John participated in the The Specials reunion tour of 2009

The English musician died on 28 December 2015.

Jerry Dammers the keyboards player with The Specials and The Special A.K.A. told RAW RAMP:

Hearing of Brad’s death has been a great shock to me and it is a very sad day indeed. I was  friends with Brad and the two of us shared a house some time before the Specials.”

“ He was highly intelligent, had a very mischievous sense of humour which could be very funny, and he played the drums with an incredible amount of energy which was a very important part of the Specials’ sound and live shows.  We had some really great times together and it is truly tragic that he has died so young.  My thoughts are with all his family.
