DC, Tel Currie, Freddie Foreman and
Tel Currie's next book promises to be a blinder of a "must
have". The working title is "The Underworld ... From the Inside
Out" and it should be released before the end of the year.
Here's what some of the chaps have to say about our friend Tel
and the book:
SENIOR - THE DON of DONS
I have known Telboy for about ten years now and I am
proud and pleased to have a pal like him. He has
total loyalty to his own and has always stood up for
his principles. In the ten years I have known him he
has always gone with the grain in the wood and never
against it and thatıs the right way.
I know for sure that when he finishes this book, he
will only say what he feels and never be influenced
by what others may think. Good luck Telboy and
always remember: CRIME DOESN'T PAY BUT THE HOURS ARE
JOEY PYLE snr.
THE ONLY ENGLISHMAN EVER TO BE ACCEPTED BY THE TOP
ORGANISED CRIME BOSSES IN AMERICA.
A lot of things have been said about Tel Currie, ie.
he's staunch, solid, more than capable in a row,
he's always there for you, and if he's your friend,
he's a friend for life, all these things are true.
But for me, in these days of the so called "young
turks", he has that rare quality, which we don't see
much of, Respect. He gives it where he feels it's
deserved, and doesn't mince his words when he feels
none is warranted.
I along with a lot of others admire him for it, me
personally I like him, but more than that, I
Good Luck Tel
THE ULTIMATE UNDERWORLD LEGEND AND FOLK HERO. THE
ORIGINAL CELEB GANGSTER.
Since coming home from my stretch for handling money
from the Security Express Robbery then settling away
from London , I lost touch with a lot of friends of
mine. One man I am in constant touch with though is
Tel Currie. We speak about two to three times a week
and through Tel I get to hear about everything
that's going on. It was Tel who reunited myself with
my old pal Roy Shaw. Roy, Tel and myself went for a
lovely meal and a good old chat. I consider Tel a
very good friend, as do all the respected Faces. A
lot of people will tell you all the time that they
are there if you ever need them and it's mostly
always lip service but with Tel you know he means it
and you know he is fiercely loyal to his friends. Be
ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED MEN EVER TO COME OUT OF
LONDON. IN THE SIXTIES,
THE MEDIA DUBBED HIM "THE TORTURE GANG BOSS" AND
"THE MAN THE KRAY'S FEARED"
Tel Currie is a true and trusted friend of myself
and my family. We have worked together on various
things and made a good team. Tel's a throwback to
the old days and that's a high compliment believe
me. He is a young man who conducts himself like a
real man of honor, and gentleman. In no way does he
represent the young scum we have on our streets
today. So much do I trust Tel that I have given him
full access to all the papers of my so called
"Torture Trial", the REAL story of which he will
cover in this book. Tel Currie is so much more than
a journalist, the type who write so many books about
our people without a clue what they are talking
about and declare themselves experts.
Tel IS one of our people. He is respected, liked and
trusted by the major players in the business, I
would never state something like that if it were not
true. He has gone well out of his way to help his
friends, even men like Charlie Bronson and Ronnie
Biggs who are of course locked up like animals. The
heat came on top for Tel when he tried helping me on
a bit of business. He could of easily rolled over
and most of today's plastic gangsters would of
squealed like pigs straight away when being
threatened with heavy bird. Trying to get this man
to turn rat though is a complete waste of time, as
he once said to me "Charlie, I would rather choke to
death slowly on my own blood than be a grass!"
He has experienced things that most only read about
in fiction novels, he has seen it and done it. Now
he's going to tell you all about it.
your good pal
KING OF GLASGOW
I have known Tel for quite a while now and consider
him as one of our own.
Very few people get to know who the real firms are
but Tel Currie is one of them because he is
Tel is very well connected and in this life you reap
what you sew and he will tell it how it is from the
people who are in the know.
Some call them Faces, The Chaps or even
Gangsters.....We quite simply call them Good-fellas
and if you're not then Tel will expose you to the
Break our code and Tel will break your balls when he
has you on his hit-list......
Well done Tel a truly fantastic eyeopener!
