John Bradbury, drummer of ska band The Specials, has passed away 62 years old, writes the BBC.
“It is with deep sadness as we say goodbye to our dear friend, the world’s best drummers, our beloved Brad, “writes the band on his Twitter account.
Bradbury replaced Silverton Hutchinson as the drummer of The Specials in 1979 and continued to play with the elements of the original set of the newly formed band The Special AKA between 1981 and 1984. He joined then again when The Specials reunited in 2008.
The Specials had two England The ones with the singles “Too much too young” and “Ghost Town”.
