Veteran crooner Barry Manilow is planning to make an audio autobiography, as he has been spending years archiving his life on tape.

The COPACABANA heart-throb had his life story SWEET LIFE: ADVENTURES ON THE WAY TO PARADISE published in the 1980s.

But he insists it's time for a sequel.

He says, "I have tapes and tapes of recordings of my life. There are years and years of cassettes.

"I saved everything and now have a warehouse full of them so, little by little, I've been putting my life story on audio."
