Most people will have heard of Garry Bushell; rock writer, controversial columnist, TV critic, author, singer and friend to the stars, but very few know much about the private man behind his outspoken public image. This book provides a fascinating insight into the life of someone who is equally at home in the company of dockers and villains as rock idols and soap stars; but it is also an honest and moving account of the personal tragedy and pain that has made Garry who he is. Perhaps best known for his award-winning column Bushell on the Box, during his long and colourful career Garry has been hailed as 'the Godfather of Oi', toured America with his punk band, appeared on more than 2,000 television shows, penned two novels and even appeared in a gangster film. He has dated glamour girls, been fed heroin by Hanoi Rocks, and befriended Benny Hill and Barbara Windsor; he has been investigated by M15, stalked by an obsessive fan, had knives thrown at him by Freddie Starr and had his eye-brows shaved off by Ozzy Osbourne. He has also fathered five children and found lasting happiness with new country singer Leah McCaffrey. Garry's autobiography packs in all the highs and lows that have shaped his life to date. It is full of anecdotes and humour, and also provides a rare behind-the-scenes look at the world of print and television media - you simply won't be able to put it down.
