Andre Agassi talks sex, drugs and Brooke Shields

Andre Agassi talks sex, drugs and Brooke Shields in exclusive radio interview with Duncan Garner, Monday

Duncan Garner is ending his first month on the air on a high.  As the new host of RadioLIVE DRIVE he has had a very frank and honest interview with one of the greatest tennis players of all time.

Ahead of his scheduled appearances for Christchurch and Auckland (23rd and 24th January 2013) for The Mad Butcher presents An Evening with Andre Agassi.  Agassi talks candidly with Garner about his incredible life, ranging from his use of crystal-meth, his loneliness, the Brooke Shields years and wigs.

Garner said "I was pleasantly surprised, he wasn’t guarded at all. He didn't dodge one single question I threw at him.  He genuinely talks about sex, marriage, his battle with drugs and why he hated tennis - isn't that strange. 
He even talks about his hairpiece."

For the full interview, listen to RadioLIVE DRIVE with Duncan Garner, Monday 24th December between 4-5pm.
