Leider wartet 2022 nochmal mit einer traurigen Neuigkeit auf. Terry Hall, Frontmann der Ska-Band The Specials, ist im Alter von 63 Jahren verstorben. Laut Angaben der Band starb er an den Folgen einer kurzen Krankheit.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing, following a brief illness, of Terry, our beautiful friend, brother and one of the most brilliant singers, songwriters and lyricists this country has ever produced. Terry was a wonderful husband and father and one of the kindest, funniest, and most genuine of souls. His music and his performances encapsulated the very essence of life… the joy, the pain, the humour, the fight for justice, but mostly the love. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him and leaves behind the gift of his remarkable music and profound humanity. Terry often left the stage at the end of The Specials’ life-affirming shows with three words… “Love Love Love” We would ask that everyone respect the family’s privacy at this very sad time.The Specials

Besonders in den späten 70er und den 80er Jahren waren The Specials maßgeblich an der Ska-Bewegung Großbritanniens beteiligt. Unser herzliches Beileid allen Fans, Freunden und Hinterbliebenen.
