Présentation de l'éditeur
His special series of The Gibbo Files was such a sensation when it first appeared in his Newcastle newspaper the Evening Chronicle that this book is the result of a public clamour for more. Naturally, Gibson reveals many, many new inside stories never told before – tales that are hilarious on occasions, dripping in drama on others.
Gibbo has shared many a night of ribaldry with Gazza and George Best; spent time chewing the fat with Prince Albert of Monaco and Jerry Lee Lewis; secretly set up a This Is Your Life programme behind Jackie Milburn’s back; survived a mid-air plane crisis with Wimbledon champion Bjorn Borg; went to jail with Steve Cram and Brendan Foster (not for the reason you think); had Olympic legend Teofilo Stevenson, full of rum, wave a gun in his face... and was best man when SuperMac married a Geordie pop star’s ex-missus.
A hack who has enjoyed an amazing professional career, he was also at the epicentre of the Munich Massacre when terrorists hijacked the Olympics and was an insider as part of Sir John Hall’s Magpie Group that took over Newcastle United after a bloody two-year power battle.
