summer’s transfer window. Despite scoring seven goals this season, Perez wants out of the Emirates and Emery is hoping the Spaniard can take the goalscoring burden off of the shoulders of Edinson Cavani next season.
