Add Lynval to the illustrious list of 2-Tone era musicians who have written books about their personal and musical experiences playing ska. The guitarist and prime mover behind The Specials successful reunion, is collaborating with Paul 'Willo' Williams, author of the definitive history of the band 'You're Wondering Now -- The Specials from Conception to Reunion' on a memoir. Read an interview with Willo to get the scoop...

Next to take under you're wing PW is Roddy!!

Best seller all over it Laughing

Out of the 7/8 2-Tone era books I own, without sounding to much of an arse monkey Willo .. you're book has to be the best for history/reference.. will there be a new edition with these last couple of years to talk about ??

Nah I doubt it mate, there are a few tweaks that could be done and a new angle but thats it for me with YWN. Enjoyin compiling this one and no doubt Rod would be a prime candidate for the next book from the band.They could all do one and each one would be as varied and interesting as the next.

Great news.

I haven't read Neville's book yet, it's next on my list. For sure I love to hear Lynval's story.
I'm curious to know things about the FB3 period.

But also as being a son from immigrants coming from Surinam (it lies between the two Guyana's) and coming and growing up in a pre-multicultural Holland, there will be lot of things Ï can relate to. I can't wait.

If my health will let me I want to interview both my parents for a personal documentary about them, working title: The Forgotten Immigrants.

Cool Smile

7 Specials...7 Angles....7 Books........Good luck Willo ...must be great to work with someone with Lynvals infectious positivity.

I have a great photo of Lynval taken at end of Leeds performance - facing the appreciative crowd - triumphant - arms aloft - ....will mail it to you when my own laptop is fixed...might be of use.

Very Happy
