John „Brad“ Bradbury, Schlagzeuger der Ska/Punk Band The Specials, ist im Alter von 62 verstorben. Diese traurige Nachricht teilte seine Familie auf der Hompage der Band mit.
Hier die Nachricht der Familie zu den Tod von John Bradbury:
It is with deepest regret that we have to announce the very sad news that our much loved husband and father John „Brad“ Bradbury passed away on Monday the 28th of December. Brad’s drumming was the powerhouse behind The Specials and it was seen as a key part to the Two Tone sound.
He was much respected in the world of drumming and his style of reggae and ska was seen as genuinely ground breaking when The Specials first hit the charts in 1979. He was an integral part of The Specials reforming in 2008 and toured with them extensively up to the present day.
His contribution to the world of music can not be understated and he will much missed by family, friends and fans alike. It is the families sincerest wish that they are allowed the time to remember him privately.
Ein wirklich trauriger Tag für den Rock’n’Roll. Neben den Tod von John Bradbury musste man am 29. Dezember auch den Abschied von Motörhead Legende Lemmy Kilmister hinnehmen.
