ROCK writer, controversial columnist, TV critic, author, singer and friend to the stars Garry Bushell is known by many people, but very few know much about the private man behind his outspoken public image.

Now, in his new book Bushell On The Rampage, he reveals it all – and we have four copies to give away.

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 The Gonads, 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.

Bushell On The Rampage is out now on Apex Publishing, but to be in with a chance of winning one of four copies, just answer this simple question: Q) What is the name of Garry Bushell’s punk band?
