The band was called The Specials, its lead singer was Terry Hall.


The band announced late Monday night that Hall had died after a brief illness.

The Specials formed in the English Midlands city of Coventry in the late 1970s.  The band was comprised of a mix of Black and white members and sported a Jamaica-influenced style of sharp suits and porkpie hats.

The Specials captured the uneasy mood of the times in songs including “A Message to You, Rudy,” “Rat Race,” “Too Much Too Young” and “Ghost Town.”

Terry Hall was 63.
