Saving Sapper McGrath
Kim McGrath sensed something was wrong, call it a mother's intuition. She just knew her son wasn't safe. But it still didn't ready her for the moment the Army came to tell her that son Curtis had been badly hurt in a roadside bomb explosion in Afghanistan. Curtis had lost both his legs. This week on SUNDAY Curtis is sitting up in a Brisbane Hospital bed telling an extraordinary story of survival. A brave Kiwi soldier who is coming back from the brink.

He's the cheeky bad boy of pop; has been for two decades. Now he's about to release his eighth studio album. It comes at a time this reformed womaniser, this self-confessed textbook addict and outrageously brilliant superstar is also embracing fatherhood. Tonight he's on SUNDAY and he unashamedly canvasses the lot.
