Hi Regis, glad to have you along for this evening's heavy ride

8:03 PM, January 21st, 2023
We lost so many people in 2022, especially sad to lose Terry Hall as I really love his music and especially his often overlooked solo albums which were perfect pop records. Remember seeing the Specials in the early 80’s and they were spectacular. Also remember when The Members played here at Barrymores and they were a great live band and we lost Nicky Tesco as well.

8:07 PM, January 21st, 2023
We also lost Iain Templeton in December who played with Shack, The La's and Michael Head & The Strands. Martin Duffy also died in December and he played with so many bands including Felt, Primal Scream, The Charlatans, Sheer and this lessor known band Fly -
