He'd recently published a new novel - Raka - Die Roman, which is for sale on and in all good SA bookstores.

He'd embraced new free publishing of blogging. Read regular updates and post messages

He'd written a funny new song about Eskom and the power cuts called "Fokkol", which he played when we recorded the podcast interview. It was the top MP3 download on last year, and sold like crazy as a Mobile download too

He's come in a lifetime from Suicide to Suburbia via Niemandsland. Koos Kombuis's autobiography (it's short but informative) is a great online read.

Here's your chance to ask Koos your own questions about the past, the future, South Africa and everything else. We'll put them to him when we do the interview and you can listen to the answers he gives you.

Koos Kombuis first became famous in the 1980s, when his anti-Apartheid lyrics and rock 'n roll lifestyle made headlines and landed him in some hot water with "the authorities". He also inspired a generation of English and Afrikaans rebels, and changed many people's one dimensional view of Afikaners. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
