>>> Give-A-Way! >>>

UPDATE: This Give-A-Way is now closed!

Gerry Laffy has certainly been around the block. From his early days with UK glamsters Girl (with future Leps guitarist Phil Collen) to his more recent and very impressive solo albums, he's been there, done that and ripped the t-shirt. What you may not know is that Gerry is also something of an artist, and he's been generous enough to give us a couple of original pieces to give away to you lot.

Two winners will receive a piece of original Gerry Laffy art, plus copies of both of his solo albums ("Wrecked But Not Crushed" and "Just A Little Blurred") plus a copy of "Girl - Live At The Paris Theatre London 1980", a surprisingly good bootleg that has resurfaced after many years. All are signed.

Three runners up will just receive the albums.

The two pieces of art up for grabs are "Girl" and "Cyberfag", both framed and signed.

Entry is very easy, providing you can access Facebook! All you need to do is go to Gerry Laffy's art page, "like" the page and look at the photos.

Then, just answer this simple question:

Name any of the comic book characters Gerry Laffy has used in his artwork.

Send your answer to alan "at" rockunited.com by August 15th. This year.
