What a strange bunch of people the remaining 'Specials' are.

Here's an idea guys, scrape together what dignity you have left and put the name of a once great band to rest once and for all.

Roddy was still in the band at the time Neville had this epileptic fit, I would of thought he for sure would of helped/ been concerned (like they all should of anyway)- but apparently not according to this interview.

I thought them two (Rod & Nev) were friends?

its like a dysfunctional family in a soap opera

But then what do they do?
(Don't get me wrong I only wanted a genuine reunion that included Dick and Rico and new songs from Jerry, Terry and Roddy)
But the current situation is that a few times a year the remaining 4 get paid a decent amount of money to visit interesting countries and play a bunch of songs they still quite like at a festival. I imagine they'll carry on till the offers get less interesting. I seem to remember Roddy saying something along the lines of - you get offered big money to play the hits in stadiums or no money to play your new songs in a toilet.

Stop performing as a Specials cabaret act perhaps?

In the 80s when Terry and Lynval made the "Waiting" album. They needed 3 people to try and replace Jerry. They got Jane Wiedlin in to co-write a hit single, Nicky Holland to play keyboards and arrange the songs, David Byrne from Talking Heads to produce the songs etc and the tab was picked up by Chrysalis records who had money to burn on videos and promotion because Blondie and Spandau were making the label shitloads of cash. Horace Panter is friends with Pete Williams from Dexys. He rates Pete's solo stuff and once told me that the remaining Specials had watched the way Dexy's had re-invented themselves with interest. But, I can't help thinking if they were going to do that they'd have done it years ago. So I predict they'll carry on doing a few festivals around the world every year for as long as they are asked to play them

Didn't Terry Hall write Our Lips Our Sealed with Jane Wiedlin when he was still in The Specials and they were touring with The Go Go's?

I find the behaviour of the current band distasteful, but I think Neville's alright Arrow

Reminds me a bit of old Neil for some reason
