I was shocked to learn of his abduction.

R.I.P.

Likewise, pretty shocking stuff.

Our Lips are Sealed his cover and the original one of my fav tracks. When you're most of our ages , fav tracks means being in the top few hundred I think - Gangsters probs in that category too. Deffo becoming a tad concerned at the number in my age cohort dropping off currently

Think "Our Lips are Sealed" was jointly written with one of The Go-go's, so wasn't really a cover.  Preferred the Go-go's version, but pretty sure I heard it first, and that always biasses you.  Have heard The Funboy Three's version multiple times since last night and keep thinking they should play the better one.  Don't think anyone has played a Specials song on 6 music whilst I was listening either.

Hadn't appreciated it was a joint thing. I'd forgotten a few specials tracks and found quite a few others to enjoy last night. Nice trip down memory lane

More on Terry Hall;



Terry Hall was receiving chemotherapy after the cancer from his pancreas spread to his liver and he developed diabetes, however the treatment failed and he died on Sunday at the age of 63. His bandmate Horace Panter revealed in a Facebook post how he had wanted to keep his diagnosis private while the group were preparing to record a new reggae album in Los Angeles. But the singer, who pioneered the British ska scene, became seriously ill just weeks before they were due to fly to the US. Horace revealed: 'Terry had the framework for 8 tunes. Confidence was high. We were set to meet up with Nikolaj [Larsen, Specials keyboardist] and make magic. This was in September. Terry e-mails everyone and says he's in bed with a stomach bug and can't do the first week of pre-production sessions. No big deal, we can knock everything back a week. We're not due to fly out until November 4th.' Horace said it soon emerged it was life-threatening and that Hall immediately started chemotherapy, however he died weeks later.

Think "Our Lips are Sealed" was jointly written with one of The Go-go's, so wasn't really a cover.  Preferred the Go-go's version, but pretty sure I heard it first, and that always biasses you.  Have heard The Funboy Three's version multiple times since last night and keep thinking they should play the better one.  Don't think anyone has played a Specials song on 6 music whilst I was listening either.

Hadn't appreciated it was a joint thing. I'd forgotten a few specials tracks and found quite a few others to enjoy last night. Nice trip down memory lane

Thanks to Twitter I discovered that he sent some lyrics to Jane Weidlin of the Go-go's after a brief relationship whilst they were supporting the Fun Boy Three on tour.  She added to them and that became the Go-Go's first hit.  

On reading this, I realised there was a good chance I saw The Go-Go's back in the day.  I have no real memory of it though.  Edit.  Just realised the dates don't work, so that might be why I can't remember them!

World Cup winner George Cohen has passed away. It is often argued that he was the best right back ever to play for England.

His only club was Fulham, & he played for them for his entire career.

This very famous photo arose when George was about to swap shirts with an Argentinian opponent, but Alf Ramsay was having none of it.

Our more senior readers & viewers will surely remember John Bird & John Fortune who did a series called "Long Johns".

20 or 30 years on, they remain as funny & incisive as the day they were first seen.
