On December 18, 2022, the world tragically lost one of its most talented singers, songwriters, and influential lyricists: Terry Hall. He will be deeply missed, as there was no stronger voice when it came to calling out the ills of the world—from racism, to war, to gun violence. He simply cared about people and wanted more wrongs to be righted.
On May 29, 2019, I proudly declared “the Specials Day” in LA, honoring Terry and his talented bandmates. It’s a day I will always cherish and our City will, too.
Rest in Power, Terry. You touched the lives of millions with your words that will continue to give strength and fearlessness for our pursuit of a better and more inclusive world. Thank you for your kindness, friendship, and being unapologetically you.
