So sad to hear the news about Roger. I had the pleasure of meeting him once and he was such a nice guy.

I know others have said it, but this just isn't The Specials anymore for me. Bands have to move on but this?!! It just isn't the music I wanted to hear from the band I discovered in 1979 and grew up ...

I just don't know what to make of it to be honest. It just isn't The Specials any more for me and I used to be a huge fan. I know they have to move on and they can't leap around like they did in 197 ...

I am excited as it is The Specials. I've followed them for almost 40 years and it's been a brilliant 40 years. But for me it just isn't THE Specials as was. The band is more than just a name and it ...

It just isn't 'The Specials' any more. They'd be better off performing as the Fun Boy Three. It's such a shame and so sad to see it all end up like this. All the excitement of the 2009 reunion tour ...

Great news and very unexpected. Biggest surprise of all though is the fact that they will be playing in Scunthorpe.

The Specials MK2 just wasn't The Specials as I wanted them to be and was anything but what the original band had been. I'm not sure what to make of the band as it is now. Perhaps it's just best to r ...

It was part of a free single given away with the original More Specials and should have been included.

That's just not on Jett. I have the single which came free with More Specials. Its a great song and should have been included. I can't think of any reason for not including it.

Great to see the guys again on Top Of The Pops on BBC4 tonight from 1980 when they were number 1!! Great memories of a great era.

It's not only the best Specials record but one of THE best ever records. An absolute classic. Still as good now as it ever was and that live version just managed to capture everything. I didn't thi ...

Kevin Rowland. What can you say? Not a lot. He should be grateful that someone still remembers who he is and wants to interview him. He makes reference to Come On Eileen being 30 plus years ago. Isn' ...
