About the Author

Garry Bushell was born in 1955 and grew up in south east London. The son of a fireman, Garry was a somewhat rebellious child who grew up to be a controversial critic, political activist and commentator. He started his career with the Socialist worker and went on to work as a music journalist being one of the first to write about The Clash, The Jam, U2 and many more. Garry managed the Cockney Rejects and formed his own band The Gonads who have now been playing together for over 30 years. When he left the music press, Garry went on to make a name for himself on Fleet Street. His award-winning TV column Bushell on the Box has been running for 22 years and has been published in The Sun, The Daily Star, The People and The Daily Star Sunday and his successful TV programme of the same name reached the number one spot on ITV s Night Network for two seasons. Garry s subsequent appearances on a number of television shows from Celebrity Squares to the Southbank Show have helped to turn him into a household name. Garry has six children and is happily married to second wife country singer Leah McCaffrey.

Cor blimey, apples and pears, the boy Bushell has done it again, another `tell it like it is' book, only this time with his larger than life life story thrown into the mix as well.
I gotta be honest, this book made me laugh more than any other opus over recent years, although given the serious nature of the books I tend to read this shouldn't be too much of a shock.
Even if you don't like the bloke, or his cunningly planted opinions, he deserves respect for airing his linen, dirty or otherwise, in public, as he has always managed to write in an entertaining manner and usually with something interesting to say. This Bush is definitely on fire, with his autobiography dredging up his past, be it good, bad or forgotten.
In many ways it is three books in one. On the one hand we read about Garry's middle-class upbringing at private school, not to mention his street battles against those who didn't like his posh accent, with the end result being his lapsing into self-denial and championing various working-class causes, such as the Oi! scene of the late 1970s. The next section of the book concentrates on his life on the road in the early/mid 1980s, with numerous stories of bodily fluids, alcoholic fluids and cleaning fluids (Domestos - it kills 99 per cent of all germs, apparently, as one poor roadie found out). Lastly, we read about his career in the media big time, rubbing shoulders with the rich, famous and...err...The Blood - who seem to turn up every couple of pages or so! Personally I found this the most interesting bit, and his verbal sparring with the likes of Sun editor Kelvin MacKenzie were revealing of the pressures newspaper columnists worked under, especially if sanity was only a distant relative.
All manner of characters turn up in this rampage, punk and Oi!

Format: Hardcover
I started off as a `lukewarm` fan of Garry`s but after reading "Bushell On The Box" by punk poet and author Garry Johnson I became a fanatical follower.
That excellent biog by the writer of the punk classic "Suburban Rebels2 revealed that Bushell was much more than a loudmouth ranter.
He is a family man, devoted dad, wonderful writer and more then anything a genuine `man of the people`.
This autobiography confirms what Garry Johnson stated in the excellent "Bushell On The Box".
In that brilliant biog Garry Johnson said: "The luvvies hate Bushell because like Princess Di he has the common touch".
Bushell may have a skinhead haircut and a Cockney accent but his brain is on a par with Stephen Fry and Stephen Hawkins.
This book is proof that Garry Bushell is one of our greatest living writers - a true working class hero.
His story involves sex, drugs, rock&roll, gangsters, soap stars, politicians and Punk Rock.
This is without doubt the best book I have read since The Punk Poet by Garry Johnson (Google that title and you will see that I am paying this book a massive tribute)
If you like having a laugh, partying and Punk Rock Rock - you will love this book and love GARRY BUSHELL.
He aint just the best tv critic since Clive James - he is much more - the bloke who discovered The Cockney Rejects, The Buzz Kids, Frankie Flame and The Business.
Garry Bushell is The Godfather of New Punk and my ambition is to meet the great man and living legend.
If he does a book signing in Essex I will be there.
