Hi Roddy, first post so be nice to me!! Loved the specials since 80, I properly fell in love in with the music in 82 when I was 11 yrs old, I always admired you and Sir Horace though I always thought that you Brad and Lynval did all the hard work! Anyway to get to the point I watched the Glastonbury show on you tube the other day and compared it to the 2011 tour (I saw you in Glasgow - one of my lifetime highlights I might add - bucket list tick!) and the difference was quite stark you add so much to the overall performance, have you been allowed to enhance the sound/vocals on this tour and if not why not?? I also think you singing concrete jungle feels right? Since I googled you and found this website I have since discovered your other side wow you have some great tunes and a great sound with your other group - thanks and be yourself!! PS looking forward to Glasgow on the 10th May
Well that was the way i played mostly but not the only i could play as ild done my apprentiship for many years b4 around the Midlands Workingmens Clubs in Showbands and the like. Actually on "I cant stand it" Mor Specials Album i wanted too play some laid back jazzy guitar but Dammers being Dammers any suggestion hed want the opposite!
