Happy birthday to one of the most liked and enduring British frontmen we have seen, Mr Graham ‘Suggs’ McPherson. From his emergence into the energetic 2 Tone music scene in the late 70′s and early 80s with Madness, to his solo career and music management to presenting on the TV and Radio and becoming a published writer he has entertained a nation. Tomorrow is the birthday of Cathal ‘Chas Smash’ Smyth so we would also like to extend our good wishes to him.
