Let's face it: your GP has never swallowed a bumble bee at 70mph; been declared clinically dead (twice); presided over The Most Dysfunctional Family in Western Civilisation; endured weeks of rabies injections (thanks to a misunderstanding with a bat); received a mistaken diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease; broken his neck in a quad bike accident; survived a (near) direct hit by a plane; or personally tested every drug known to modern science.

But here I am: ready to tell my story, in my own words, for the first time.
A lot of it ain't gonna be pretty. I've done some bad things in my time. But I ain't the devil. I'm just John Osbourne: a working class kid from Aston, who quit his job in the factory and went looking for a good time.
