On 6 Music today at 12

Matt Everitt speaks to Terry Hall about the musical moments that shaped his life and career.
As frontman of The Specials Terry Hall represented a kind of detached, dry kind of cool totally at odds with other pop stars of the time.
After leaving the band at the height of their fame in 1981 Terry went on to from Fun Boy Three and The Colourfield - before embarking on a multifarious career that's seen him work with Damon Albarn, Lily Allen, Sinead O'Connor and leap from style to style in way few artists do (or can). All while maintaining this deadpan sense of humour and his own unique vocal style.
Terry doesn't often do interviews, but in this show he talks about his early musical loves growing up in Coventry (Perky and Edith Piaf - which says a lot about him), the early days and huge success of The Specials and the infighting and pressures that led him to quit the band.
He also talks about his passions for Patti Smith, Easy Listening, working with Albarn as a member of Gorillaz and his experience suffering a breakdown ("I refused to take my duffel coats off for eighteen months"). Plus he discusses his reasons behind getting The Specials back together for their triumphant gigs in 2008 and exclusively his plans to start writing songs again.
