John ‘Brad’ Bradbury, drummer with The Specials, has died at the age of 52.
The ska group tweeted the news: “It is with deep regret that we say goodbye to our great friend, the world’s greatest drummer, our beloved Brad. RIP.”
When the original Specials split in 1981, he joined the reversioned band The Special AKA, who had a top 10 hit with Free Nelson Mandela.
Bradbury took part in The Specials reunion tour in 2009. He also headed up a band called JB Allstars.
