Sad news. The Specials were amazing. RIP to a great one.RIP to Terry Hall of The Specials. Got to see him twice as part of The Special Beat and they were among the greatest, most fun filled shows I've ever seen.
"Ain't you heard of contraception?"
I saw him several times, but my favorite was at the old Let It Be record store. Just Robyn and his guitar.Another classic from Robyn Hitchcock, Madonna of the Wasps.
Yeah, I miss Let It Be as well, along with Northern Lights. I remember making a full afternoon of just checking out those stores.I saw him several times, but my favorite was at the old Let It Be record store. Just Robyn and his guitar.

I remember watching this when it aired. Favorite band playing my favorite talk show.It kind of jarring to see Stipe with a full mop of curly hair. Mills looked like a kid that got dropped off by his parents.
R.E.M. on Letterman with Radio Free Europe and a song which would become So Central Rain
I'm sure I saw it, I probably never missed more than an episode or two of Letterman a month until 1992. A staple all the way through college. I remembered the Herschel Walker line.I remember watching this when it aired. Favorite band playing my favorite talk show.
