I have not been to any of the gigs this year Sad but as a (bedroom) guitarist, I'd really like to hear your opinions. I am a big fan of his work with Weller and Ocean Colour Scene but did he cut the mustard in The Specials?

A long, long time ago - Terry, Jerry, Roddy, Brad, Horace and Lynval were together under the same roof to pick up an award. And Lynval said it took all of them to make it work. (All the original members of the specials had their part to play). It would have been great if there had been a real reunion.

Steve is probably a lovely guy and he does loves of speedy chord changes and turns up on time etc but, he doesn't look the part and he has no stage presence let alone an edge, or a sense of danger. The thing about Roddy was 1) he was an original and 2) he was a misfit (a rocker in a mod band), 3) he was the only one, aside from Jerry, who could write a fully formed song.
But, let's be honest in the current state of things it doesn't really matter

I thought he had a real presence on stage , Played superbly and added much stronger backing vocals

At this stage I don't think it matters who steps in for who. As the saying goes,'It's like re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic'.
