It often happens with certain artists when, due to their large fanbase, a release will chart very highly early on but unless a single (or the general buzz) catches on with other record buyers, the cha ...

He's either brave or foolish to say what he's said, depending upon your bias. John Barnes' take on it pretty much falls into line with my own views.

The one thing I will also say is we live in an i ...

He says regrets the revenge aspects of his action. He has stated that with his upbringing in Northern Ireland makes him fully aware of futility of revenge killings. However, not unless I have missed ...

I'm guessing people who have followed Terry's career from 1979 to today will appreciate the album more than Specials only fans but I could be wrong?



I think that might just be the problem. It ...
