Right Said Fred - Did You Know?

Right Said Fred - Did You Know?December 10, 2018

Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about English band, Right Said Fred.




Right Said Fred is an English band that was formed in 1989 in London and consists of brothers Fred and Richard Fairbrass and guitarist Rob Manzoli who joined the two in 1990.

Right Said Fred's most known and popular song, "I'm Too Sexy" has an interesting story to it. Brothers Richard and Fred Fairbrass were managers at a London dance studio called The Dance Attic. There, the two came across lots of posing and narcissism.

One day, inspired by his dance studio experience, Richard Fairbrass decided spontaneously to take his shirt off and started singing, "I'm too sexy for my shirt."

The brothers thought that it was hilarious and worked up the song "I'm Too Sexy" around the phrase. Music Promoter Guy Holmes, heard the demo, contacted the band and had them remix the song into a dance track.

Holmes then shopped the song to record labels, but had no takers, so he decided to set up his own label, Tug Records, and released the song which became a huge hit once the BBC started playing it.

Right Said Fred has achieved multi-platinum status and has won two Ivor Novello Awards for "I'm Too Sexy" and "Deeply Dippy". In 1993, the band was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group.
