Horace Panter on the Rise, Fall and Rise of The Specials

Horace Panter, aka Sir Horace Gentleman, co-founded The Specials with Jerry Dammers in 1977 in Coventry, England. For four years The Specials rose and ultimately flamed out, mirroring one of their iconic songs, “Too Much Too Young.” After a 29-year gap, the band reunited and is still going strong today. Horace traces the journey, which also included stints with General Public and Special Beat, and talks about his work in art both as a teacher and an artist.
