Is that the book "Ska'd For Life" you are reading bazza ??
Just curious because my daughters partner is a Specials fan and I was wondering whether he would enjoy reading that book. I've just bought him tickets for his birthday for the Specials 30th Anniversary for Liverpool in November

Hope you're well, Bazza. Yes, I recall that section of the book. I always take it with me when I'm traveling.

Bazza, all's well thanks....music's going well. I'm still doing my own stuff as a solo artist and recently put together a backing band, reggae and reggae vibed music...been a while since I shared any tracks with you so here's a sample....Nothing's What It Seems, They Don't Even See, Losing Faith, Just Beneath The Skin especially should catch your ear.

Here's some photos from our first gig last week, in Leeds:

I'm guessing you'll have Neville's book as well?
