Madness frontman Suggs told the UK's Daily Star that the elusive Jerry Dammers may actually re-join the reunited Specials next year. I think that the Star is kind of like the UK's version of the NY Post - that is to say, very gossipy and not super credible - but if they're right this is cool news.

Jerry Dammers is the keyboardist and songwriter and leader of The Specials, and has had beef with his former band and their intent to reunite with or without him. Hopefully, Suggs is right about this. A Specials/Madness tour would be a great time - I'm sure Suggs was referring to a UK/Europe tour, but I bet it would be a big hit at certain cities in the US.
