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.
