Alright, Richard Dixon, 45 years old, fan of the Specials since back in the day.

I was a punk, then a mod and for a little while a skin, the Specials were pretty much a constant through it all. Still have a scooter, but I not in anyway a mod now. Mind you I still wear Fred Perry, but that sort of transcends of that. I used to wear Ben Sherman's when I was 14, but it feels like they've lost their way.

Anyhow, hello to you all!

Thanks guys. I'm seeing them at the Ally Pally gig. Can't wait, I've watch a lot of video footage of recent gigs on You Tube and I'e been amazed at the energy levels! They look as if jump around every bit s much as they did in the early days.

Hey Dickie, get stuck in. It's the best 24hr forum on the net.
But before i get my coat i have a couple of burning questions:

Are you related to Dixon of Dock Green? How about Richard Nixon?

Dixon of Dock Green was my probation officer, Nixon was my grandad, but he spelt his name different.

How many people will be at the pre-gig thing at Ally Pally, do you know?
