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 ...

Took a few listens but I really like it.

Very cool and assured vibe.

Great teaser for the LP.

Only negative I can see is that at 5 minutes long it may not get the radio plays.

So apparently there is a photo of the Stones & the Specials backstage? I've never seen it published anywhere so if anyone has it please share. A nice little moment in time.

Thanks

Cheers for the recommendation Trojan, I will be checking this out.

Was up in Belfast recently and the buzz in the city is unbelievable. It's a fantastic place now.

Nice one Mike. Thanks.

"Do The Frog" ? Well Horace laughed anyway ....

So that's another piece of my childhood gone.

Big Cyrille, what a player and icon he was.

And by all accounts as big a hero off pitch as on it.

Very sad this morning to hear of his passing.

I'd pay good money to see Ed Sheeran and Harry Styles fight to the death.

Roman Gladiator style.

Winner gets to fight a starving tiger.

Lighten up lads FFS ??

Nobody's twisting anybody's arm to go to see the band.

If you don't like it then don't go.

If you do and you have the cash to spare then go.

Simple No ?
