Edwyn Collins is an incredible man. His recovery from a near-fatal brain hemorrhage and the music he has produced since is astounding.

Good Question doing the rounds.

Can you name the only song that ALL members of the Specials and ALL members of the Sex Pistols played on? Clue: Terry Hall & Johnny Rotten shared lead vocals.

I think I'll avoid that Q Magazine interview.

The animosity between current and ex Band Members is becoming more and more pronounced as the years go by. As he gets older Terry reminds me more and ...

Just terrible sad news.

As with everyone else who met Roger I found him a friendly and down to earth fella with plenty of time to chat. As he was probably the youngest of the 2-Tone Musicians it r ...
