Jerry Dammers was the organist, leader and principle songwriter of The Specials.
Dammers also masterminded the launch of the 2 Tone record label and later, the Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute concert that took place at Wembley Stadium on 11 June 1988.
While The Specials reformed in 2009, Jerry refused to complete the original lineup. Dammers currently leads an 18-piece orchestra, The Spatial AKA.
