What a fantastic read. Well done Horace. Sounds like there's some issues still there though. Sorry Rod/Jett, but I always preferred Terry singing Concrete Jungle.

Thanks Horace for a great read, a real insight into some issues within the band.

A big shame, however if Roddy is rowing with Lynval and Horace is talking about his relationship with Terry perhaps we will never be privileged with watching the greatest band ever again.

Pissed off and going a bed!

It's what makes The Specials fantastic live. Smile

Great to know what the ideas were behind the European and UK tours and the future.

I understands now certain descisions better, and wish the guys first of all a lot of fun in writing and recording new material. And hope it will work out. But most important I hope the guys have fun, so that between an argument some irritation her and there, something magicical can happen.

They're like a real family, would have been funny seeing a cartoon (The Simpsons or Family Guy) of them called "the Specials snowbound at Christmas, with JD crashing in."

Very Happy Cool Very Happy Cool Very Happy Cool
