EXCLUSIVE – Rolf Harris’s vile jail song: In shock letter from cell, shamed star reveals ‘country rock’ lyrics that damn his sex victims as greedy ‘wenches’

Above is a specially animated version of Dave Lee Travis’s rendition of what must surely have been his favourite song as he exploited his celebrity status, to indulge in various sexual assaults with under age girls, that have led to him being obliged to attend court, & serve some considerable time in one of her majesty’s prisons. But what of Rolf Harris? Well, it would seem he has not been idle either. Here is Mr Harris posing with a CBE the queen once gave him (it is back in her hands since it’s now obvious he didn’t deserve it).


Rolf Harris has written a song from his prison cell castigating his victims as money-grabbing mercenaries intent on claiming compensation.

Harris, 84, targeted girls as young as seven, but in his lyrics he displays no remorse for his crimes. Instead, he describes the victims whose lives he wrecked as ‘woodworms’ who have ‘climbed up out of the woodwork from 40 years ago’.

He sneers at the women he indecently assaulted, saying: ‘Perhaps you think you’re pretty still, some perfumed sultry wench?’


The words are contained in a letter Harris sent from Her Majesty’s Prison Stafford to someone close to him. He was so appalled at its contents that he passed it to The Mail on Sunday. In the letter Harris insists he will record the song ‘the moment I get out’, arrogantly assuming he will get parole and walk free ‘towards the end of 2017’.


Astonishingly, the former children’s entertainer also talks of ‘the injustice’ of his incarceration and of his cushy life behind bars. Here is Mr Harris, before things became a little ‘unjust’ for his liking, receiving an honorary degree from Liverpool Hope University. But I digress, back to Mr Harris’s ‘pending’ country music release.

His loathsome song prompted Liz Dux, a solicitor from Slater and Gordon, who represents his victims, to call for him to be denied parole, especially as many of his victims have spent years in therapy to cope with the aftermath of his abuse.

Musician Roy Gaynor had child abuse images – including 15 minute film


A MUSICIAN and songwriter had a USB stick containing more than 300 indecent images of children in his pocket when police raided his home, a court has heard.

Roy Gaynor told officers: “Everything you’re looking for is on there” moments after they visited the property in Sea Road, Boscombe, as part of an investigation into the downloading of indecent photographs of child sex abuse victims.

The 68-year-old had a total of 323 pictures and moving images, including 152 in category A – the most serious of the divisions – as well as 26 in category B and 145 in category C. One distressing film timed at more than six minutes long involved the abuse of a baby less than a year old, while another film of more than 15 minutes in duration involved a youngster under the age of 12.

Gaynor had downloaded the footage and images between March 2011 and March 2015, and told police he had sourced the images “erratically”, admitting he found them “titillating”.

He said he had started accessing such images following the death of his eldest son from a brain tumour 10 years ago.

At a sentence hearing before a judge at Bournemouth Crown Court, prosecutor Carolyn Branford-Wood said officers from Dorset Police‘s Paedophile Online Investigation Team (POLIT) attended Gaynor’s home after receiving information from the National Crime Agency. “A search was commenced at the address and in the right-hand pocket of the trousers [Gaynor] was wearing, a USB device was found,” she said.

Gaynor, who admitted 16 counts of making indecent images at a preliminary hearing in March, describes himself as a guitarist, singer and ‘prolific songwriter’ with more than 30 years of experience performing with bands and orchestras on website Starnow.

Earlier this year, the defendant was seeking performers for a new musical called Up the Ressie, said to be loosely based on his own childhood experiences in 1950s London.

Anne Brown, mitigating for Gaynor, said the defendant has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity since the death of his son.

“The defendant recognises that he needs help,” she said.

“He recognised [that] from the moment the police knocked on the door [and he had] the crashing realisation he had done something very wrong.”

Ms Brown said Gaynor ploughed £82,000 of his own money into producing a musical with the express intention that all money raised would be donated to the Brain Tumour Trust, a charity for which he has helped to raise £42,000 in less than a decade.

Recorder Nicholas Haggan QC expressed concern that Gaynor recruits children for parts in his musicals online.

However, Ms Brown said there is “no suggestion whatsoever he has been contacting children on the internet for any nefarious or sexually-linked purpose”.

Mr Haggan – who said the images were “disturbing, to put it neutrally” – sentenced Gaynor to a three-year community order, during which time he will work with specialists from the Thames Valley Sex Offender Programme.

He will also been subjected to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order for the next five years.
